UPDATE: Part 4: Theme Garden Seed Swap

sandlapper_rose
15 years ago

I buckled down and did lots of sorting over the past 6 or 7 days. I am very nearly finished. Unless you told me otherwise, everyone now has a nicely stuffed folder. I am going to go through the leftover seeds one more time to see if maybe it didn't click about where they will fit in and then my plan is to post a list of the leftovers here. First come, first served. If you want any of them added to your packet, post here after I add the list and I will watch for people to claim things. I will place a limit of 5 packets per person so hopefully everyone in the swap will get a chance to choose something if they want to. Anything not claimed will be shared with a worthwhile program (like the winter sowing group.)

The list may not be up until after Thanksgiving, but I will see how my time goes. I need to the get house cleaned tomorrow and Tuesday (along with doing my usual errands and work) so I will just have to see how the time goes.

I'll be posting here under Part 4 when I begin to mail the padded envelopes and you can help out by posting when you receive so I won't worry about whether the seeds got to you. I sure hope everyone is happy with the way they were sorted. This was definitely an "eye-opener" for me. I will really appreciate seed swap hostesses more from now on. I wish we were all located closer to one another and we could just have one be seed sorting party!

If I don't get back on here before Thanksgiving, have a safe and happy holiday!

    I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

    Updating here on what seeds are still left if you want to claim some:
    Bachelor Buttons (1 left)
    Silk Tree (1 left)
    Ratibida Pinnata (1 left)
    Zinnia
    Marigold
    Hollyhock
    Cosmos
    Liatris - Purple
    Shasta Daisy (3 left)
    Orange Butterfly Weed (1 left)
    Cleome
    Columbine
    Rose Campion
    Daylily - Stella D'Oro (1 left)
    Morning Glory
    Mammoth Sunflower (1 left)
    Rose Mallow (1 left)
    Hardy Hibiscus (2 left)
    Apple of Peru (1 left)
    Celosia
    Royal Mix Sweet Pea (1 left)
    Butterfly Bush (2 left)
    Datura

    I wil try to list some of the varieties that are left and see if maybe that will cause a few more seed packets to get claimed. After that they will go to winter sowing if appropriate or a "seed charity."

    Have a wonderful day. I wonder how many are out shopping. I was out early but for pet sitting and no plans to go to the stores today although I suspect Christmas will creep up on us in a hurry.

    Enjoy the day!

    UPDATE: Theme Garden Swap

    Ok there Lime,,, I will be planting a Spaghetti Squash (for seeds)and will be looking for some Dread Locks amaranth for Meat balls, to be sending you.... And with a name like Fill-More... Well, it's all in the name... Your sure to be getting MUCH more to fill your beds! That just happens to be a new bed started last year- believe me, they are not all so pretty..... and I tried something new- I have never used a purchased mulch before- I have used compost, leaves and grass, and always seem to add more weeds to the beds than moisture retentiveness- but wow! That is the ticket! From now on- every bed will be getting a thick coat of shredded cypress wood mulch! Very few weeds made it through- the water stayed right in the root zone instead of draining away in my sandy loam- so my notorious non watering self could stay "on top" of a need for water schedule. That is a very nice feature Drippy is adding to this swap- she will be sending the excess on the the newbie projects after we are full of seeds! No worries about tossing them- you will be tossing them in the right direction! To those yet to know about this wonderful GW world of seeds and the great folks who share them! I know I sent a ton of seeds in- and I sent in as much postage as they cost to send, but I am going to be sending on a bit more to cover the excess flow being sent on again. I think I will send chocolate and coffee too- Drippy may need it with all these wonderful seeds heading her way! Thanks Terri for the new mantra.... I think.... Julie

    I got a nice package today from Tina. It had some houseplant starts and some bulbs, which I hopefully will plant on Sunday as it is supposed to be nice, although snow tonight! Yuck :0 There were some nice goodies in ther for my house, candle and some fabulous incense which I am burning right now! A bulb hole digger, and some seeds, baggies and plant markers too! And a magazine for my downtime when feeding my baby, yipee :) Thanks Tina, no worries about taking longer, stuff happens, and I loved my package! Hope things are better for your family, loss of a loved one is all consuming, and I hope you are feeling better. Steph

