Welcome to the New Spectacular Fresh Fall Seed Swap 2008

For those that already have participated in my Back to School Swap, its the same directions so you have until November 31st to get your seeds in, then I can have to you before Christmas..... Happy Thanksgiving & Merry Christmas.


DIRECTIONS FOR SPECTACULAR FRESH FALL SEED SWAP:

1) Sign up today, whether you a a seasoned veteran or a newbie, this is the best way, and easiest way to get new seeds, so try it and you'll love it.... guaranteed...

2) Please Note: If you keep your email hidden, email me at godsgarden9@yahoo.com for where to mail the seeds to.

3) Seeds per package: This is a general minimum, so not the law, just to give some general guidelines.. use your own discretion, many give more seeds, thats up to you... Large- if unusual seeds(6+), if cheap ex, Mammoth-sunflowers, (12+), Medium (20+), Small(35+). Tiny (50+), if common seeds you can add more, if specialty seeds you can add less.. just a guideline...

4) Please list the seeds you send me, this will help, so you will get little of your own seeds back, include enough postage to return your new seeds back to you, and a sticker with your return address is good, I can reuse the envelopes you send to me. If you have a wish list, if able will try to give you some of your wants if possible.

5) I will try to reward those that send more unusual or unique seeds, with filling their wish list or more unusual ones in return, but everyone should receive a nice selection regardless of what you send. But will get what people send in.

6)If you have any other questions you can contact me at godsgarden9@yahoo.com.

7) So what are you waiting for, you have two months, and even if you are a little late, for some reason, you can send your seeds in late... so sign on today.. many of you that sent in for Back to School, will soon be receiving your seed packets.. enjoy yourself and be blest.. Willy.

    My seeds were delayed in the mail so I re-mailed them as soon as I could, which was past the deadline, and Willy said it wasn't a problem. Shortly thereafter, I received an envelope stuffed with many wonderful, different kinds of seeds. Thanks again for all the work you put into this Willy. The way did your swap was very nice, and many people seemed to have liked it, and I would like to host a swap similar to this one but for ornamental (indian) corn, gourds/squashes, pumpkin seeds, and any other seeds that can be grown and used for Fall decorations next year. Thanks again for the wonderful seeds and inspiration, Willy. ~LilyLoverLynn~

    Bump! Eagerly awaiting! I hope you're not overwhelmed, Willy.

  • drippy
    15 years ago

    Boo, I don't know if Willy answered you in an email or not, but I just want to tell you I've been participating in his swaps for a few years, and he is a great host. He's a member of the clergy, so this is a really busy time of year for him - and a ton of people signed up for this swap, too, so I'm sure he's got scads of sorting to do in between the extra services that often happen at this time of year. He typically has a fairly speedy turnaround time, but if we have to wait, the results will be well worth waiting for - of that I have no doubt.

  • booberry85
    15 years ago

    Drippy, thanks for responding. I guess I was spoiled in the "Back to School Swap" he sponsored. I got seeds back amazingly fast. I wasn't meaning to pester him. Just curious. I'm like a little kid every time I get seeds in the mail.

    Hi, Willie. When can we expect the seeds from the November exchange? I mailed 300 seeds in late November.

    Thanks! Rachelle DeLaurier / GardenPrincess

    I got my seeds today! Yippee! Thank you so much Willy. Will be able to take time later to go through and study and sort what I received, but at first glance it looks really great! Only one question - what is St. Patrick's Amaranthus?

    I received my seeds today. I hate to admit I've been so busy with other things I completely forgot about it. :) It was a wonderful surprise to receive them.

    Hello Willy,

    I also received my seeds on either Friday or Saturday....what fun! There are so many that I need to look up on Google, and that is a great thing! I also received many wonderful varieties that I do know, but did not already have.

    Thanks so much, and count me in for next year!

    Happy Holidays,

    I received my seeds today and I was so excited. It's about 10 degrees here with a wind chill factor of -10 so thoughts of spring are definately welcome!! Thanks so much!! Linda

    Hi, Willy - you've done it again! I received my lovely selection of seeds today. If I had nothing in my garden, this would be enough to have a magnificent cottage garden with. Thank you so much for your time and effort, and I am delighted (as usual)with the result!

  • gee_oh_nyc

    Thanks Willy, and everyone! This is a great assortment.
    Now to get wintersowing!
    I hope your holidays are a blessing to you all.

    Thank you Willy for hosting this swap and for everyone who participated. Really enjoyed checking the mail today and later digging through all those seeds. Some will require googling.

    I did get a package of hyacinth bean vine which read, "purple pods and flowers. Edible when tender-young, in small quantities." I don't know why anyone would write that on hyacinth bean vine seeds. So in case anyone else got seeds saying the same thing, HYACINTH BEAN VINE SEEDS AND SEED SHELLS ARE HIGHLY TOXIC DO NOT EAT THEM!!!

    Best to you and Happy Holidays!!,

    Got my seeds today, actually they were around in neighbor's mailbox yesterday, thank you Willy, especially for the sweet peas, planting them asap. Weather's fooling us and plants, can't possibly be early spring already, even zinnias are reseeding themselves.
    Happy New Year!! and all the best to you and all.

  • evonnestoryteller

    Mine did not arrive yet. I am hoping either the mailings are staggered or the holiday mail slowed the shipment down!

  • roflol
    15 years ago

    27 people have posted they received theirs so far... I didn't go back and check but I think there were a lot more than that who signed up. Granted, not everybody comes back to post they received theirs. I also requested nothing back if it wasn't on my wants list, but just wondering if that's going to be the case - could you let me know, please, Willie? Thanks either way. :]

    If anyone knows if this swap is over and completed, I would appreciate hearing from them. I have not received my seeds so far.

  • roflol
    15 years ago

    I don't think he's completely done yet. I emailed him direct and he replied, said he still has mine, got overwhelmed with life stuff and plans to send it soon. Sorry, Evonne, I meant to forward that to you right off.

  • evonnestoryteller
    15 years ago

    Thanks for the note!

  • alwaysagarden
    15 years ago

    Gosh that's a long time to wait for your seeds. Hope Willy is doing okay and that you both do get your seeds soon. If either one of you winter sow I'm sure your anxious to get some of those seeds started.

    Cindy

  • roflol
    15 years ago

    Heya! I received my seeds in the mail Monday. On checking with Evonne at that point, though, she had not received hers yet. Here's hoping she hears from Willy soon. :]
