    NEW: Secret Santa: Seed Swap (6th year)


    Comments (150)
    Well folks I am home after a weekend in the Temple hospital. God blessed me with some great doctors and nurses . What I was transferred to Temple for is they thought there was a problem with my aorta lining being separated in one spot and Harker Hights could not handle such issues . But much to the doctors relief as well as mine this was not the case . The whole problem revolved around an alergic reaction which developed over time to my prescription to lisinopril which is a blood presure med. so be warned if you are prescribed this med you may after time develop an allergic reaction which involves swelling in the extremities which is inflamed and at times it itches . also can lower your blood pressure to near dangerous low levels. so be on guard if you your loved ones or your friends take this drug it can be dangerous.Some other good news I forgot to mention. Since I last saw my Doctor in Bryan earlier this year my heart function is up 9% and I have lost 15 pounds . A great victory thanks to the help and good care of my doctors and nurses And the good Lord looking after me. This is one reason I have not been very active on the forum this year. hope to change that dramatically. I have missed everyone. Merry Christmas. Kevin

    11th Annual Secret Santa Seed Swap WISH LIST ONLY THREAD


    Comments (41)
    Many of the groundcovers/living mulches/perennial tapestries that once clothed my garden have by now been stolen or otherwise removed, so I'd love to have seeds of easily direct-sown flowers, herbs and/or vegetables that can be kept to 3' or lower with which to cover the ground. There are short or dwarf forms of many flowers that Celia Thaxter grew in her island garden off the coast of New Hanpshire(?) in a diagram of her garden, accompanied by a list of her flowers here: Anything from her garden or similar that might help keep weeds down would be much appreciated. Some suggestions are: Asters - ones like tiger paws? other? Coreopsis - threadleaf Cosmos - dwarfs, like Popsocks etc Dianthus like "Picotee Pinks (D. chinensis x D. barbatus in our time), Sweet William Helianthus angustifolius(sp?) - Willow Leaf Sunflower - leaves are slender like willow leaves - not in Celia's garden, but she would have loved this if she had known about it - not all floppers welcome on my slopes, but this one would be wonderful anything blue and spikey like larkspur, but doesn't expire because of Maryland summer heat & humidity Anything attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies, bees Mallows including malva, althea (dwarf), etc. Marigolds- any - like Tagetes tenuifolia(sp?) - Cottage Red Mignonette (Reseda odorata) Poppies - Eschscholzia like 'Rose Chiffon', Papaver alpinus, P. nudicaule(sp?), P. paeoniflorum Silene - any Zinnia - low growing - Chippendale? disease resistant like Profusions, haageana, Zahara If all goes well, I'm hoping this will approximate my New England grandmother's garden of long ago

    I would like to sign my dad up for this swap. His GardenWeb name is SalsaCanner and he participated a couple years ago. He REALLY enjoyed it.

    He lost his son in a motorcycle accident this summer (my brother, Patrick) at only 23 years of age.

    I am kind of asking this as a surprise for him this December, if anyone would like to send him a Christmas card with a pack of seeds, to hopefully brighten his spirit a little. The holidays are not going to be easy for us.

    Please let me know if you plan on sending my dad some seeds and I will be sure to send some to you. You can just send me an email/message here on GardenWeb.

    My dad especially enjoys peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and beans. He enjoys really any vegetable or any flowers.

    Thank you and let me know if you want to send anything to him so I can return the favor :)

    Hey red, great idea for your dad, real thoughtful. Sure he will get lots of cards from here. You don't need to send back cards to those that send to him though, that's not really how this swap works. If you have seeds you want to share, just pick some people who are looking for seeds that you have and send 'em on. This swap always works out well like that. Sorry for your family's terrible loss and may the holidays be bearable for ya'll.

    Sort of OT but also part of the ongoing swaps that appear on GW:

    There is also a seed swap on the Chili peppers forum going on at this time. If you have seeds you wish to trade for others that you are looking for (lots of packets to go around) you should sign up. Closing up end of the month.

    Hope Santa blesses you all.