    NEW: Now Time to Sign up for the 2014 Theme Garden Seed Swap

    Q

    Comments (150)
    Peggy and Lisa, I just re-sent the information to you by e-mail and through GardenWeb. I have no idea why the first mailing didn't reach you. Please let me know when you receive it. If you can mail Tuesday or Wednesday it will be fine. I have surprised myself by working with so many of the arrivals up to this point that I'm hoping I am a little of ahead of where I supposed my schedule might be now. I'm sorry people are having trouble getting the message. Please check your spam folder in case it might be there. I have not gotten the e-mail or GardenWeb information from either of you that you hadn't received my address and the rest of the information so it's not being kind to us. Meanwhile, what great seeds everyone is sending! Many of you have made it very easy for me to distribute the seeds by sending a list or otherwise labeling themes. Thanks so much. All of you are the best! Jeanne

    Plantaholics, I'm sorry this didn't turn out the way you had planned. Maybe drippy will be back to do this swap the same way as in the past next time. If you change your mind, we will be happy to have you join in. I have a questionnaire and instruction sheet ready for the participants. I am going to start to e-mail them this evening but not all will get mailed out today. I will continue with them through the weekend, but if you don't have them by Monday (or can't read what is sent - I am sending them as a Word document), get in touch with me. Okay? Once you get everything, follow the instructions and you can start to send seeds whenever you are ready. Hope we all have lots of fun. The nicest people seem to participate in this swap!!! Jeanne

    Melissa, Michelle, and Kathy -
    I made myself a note to send you those seeds. I hope I can get some of the envelopes packed up late Sunday and to the post office on Monday. It sure won't be all of them, but I would like to get a start. I will try to get all out by the end of next week. Unless something unplanned comes up, that should not be a problem.
    Two of the groups I belong to have their Christmas parties next week. I can't gear up for December this soon. I haven't even started to think of Christmas (well, not much at least...) I know with Thanksgiving being as late in the month as it was, things will all run together.
    Anyway, if I can get a few of the leftovers listed by variety I will. Likely going to run out of time. Maybe I just need to toss a few extra seed packets into all the envelopes except those who said they did not want many seeds back. Most of us find we need some extras or can always share with family or friends.
    I have had to get up really early since Wed. and am running on low energy so I think I will be heading up to bed soon.

    Just wanted to let you know that some of the seeds will be heading to their owners tomorrow. I think I have about 7 envelopes ready to go. Now that the sorting is done, it should not take me too long to label and get the rest in the mail. As I said, hopefully all will go out by the end of the week.
    I will appreciate it if you post here when you receive your seeds so I won't be wondering if they made it or not.
    Have a good week.

    Absolutely! I'm glad you're not stressing any more over getting it done. I think it's a terrific idea to toss a few here and there and just know that most of us will just adore what all we get and/or would love to share some with others, as you mentioned.

    I got the last of the seeds packaged up and now it's time to clear up the scattered papers, rolls of tape, marking pens, etc. I think Kim usually takes time to comment on how decorative or how informative various seed packets are and we had those this year as well, so for those who took a lot of time packaging the seeds and putting lots of information as to what the seed is and how to grow it, know that it was/is appeciated. Some of the packets were lovely and I know you took lots of time doing that!
    I hope I got everything in each envelope that should be in there. I totally apologize if someone got a wrong seed packet or whatever. There should be a note from me in your envelope as well and I'm sorry if I moved along too quickly here at the end and forgot anyone.
    I know some gardeners are getting more seeds back than what you requested, but please humor me - I really needed to get this completed and I know you can use them somehow.
    Anyway, thank you for all the kind words and pats on the back when I was feeling like I would never get through all the sorting. Hooray, one more trip to the post office and my part will be done!!!

Seriously, congratulations on a job well done (a lot of work) that we all appreciate! I hope you enjoy the houseplant with the balloon...

    Thank you for the nice words from all who swapped. Angela, I loved the plant and balloon. Anyway, you are all so sweet.

    That excitement has me jumping up and down, too. I am so happy to see how excited you are!!! And glad to see that the seeds are arriving where they should as well. For those of you with children listed on your information sheet, I must say that sending to the children was my favorite part of this swap. I hope they are excited to get their seed packets as well.
    All the remaining envelopes got mailed today. ghoghunter, somehow a zip lock baggie with some seeds for you did not make it into your envelope so there should be a second smaller envelope arriving a day or two after the big one.
    Here are the rest of the delivery confirmation numbers in case someone wants to track where the packages are:

    Zip 27577 #0308 2040 0000 9713 9479
    Zip 46514 #0308 2040 0000 9713 9486

    Zip 30224 #0308 2040 0000 9713 9875

    If anyone is inclined to do this, I would love to get some feedback on the rate and review section from some of you. I am bad about not thinking to do that after trades and it is a nice way for new traders to see whether or not someone seems to be responsible.

