All of your packages are showing to be at the North Houston PO facility, which is only a couple of hours drive from my PO in Beaumont. They should all be here by Tuesday. If that happens then I will do my best to have them out to you on Wednesday.

Thanks, Jay, for such a super quick turn around time. I'm looking forward to winter sowing many of these. I've been putting in flowerbeds at our new home last weekend. Slow going when the weather is poor, but rewarding all the same.

Got my seeds this morning! Thanks Jay for such a quick turnaround.

I'm running low on potting mix and hopefully can get some more today. They supposedly had it in stock, but did not have it put out yet last week. Don't they know we gotta have our potting mix in winter too! I don't want those cute little bags of seed starting mix. I need my big compressed bales.

Thank you @wildflowers for the extra wood betony . The bees are gonna love it! I have to be careful with those hemi-parasitic plants that are supposed to grow along with the prairie grasses. One year I sowed some indian paintbrush (which I really wanted bad), along with little bluestem grass. I even added an extra plant tag to remind myself. Later in the year I saw a "weed" growing right in the middle of my little bluestem grass and yanked it out, then saw the tag and realized what it actually was. Sad

Thanks everyone for all the great seeds! Smiling

I tip my hat to you. It looks like everyone either has their seeds or will get them today except poisondartfrog who is having weather issues in her area.

Thank you very much everyone for all the wonderful seeds!

You're very welcome @molanic I remember seeing those on your wish list on another swap Whistling because they were on my wish list too, I went ahead and ordered seeds and thought I would share them with you.

Happy planting everyone!!

I received my seeds on Saturday! Big thanks to @poisondartfrog for bonus seeds of the native Cuphea! Hurray!

I've been busy this weekend putting in about 300 ft of edging. Next weekend, I'll be filling in with loads of topsoil. Hurray!

The mailman was near my mailbox when I got home about 6:30 so I jumped out and relieved him of my mail. My seeds were in the stack. I've not had a chance to open them yet but I'm so glad to have them. Thanks Jay and everyone!
