Got mine! Thank you SO MUCH. Alana, you're awesome. Hurray! Hurray!
I made myself put up all the groceries I'd just gotten before opening the huge envelope. Tee hee. What fun.

Thank you to the folks who sent seeds for the school. They have quite a selection. I'll post pics on the results thread later.

My packets arrived today too, and made me feel better than I have in the past couple weeks. My mother passed away recently and, gardener and bargain-hunter that she was, I know she would have been impressed with how much I got for $7 due to all you generous people. (I'd included a few vegetables for her, which I'm probably now going to have to learn to grow myself!)

Alana, I didn't realize how many of your seeds I'd picked until I saw them all together in one bundle, but you have such good stuff. I actually did send out a few more packets than I took in, so I'm resolutely not going to feel guilty about being such a hog!

Mine are here Hurray! Haven't opened them yet, sick with the flu, hoping by weekend I'll get some started. Thank You! Again Alana for all your hard work and a big thanks to all the generous traders that allowed me to get some great seeds. I tip my hat to you.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I got my package! Hurray! Thank you @poisondartfrog you did such a great job!! First thing I did was open the package and spread everything out on the table. So excited about so many of these new seeds I got. Tonight's podcast will be about winter sowing and I plan to sing the praises of this swap.

Ronnie, what a time to have the flu!

I got the few seeds missing from Sorellina's package today. I'll get those packed up for the 4-5 people that need them this weekend.

I'll have to play that podcast Dave. I have 3-4 things from my haul I'm going to wintersow, but a lot of it is going on the heat mats this weekend. nodding

I just got done going through the seeds, and am very excited to start sowing this weekend! Special thanks to @danita, @mrsbinwy, and @poisondartfrog for the great gifts. Alana, don't worry about sending me the lime basil, I don't really need it. I've got so many seeds I may not even be able to start them all this year. Every year I think I have enough containers and potting mix because surely I won't start as many things this year. After all, the garden beds are all packed to the gills already. Then I join a swap to get just a few things and.... well you know how it goes. Smiling You all just had too much good stuff!

Same with me. I dibbed Lime Basil because it looked good to me, but I certainly don't want anyone to incur extra shipping just so I can have that. I already have plenty of other basils. @poisondartfrog if the seeds are already on the way, please just hold on to them for yourself or a future swap. Smiling

Got my seeds! I usually crow about them in public, but we have company tonight. I had to make myself sit and eat dinner. These will be my after-dinner treat (along with a coconut cupcake with lemon frosting)! So much fun that's all just the beginning of a new gardening adventure. Thanks for doing this for us, Alana.

Two bonuses. Got the seeds and wife suggested I build a greenhouse. Wow, that came out of nowhere. Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket today. Thank you all for your kindness.

I got my package late last night as well.

I sat down this morning with coffee and went through the package. I really have some great new to me plants to get started. Smiling

I ordered 3 more of those container growing set ups so that I can have room in the greenhouse to start the 1000s of plants I want to grow and don't yet know where they will be planted. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Thank you Alana and all who shared their seeds with me. Group hug
