|I have plenty of these seeds to trade, so if you don't have anything that i want to trade for i will offer some seeds for a limited amount of people.
Turkish Rocket (Bunias orientalis) - Super easy to grow and quick to establish, edible leaves are OK, but nothing too special, however the flower buds are prolific and very tasty, similar to broccoli-raab.
Hablitzia (Hablitzia tamnoides) - Clumping vine bearing tender spinach like leaves, very productive when it's happy. Does well in part shade. Prefers slightly alkaline soil, but does fine in neutral / lightly acid as well.
Good King Henry (Blitum bonus-henricus) - Classic british perennial veggie. Leaves are best cooked and somewhat resemble spinach. Flower buds and seeds are also edible and tasty. Produces a lot in full sun and good soil, but does fine in weak soil and/or part shade.
I am looking for:
Zone 5 hardy perennials, especially
*Anything edible or medicinal
*Eastern US Natives
*Rare or Unusual species

|I'm not into those, but ediblelandscapingsc is.
There are 255 "HAVE" plants in ediblelandscapingsc's plant list, and many look edible. He's Zone 7, though.
Anyway, I see his name in both currently-organizing seed swaps:
You might want to contact home about seed trades, or join one of the swaps. Group swaps are great because you only pay postage twice, but might get 100 varieties of seed in return.
And anyone offering unusual seeds like you have is highly appreciated.
Just because it ISN'T complicated doesn't mean I can't MAKE it complicated!

| to garden.org infiniteohms I agree with Rick we would love to have you join the seed swaps. Diversity is very important in the swaps. I'm not too big on leafy greens but I'll have some things I can share with you later this fall if you are into fruits and nuts. I'll also have a few Jerusalem artichoke tubers and maybe some other things. By chance do you have any Apios americana or Pinus edulis seeds?

Thanks! I will take a look at the swaps on monday. I certainly am into fruit and nuts! I have apios tubers, but no seeds.
