I'm watching for the Piggy Seed Swap that Ella usually did. Has it moved here or is it still on Cubits?
I know it isn't time for it yet, but I want to be sure not to miss it this year!

Ella had to take a break this year due to health issues, so no Piggy Swap this year. Crying

Danita: Thanks for your response. I do hope it's nothing serious. She was always so diligent
about the seed swap.

Angie, @DogsNDaylilies is trying to put one together for ATP. I doubt that it will look anything like the Piggy Swap, but you might want to keep an eye out for it. I'm sure she will let us know more when the details are worked out.
Here is the discussion thread about it.

Jay - thank you for the tag! Smiling

Yes, things are being worked out right now for a big ATP seed swap. It's exciting stuff! More information to come as it gets finalized (or atleast pretty close to finalization). Keep in mind that the timeline might not be exactly the same as the Piggy Swap, though. Even still, now is a great time to start thinking about what you will have available and put together a tentative trading list over the next several weeks if you would like to participate. Thumbs up

Hemophobic,
There is a swap on Cubits that we've held on another site for the last several years that you might be interested in. http://cubits.org/wishlistswap/thread/view/82979/
Many piggies will be there, too.

Thanks, Alana. I've been debating whether to join a seed swap this year or not . I don't have many seeds of my own,
and while I have many, many seeds left over from former swaps, I hesitate to offer someone else's seeds. I'm now in
a new property which has required great rejuvenation to the gardens and some of my plants are not yet producing
that many seeds as in former years, nor have I yet established as large a plant collection of my own as formerly. I
may well pass on this year's swap and jump into the middle of it next year when I have more to offer.

Thanks again.

I'm not participating, but I have looked over patrob's (Patricia) site regarding the seed swap....and I am stunned by the amount of thought, time and work she has, and does, put into running this swap. Well Done!!!!!!
I could be wrong...
and.....

Sherry: Thanks for the nudge. I'll check out her site and make a decision.

BTW, you bear an amazing resemblance to my older daughter!
