Part II of the Fall Fling seed Exchange starting now. Do you think I should cut and paste the rules at the front here?

The deadline for mailing your seeds is October 27th.



The following is from tkhooper:

RULES
1. Please try to put at least 20 seeds per pack.
Send a pack of seeds that you would be happy receiving!
2. Mail your seeds no later than October 27th.
3. Send a wishlist of the seed you would like with the understanding that I'll do my best but can't guarantee that you will get what you hope for.
4. Send a SASBE (self-addressed stamped bubble envelope) with your seeds. Please make sure you have enough return postage on the envelope.
5. Please limit the maximum number of seed packs per envelope to 100. Multiple mailings are ok!
6. I will do my best to get your seeds to you by Thanksgiving.



The following is from me:
NOTICE! All seed packs will be cataloged.
If you send weed seeds we will be able to track who they came from, and you will be banned from participating in future seed swaps, and your name will be posted in the seed Exchange forum as a "risk"!

If you'd like to participate in this Swap, please PM Tammy (tkhooper) for her address to mail your seeds.

It seemed like a good idea. That way if there are late comers they can find all the information.

Is anybody sending in purple hyacinth bean vine seeds?

I read about white being sent in, sounds like they will be rare so I won't ask - will leave to somebody who can reliably "make more".

So wondered about purple (or any other color for that matter), and if I might ask for that in the big swap (I know, TK, I only said a few things, I guess I had one more in me, lol).

shocked

Tammy, did you want us to send you our wish list also? I am keeping mine extremely simple and had planned on sending it with the seeds and my final count of seed packets.

Hi Sarah,

You can just add your wishlist to your envelope of seeds. But if you forget to put it in there you can pm me your wishlist so I still get it. I was so excited the first year I joined the fall fling I ended up having to send several parcels because I kept on forgetting to put things in the envelope. Like the return envelope, and then I forgot the stamps, and the wishlist. Sometimes I can be really disorganized if I get excited. That's why I'm trying to be very organized from the very beginning with this so that everyone gets a wonderful selection of seeds.

It's around the same number of participants Sibyl. How are you doing? Everything comming along ok?

I'm trying to figure out where I'm going to put the seeds during my dinner party on Friday lol. I'm sure I'll figure out something right after I manage to find a 4th chair lol.

Sometimes I volunteer for things before I think it through. But it will all be fine.

Just kidding.
The seed exchange is going fine. It's the dinner party I'm worried about. I have really limited space and with the seeds spread out finding a place for the dinners took alittle thought. But all is fine. Thursday I'll go to the store for the fresh stuff and Friday we eat.

Well,
I have 70 seed packets ready to mail, Tammy. Various sunflower varieties...If anyone is curious about what my sunflowers look like, I have posted pictures over the last several months on Michael's sunflower garden (A sunflower garden) topic.
I'll probably go by the post office in the morning on my way in to work...I will try not to forget to inclue the return postage or my wish list. smile...

Outstanding you are all doing wonderful.

Thankyou Charlie for getting your seeds in so soon. If the other seeds do ripen before the 27th multiple mailings are ok.

I know exactly what you mean about doing gardening chores rather than cleaning the house. I do the same thing.

Thankyou so much for joining the Fall Fling. Have a great day.

Your very welcome Penny.

I've been out checking the social services crepe myrtle today since I had to go there anyway. And I got a bunch of seed pods. Hopefully some of them will still have seeds in them. They are hard for me to tell if they are open or not. Probably because I won't ware my glasses like I should.

Anyway there may just be enough for a package.
