2018 - First Annual Seed Exchange Week - January 20-28 (Edited)

Post  Ginger Blue on 1/14/2018, 6:22 pm

Dear SFGardeners,

This is the time when everyone is reading the new seed catalogs, and many are getting ready to winter sow or start seeds indoors. I discussed seed swapping with sanderson and TD and they gave me the go ahead to try something new.  We will be beta testing a designated week of seed swapping.  If it goes well, we can have an annual seed exchange week.

The beta swap will run January 20-28, 2018 to give everyone a few days to pull their lists together and get them posted.

General Rules:


Members should contact each other directly (PM) for mailing and postage.

Sometimes seeds available do not line up with seeds wanted.  It is alright to ask for seeds without having to send seeds.  Just cover postage.

List seeds to share.  List the name (plus scientific name if known), list the number of packets available, list the number of seeds per packet, the year harvested, and whether you saved the seeds or purchased them.

List seeds you would like to receive, separately.

Example:

SEEDS AVAILABLE
by M. Gardener
Tomato, var. Snow Fairy - 2 packets - 6 seeds per packet - Baker Creek 2016
Pepper, var. Cayenne - 4 packets - 10 seeds per packet - 2017 harvest

SEEDS DESIRED by M. Gardener
Bok choy, var. Ching Chang - 10 seeds



Ready! Set! Go! cheers

This IS a great idea! Thanks, Ginger.

I've actually got a spreadsheet. Some of you have it. You know I have a lot of seeds.... Willing to share!

I cannot start a PM (something about Windows 10, I guess). But I can answer them. If you want my spreadsheet to see what I've got, PM me with an email address & I'll send it to you. Then we can go from there! :-)

Due to my location (Canada), I am opting out. I'm not sure it would be cost effective (postage wise) for me to be involved.

Beetles. Yes. 
I didn't list my seeds dated 2015, if there's something I've mentioned previously that someone is interested in just ask. Honestly, I don't know how much I have in terms of extras (i.e. how many seeds) I tried to guess, but sort of ran out of motivation toward the end and I'm going to just post what I've got typed up.

Thank you Beetles. I sent you a PM.

Sorry everyone -- I won't be able to participate and I won't be around much at all for the next few weeks. Our big, annual charity event is coming up soon and I'm having technical difficulties. I'm the webmaster and somehow our site is getting corrupted, causing everything I do to take 4 times as long as it should. By day's end I'm tearing out my hair, trying to figure out what's causing the issues. Right now, gardening isn't even on my radar. Sad

Good for you for knowing when to say 'no'! BIG hug And thanks for warning us of your absence. I wish you the best with getting the website to work -- and with your event!  (And I'm sure I'll still have seeds to trade several weeks from now.)

Thanks, Beetles. Things are looking up a bit. Maybe I'll be back a little sooner than I feared. Rolling Eyes

Due to my location (Canada), I am opting out. I'm not sure it would be cost effective (postage wise) for me to be involved.
I am thinking the same thing, TD.

Perhaps we could post Canadian located seeds on the Canadian Regional Thread?
That will also eliminate any problem that could occure between countries?

KJ and TD, Sure. A Canadian seed exchange is up to you.

I'm not sure there are enough Canadian members to make a Canadian seed exchange worthwhile. However, I'm not against creating a thread in the Canada Region for a Canadian seed exchange.

Personally, I'm in a "Canada - Seed Exchange - échange de graines" Facebook Group that has 736 members.
