I was happy, I had enough of the double cosmos to make 2, 10 seed packets...I know it's not many per packet but I didn't have many and they are harder to come by.

I hope someone gets them that loves them! Cosmos are my fav! thumbup They're really cool too!

Gotta go do that wishlist, maybe while I cook dinner.

I have a small wishlist too but it's great when you get the package and look up the seeds you don't recognize and realize what a beautiful flower. I can't believe the amount of flowers and veggies out there.

Tammy, my seeds are all packed up and ready to go in the mail tomorrow. Thanks for doing this once again. You Rock!

Last night, Park's shipped out my seeds, how great is that?? lol - they must have seen me complaining here yesterday.

Kratz7, your seedlings look amazing. I too started some seeds-just peppers though. They are just starting to put on their first set of real leaves. I had to replant a few though, the seeds rotted before they germinated. Good luck!

Hi Loz, since they are rare hard to find cosmos I'm sure noone will mind that there are less than 20 seeds in the packets. If they do I can always send them a packet of something else. We always have a few people that send in more than they want back. And since I don't have a garden this year I have plenty of surplus lol.

My egyptian walking onions are doing great. They are sprouting right up there. It will be a while before I see my banana peppers, sweet william tomatoes, asters, or jasmine. But I can be patient since I have a good reason to check them daily and water them often and just in general be busy with the indoor germination process.

Next thing I'm going to plant are the short zinnias with big red flowers that I harvested from the local McDonalds. Well it may not be the next thing I plant since they don't take long to germinate but they are definitely one of the things on my list.

I keep on looking at the celery that is in the spring Fling and thinking how much I would like to have a packet of that. But I'm not going to be greedy. I'll wait until I have most of the wishlists in and then if it is still available I plan to snatch it up lol. Sometimes it's hard to be good with so many interesting seeds sitting on the table tempting me lol.

Makes me want to order all sorts of things from the catalogs and I really shouldn't.

We are up to 27 members in the spring Fling. I'm excited. I can't wait for the ice to go away so I can get mail. I'm assuming that they won't go out in this it is so slick it's unbelievable.

Really? I always wonder why they have such a bad reputation. I can understand the DMV, but the PO has always been so very quick and helpful. If there is a line, they open up more registers. How nice is that? THen again, I live in a relatively small town, 30K or less. But the PO does everything by weight and size, not just size. So you will need a final weight, or a good estimate.

Mark, usually 3 stamps on the big envelope is enough especially for short runs like from new york to here. Distance is also a consideration for the PO but it isn't a huge difference in cost.

Sibyl, I hope she joins too.

We have 29 people registered for the spring Fling so far and more joining everyday. I'm so excited. We have more people now than we had signed up for the Fall Fling.

Can someone PM me and tell me how this works? Sounds interesting wavey

Oh, and as far as postage, you can go here:
http://www.usps.com/tools/calculatepostage/welcome.htm?from=home&page=0061calculatepostage
if you know the weight of your item. Just select domestic if it is going to another state, or international if going abroad, then select what style of package (envelope, box, etc)and zipcodes to and from.
If you don't have a postage scale, use a regular kitchen scale to calculate ounces, or a bathroom scale to calculate pounds, then add a bit extra postage to be safe. smile
(I used to sell things on eBay and this is how I did mine to avoid the long PO lines!)
