I'm keeping up with this thread so I don't miss anything. This wait is building anticipation! How many people have joined the swap so far?

forgot to ask, re: the number of posts Just outta curosity, do you start a new thread after 100 posts or do you just start one when you feel that there's too much info? I've just noticed, I'm sort of the 'curosity killed the cat, but not me so I'll just ask whatever I can think of' type of guy

It will probably be over 1000. Or at least that'w what I'm guessing at this point. There are around 25 members so far but until the envelopes actually arrive it's hard to tell. Right now most of the packets that have arrive are about 1/2 filled with their new seeds. Some of the smaller orders are almost full and some have already been sent out. We have a wonderful selection of plants so far. And that's made it pretty easy. The only thing I have to many of are Mammoth Sunflowers and Zinnias. But they are both great flowers so I'm sure noone will mind getting some.

I can take some mammoth sunflowers, I have a habit of putting a little extra with my trades (I forget occassionally, so sorry to those who did not get extras)and I think sunflower seeds might be a good little something extra to give, especially if they have little children (besides, I could always let my brother plant them!)

Tammy...you are taking care of it and I am sure everyone will love what they get, and even if its something they think they don't want to grow, they can give to someone else or trade it to someone. Last year all my seeds I got were very good, but I couldn't plant all of them, so when I traded seeds with someone I would throw in one of these packs as a surprise and everyone loved getting that surprise packet.

sibyl I'll put in my wish list yucaa seeds and love-lies-bleeding, so if your sending them in they'll come to a good home. That is once I send mine in. I will work on puttting the rest of my packets together tomorrow as well. I'm very excited as this is my first time in an exchg this big.

Love lies bleeding is the same thing as amaranthus isn't it? If so there are a few packets in the exchange they are the purple miniature kind. I'm sure more would be welcome. Noone has sent in Yucca seeds so far but as you can see there is an interest.

is this just for flowers or vegetable seeds too? Also, I think I read somewhere that we need to put in 20 seeds. When I do a cone flower I send the entire head. Is this going to work. I don't like getting my fingers stuck trying to separate those seeds.

Sheri, yes the first thread did say to include at least 20 seeds (corret me if I'm wrong) so that no one would feel ripped off. For cosmos, I was going to seperate the seeds from the chaff and I sighed because it took so long and blew everything back together, and then I was like ,heck I'll just put everything in. I'm sure it's ok to put in the whole seed head in! I think any type of seed would work to be honest!

Maybe I'll get your cosmos kenny. I didn't include black eyed susans in my stuff because I can't get the chaff out. I don't mind getting seeds like that but maybe some people do. The messy seeds grow just as well - maybe better. smile

I make sure there's plenty of seed, but anyone getting seed that I sent in (or in any trade with me, for that matter) will likely get some chafe too!

Good. I'm glad I'm not the only one. Have you ever gotten seeds from Tammy? She is the best at cleaning seeds. Not one speck of dirt or left over flower. I don't know how she does it.

You all are so funny. There is plenty of chaf in my packets. You should of seen me with the cinnamon basil. Those little suckers are so sticky they just will not separate from their pods worth a darn.

Veggies are great additions to the fall fling so are herbs.

We just draw the line at bulbs and cuttings lol. As long as it's a seed and isn't a weed your in good shape.

And yes we would like a minimum of 20 seeds per package. Although if it is a tree or bush fewer probably will be ok with most members. But try to think how you would feel if you received the packet and there weren't the 20 seeds you were expecting to get. That's the best way to make that decision I think.

Hey Sheri, I'll look forward to getting your package.

Kennyso I got your jobs tears to roflol and when I get their seeds in I'll get you your cypress vine.

Everyone is doing a great job and making my job very easy. Thankyou so much for participating.

I think 10 palm tree seeds are probably a fine trade. I'm not sure you would want much more than that anyway. Thankyou for adding them to your package. It's always great to get tropical plants in a trade.

Cindy, tell Lola I was looking forward to those seeds lol.

Roflol & Kennyso your very welcome. Glad I could help.

Kennyso, Lorena & LandofOz your packages went out in the mail today. Kennyso I'll send the cypress vine to you in your second shipment. I didn't want you to have to wait on your first shipment for just one packet of seeds. I know I always get excited and waiting is very hard.

The envelopes with close to 100 seed packets take longer to fill than the little ones but they are rapidly filling as well. And we are very much on time I believe.
