Hi Val,

I've been spending the last few days organizing my seed stash. I did so many swaps & purchased so many seeds that I had seeds all over the place! What I've found is that I now have way too many seeds. I was just thinking I need to get my numbers down and guess what I find when I come to the NGA. Your brand new swap! Hurray!

I'm fairly certain that I'll have enough seeds to swap but I won't know for sure until I'm completely done organizing my seeds. I'm up to "S" now. I'm been trying to flag seeds that need to go as I go along. Once I'm done and I'll check seed dates and see if I have close to 50 packs. I'll keep you posted!

Signed up for now. I'm not sure if I'll have enough flower seeds. I'll see how things go. Hopefully I can collect seeds from my neices' homes. It's just been getting harder and harder to get around.

A bunch of the seedlings I had on my porch may not make it. We've been getting a lot of rain the last few days and when I checked this afternoon, they were swimming. I drained them the best I could and moved them as far away from the edge as I could, but my porch is small. I'm going to sow some more seeds inside over the next few days.

Tamara,
If you can't collect enuf for the summer swap, just keep collecting and there will be a bunch of swaps in the fall...no pressure! It's an odd time of year, most seeds won't be formed, but this swap will stave off some of the swap-withdrawls for some of us :D

Just signed up! Still filing seeds but I'm up to tomatoes now so I don't have much left. Looking forward to the swap & being able to package up seeds well in advance!

@Monetwwqui I don't think I have any more Dutch Iris seeds left. But I just wanted to say that I wintersowed them two years ago and they just sprouted this Spring. I didn't get great germination but the seeds were a couple of years old and I totally let the jugs dry out during the growing season. So if you get seeds just make sure your don't pitch the flat or jug too quickly! My japanese iris seeds sprouted the Spring after I sowed them when I have wintersowed them.

A little over 2 weeks to get your seeds listed for the swap! Time is flying!

Hope everyone's garden is full of blooms (and produce if you're growing veggies) and you're having a good summer!
