I received the last 2 swap seeds from participants last night and the Swap Seeds were mailed out to all but one participant. I have emailed that person and am awaiting a response.

So depending on if you are 2 or 3 day priority mail from me, you should have them on Mon or Tuesday.

Thank you all for organizing so nicely, and for the extra $ and things some of you sent. Everything was greatly appreciated!!!

ENJOY!
Val

Looking forward to more fun seeds. I just found homes for 50 of the 120+ hardy hibiscus that grew out of the seeds I got from Val (she said #20 (50) and #30+ (100) and nearly all of them grew! Hilarious!
I have to make room for the Crape Myrtles, Amaryllis, Jicama, Tomatoes and Peppers that are coming along. Blinking
Next is the Herb Garden. Thumbs up Thank you to everyone!

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! So looking forward to getting my seeds. I need to replant many of the ones I planted from the Red Barn Swap because many that did pop up are now swimming, thanks to Mother Nature. Sometimes she makes it rain at enough of an angle to water my porch. I emptied most of the pots of the excess water and I'm hoping for the best. A few seedlings may still survive, but I have a feeling most of them are just too waterlogged. Oh well that's the nature of gardening. Still, all in all, with the new seeds arriving early this next week, I'm sure the germination of the new batch of seeds will be just in time to transplant into the new raised bed I just won in the Not-A-Raffle-Raffle! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Seeds arrived today!!! I want to open them now, but didn't get home until 11 PM, so I better wait. Thank you everyone for collecting, buying, counting, packaging, labeling and sending the little treasure packs. Sticking tongue out
My latest sprouts are teeny tiny lobelias from the previous swap. I've never attempted to grow them before, so I'm thrilled to come home to all the nearly invisible green specks appearing under the growlight. Lovey dubby

I stayed up until midnight sorting seeds and munching wintergreens and chocolates and finding extra seeds and bonus packs. I have to come in to work today on my day off, but I'm feeling happy and blessed by my huge pile of seeds and visions of summer flowers and veggies. Thank You! again, everyone! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

I had to laugh with I found the wintergreen candies. Thank you, BTW! I kept smelling them but didn't see them in any of the packages. I thought someone was like me and had arthritis in their hands and had been using a pain reliever for it. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

I got mine too! Thanks everyone I've never got so many seeds in the mail at once! And thanks Val for organizing everything, like I said I've never done a group swap before and I didn't realize you were running both swaps I'd joined until I got the address. And then I didn't even think to mail them together! Maybe two swaps was one too many for me, it was hard work but it sure paid off when I saw that envelope stuffed full of goodies! Thanks again I hope to trade with you all in the future! Smiling
