NEW: New Year Seed Swap

sadielady
17 years ago

This is a perfect opportunity to get the New Year started. Some people like myself start seeds inside. This will be a perfect time to start a new garden. This is how it will start. I will start the box off with seeds you take out what you want and replace them with some of yours. There will be a list of names and addy in the box when you refill the box send it to the next person.. Sounds fun it is hope you all join

    sadielady: can you post where the robin is heading to? I don't go to my PO Box every day and like to know when to expect things so I can be watching for them.

    Thanx!

    I have been sick with this flu and now walking pnemonia so I have to stay in and sort the seeds
    thanks

    NEW: 2015 New Years Everything Goes Seed Swap

    Q

    Here is my Rate and Review of godsgarden9 Fall Spectacular 2014 Lots of common mixes and unknowns. Packs labeled saffron that were actually safflowers, that you can get as bird food. Grapefruit and pomegranate seeds? Come on now! The bubble mailer I received wasn't nearly as fat as the one I sent. That was disappointing. There were some interesting packs of seed but not enough to bring me back to another one of Willy's Swaps. Be weary of this one, it looks like he has an ebay seed store too. Other interesting reviews of Willy http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/brug/msg0808224027170.html There is also a review of Willy using his name 7servant7 on DG, but I can't include that link here. Makes you wonder how many other names he's using to pedal YOUR seeds. Don't think he's going to send you what he's selling in his store either. Here's Willy's rate and review address. http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/raterev/msg1119182330922.html?18 Here is a link that might be useful: Willy's ebay store

    My ultra-fab package of seeds arrived a couple days ago. Sorry I haven't posted till now, but, well,...again, we're dealing with various familial/medical issues that are kind of distracting at times. Anyway,...thanks uber muchly, Willy, and everyone else for another absolutely delightful seed swap! Such a wonderful variety of generously contributed seeds! I promise I will post glowing "Rate & Review Exchanges" ratings for whoever I can;...just not this evening. I have a dang dirty cold (taking Zicam, though) and it's late, and I'm tired. - "Willy, thanks again! You're aces, bud!" :)

    well I have emailed sadie & also rainbow to let them know that the robin has not yet showed up .

    I hope there is a list in the box ,if it arrives .
    when & if it dose show up you can bet I will post & there will be a conf # to be sure it reaches its next stop safly :))

    sue

  • RainbowLake
    17 years ago

    Sorry Bloomingbird
    I mailed the robin the same day that I posted. I didn't put a confirmation number on it because it was just a padded envelope and didn't have a confirmation number
    on it when I received it. It does have sadie's return address on it and yours of course so hopefully it will show up at one place or the other.

    Karen

  • shimla
    17 years ago

    Karen - Sue sent me an email today saying that she did receive the envelope. She is getting a new computer so I'm not sure if she'll be able to post tonight or not.

    just wanted you all to know that if you would spend that extra little 35-45 cent's for the conf # it will be like an insurance that the person will recieve the package much sooner even going reg mail.

    Would it be possible for you to post a list of the remaining people left in this robin and the order they should receive it? Even though postage isn't much, I still need to be able to plan for it and it helps if I have an idea when the robin might land here. I, and I'm sure others would appreciate it.

  • Koppasetic

    Well I guess I don't need to plan for shipping. Sadie, Why wasn't I included in this Robin? I was the second one to sign up. I assume I wasn't included in the second round either. What a disappointment.

    Melanie

  • neonposey
    17 years ago

    Sadie: I don't want to hijack your robin, but if you like I can send to Koppasetic to get her in the list. Just let me know if its OK and I can get Melanie to send me her addie.

  • tennessee_countrycut
    17 years ago

    OK i got 2 robins here the second round got to me first.
    I just got the first one today.
    I need to know if both go to the next person on the first list because the second didn't have the list marked as to whom it should go to next.
    Do i send it to the first one on the list?
    sorry for the hold up.

  • tennessee_countrycut
    17 years ago

    OK i got the second round 2 day's ago and i got the first round yesterday.
    I am not going to take anything out and am going to send them both to the next on the list.
    I didn't think 2 Day's would be too long to keep it but i guess i was wrong.
    It will go out in the mail today.
    I will post the confirmation number this evening.

  • tennessee_countrycut
    17 years ago

    I forgot to come back and put the confirmation number
    sorry about that 0303 1910 0001 666 6286 first round.
    second round 0303 1910 0001 6666 6255

  • neonposey
    17 years ago

    The birdie arrived in NC this morning. Thanx Tennessee_CountryCut!

    Im assuming its the first birdie because its a very fat package and marked as SadieLady's New year Round Robin. I'm guessing birdie 2 will be here tomorrow or the next day. I'll need a day or 2 to go thru them but will post when I send it out with confirmation number and a heads up to who its going to.

    Sadie: Do you want me to split the birdies up and send Birdie #2 to the last on the list so they can have a different flight path?


    Happy Gardening!

  • neonposey
    17 years ago

    No sign yet of the second birdy. I'm going to ship the first one out tomorrow and will post where its going and the confirmation number.

    Tahnk you all for particapting in this and I guess the birdie is getting fatter as he flyes around so where is it now?
    sadielady

  • neonposey
    17 years ago

    After a nice rest and refueling the birdie was mailed to Koppasetic because she was omitted from the flight plan earlier. I offered to work her in. I received it with 105 packs, picked 16 and replaced with 21 for a total of 110. Its a nice, fat bird with a good variety.

    Unfortunately at the moment I can't find my delivery confirmation number but I will search my car and post it when i find it. It was sent priority mail so should arrive in a few days.

    No word from Birdie #2.

    Thanks and it was fun! Many Blooms to all!

    Yes the Robin has arrived, although it was sent to La, the PO changed the address to Georgia....Just a typo, I guess. I have looked through the bag and will have Sunday to swap out my seeds and the bag will be in the mail on Monday.
    What fun to find all the goodies
    Will post confirmation on Mon evening.