    Have a good rest of the day!

    This is truly a gift that keeps on giving. I received seeds to plants that were new to me so I've been researching some online and it just keeps getting more exciting. I've gotten things I've never seen before and I can't wait to see them blooming next year. This is my first time in a round robin and it has been a great experience.

    Thanks again, Jeanne. You've made a lot of folks very happy with all your effort.

    Micyrey, that was a great dance. LOL
    Sueirish, we had lots of herb seeds sent in and quite a few of us who grow herbs so that was a nice surprise. Glad to see you got some seeds for your Heritage Garden also.
    For those with health concerns (or a bad day), glad the seeds cheered you up.
    We had our Master Gardener luncheon/Christmas party yesterday and the lady who coordinates the Junior Master Gardener program was at my table and they can use the leftover seeds so I will save on postage and just hand deliver them to her. That is a good cause and I love to encourage all the young gardeners which is why I enjoyed putting together some seeds for the kids named in this swap.
    For those who are anxious to sow, check out winter sowing. I don't usually plant until towards the end of January and have had great success with it!
    Talk to you later.

    Well! I arrived home from a full week of teaching (or trying to teach? LOL) music to K-5, to a wonderful, stuffed packet of seeds. I love them all - such a nice selection, including veggies & herbs, and some from my general "wish list", and tons that fit into my many themes! Thanks to all of you who made such generous & thoughtful contributions, and especially thanks to you, Jeanne, for taking this over this year. Believe me, I know what goes into it! And am hoping we might pull it off together next year.

    I will enjoy every one of these - thanks again, all!

    I have a gardening girlfriend whom I've been telling to join GW and check everything out. Well I brought my package to work and let her open it, her jaw fell to the floor and I'm not exaggerating!! We went pawing thru those packages!!
    You people are so generous there's enough seed there to fill both our yards and them some. Bet she'll sign up now huh??
    I honestly think this will be my best Christmas present for years to come.
    Looking forward to researching all these this a.m. Oh and of course planning new beds for it all!!!!lol I kept reading posts saying all of this was addicting and how right everyone was!
    Jeanne thank you so much for being the hostess! What an undertaking, you must be so relieved that it's done. All of your valuable time and effort it so greatly appreciated!!

    Yeah- winters (if you can call them that) here are pretty nice. But from May-Oct & it's 95 degrees & the humidity is off the charts or a hurricane is acomin-- I sometimes wish was somewhere else.

    Have a great weekend everyone and enjoy your new seeds!

    Hi Everyone!!!
    *jumping up and down* I got my package!!! Jeanne, you're AWESOME!! Thanks so much for doing an outstanding job!! And Thanks to ALL of you who sent me seeds XOXO!! I have enough seeds to sow an entire city block for my hummer/butterflies and make the entire block a red bed! Now if I could only get my neighbors to help, that would be soooooo good :)

    I hope all of you are blessed with many more flowers (and seeds of course) this coming year!!!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!

    WOW!!! What can I say? I'm overwhelmed by the number and variety of seeds I got back today!!!!! Thank you so much to each of you who marked seeds for Vincent, Devin and I!

    Jeanne, the boys were thrilled to have their own packages complete with a note and a candy cane! They are ready to start planting now! How wonderful of you to make this so special for them!

    Again, thank you all for the wonderful selection and to Jeanne for hosting this and doing such an amazing job!

    Yippeee! My seeds came yesterday. Thank you Jeanne, for being so organized, and everyone else for such a great selection of seeds! It's always so fun to open a big package of seeds! This was a wonderful swap. Now I have to start getting my wintersowing containers ready!

    Thank you Jeanne, Thank you everyone!

    I love my seeds, I got so many of my wishes, and some super cool stuff for my themes! A special thank-you to those who sent things specifically for me!

    I hope no one minds the crude packets I had to make after I misplaced my ziplock baggies.

    Jeanne, you did such a great job! This is quite an accomplishment! Maybe there should be "Gardenweb Merit Badges"--like in Boy or Girl Scouts. If you host a swap, you earn a badge for it--it's definitely something to be proud of completing successfully.
