Here Are the New Guidelines For this robin

First Just let me say These new guidelines Should have been in place years ago
before It got out of hand . Robins & swaps has gotten to laxed . many are sending good seeds only to
receive old or grubby looking packs in return . it is time to be more alert as to what is happening .
we need to take back out standards of good traders & report the ones who do not share in
the honest way of swapping .

with your help we can make safer trading out there for ourself & others . we just have to make them
more aware of what we exspect in our trades & if it is not met they will get a NEG FEEDBACK .

SOME OF THESE ARE WHAT YOU ALL WANT TO SEE & WE WILL ALL TAKE PART .

#1 NO SEED PODS OR HEADS OR CHAFF PLEASE CLEAN THE SEEDS AS BEST YOU CAN
BEFORE PACKING THEM .

#2 USE ZIP BAGGIES SO OTHERS CAN SEE THE SEEDS THEY ARE GETTING .
PRINT OR TYPE INFO & INSERT OR TAPE TO OUT SIDE. & PUT YOUR
DG USERSNAME ON THE PKS - IF THEY ARE FROM TRADES PLEASE SAY SO .

#3 IF YOU HAVE MADE UP ANY HAND MADE ENVIES & THEY ARE NEAT CLEAN & WE CAN READ WHAT IS IN THE
PK THIS IS FINE TO USE AS LONG AS THEY ARE NOT TAPPED OR STAPLED ON ALL 4 SIDE .

#4 YOU HAVE 2-3 DAYS TO GO THROUGHT THE ROBIN I ASK ONLY THAT YOU WILL PLEASE
POST WHEN IT LANDS & POST CONF# WHEN YOU MAIL IT ON .

#5 PLEASE REPLACE WITH SAME AMOUNT YOU TAKE OUT & THEN SHARE WHAT EVER EXTRA YOU HAVE FOR OTHERS
TO TRY IN THEIR GARDENS .

# 6 ANYONE WHO MIGHT HAVE COMPUTER PROBLE MY PHONE # WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE ROBIN SO
YOU CAN CALL ME . & I WILL POST FOR YOU .

This should not be a stressed out Robin for anyone I do these for The Fun of Them & Help you Find Nice Seeds
While Relaxing with Coffee or Drink of Choice in your own Kitchen :) While the Kids & Hubby or wives & Kids Are out for the day :)
or maybe they might like to help choose .

I will be posting the Route later today If you Decide you do not want to follow these GUIDELINES Please let me know
Today . Will Remove you no Questions Asked

ONE MORE THING YOU NEED TO ACKNOWLEDGE YOU ARE WATCHING FOR THE ROBIN WHEN YOUR NAME
IS NEXT IN LINE OR WE WILL BY PASS YOU . OR IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE OUT OF TOWN PLEASE LET US KNOW.
YOU ARE NOT TO KEEP THE ROBIN ANY LONGER THEN 3 DAYS .
JUST BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHERS WAITING .


Thank you
susie

OHMY GOODNESS 180 packs of seeds... Ok maybe after it arrives I need to head to parts unknown... and keep them all...rofl

Hay I have some seeds that I don't have labeled like from some hostas, would they be something I could put in???? I've got plenty of seeds to share just wondering if they would be ones that anyone is interested in?

All of my seeds are perennial seeds.

The squirrels love taking my tags off of plants especially in this one area of the yard, so these hostas I gave up on with names.

Meadowyck, Do you have a pic of the hostas or see something
similar online to go in the baggie with the no id?
Just a suggestion.

Susie, I don't think the robin will reach me by the 21st but it will be close.
I will be out of town at a business seminar from the 21st until the 24th.
If it starts cutting to close may I request it go to the next on the list & then
back to me?

cris I'm sure you will be back I would say you should have it about the week of the April 15-21st Guessing .

Here is what i wrote on the seed forum

I forgot to add my sticky lables for any onewho needed but sure you can find some thing to write on :))) if you need.
there is something reaally wrong with the new Conf# for they are not reading & I saw her scan them while i was there . so not sure what is going on .

but maybe it might arrive today Sure hope you enjoy it .

Just read the info & It will EXPLAIN To all you NEWBIES How This Type Of Robin Works You will See If We can Fine Good Honest Traders The Quanity & Quality Of The Seeds Will be able to get Better .

You Have to admit It is really HEARTBREAKING To COLLECT, CLEAN, & Package Our Seeds for trade Just TO Send to one person they sort & Send you back Someone else's Seeds Packed so tight you can't get into them .

NO MORE & you will have fun at your own table sorting throught & Picking your own :)
JUST Take Care & Don't LET YOUR DOGS : CATS OR KIDS Get to Them PLEASE .

Hey you all have a great day .

I have hosta seeds but I can't remember which ones came from which plants.

So if you want I will put some in a bag for you with the pictures of the ones they came from. At least it is my understanding that the seeds don't come true to the parent? I'm new to hostas and first time collecting the seeds from them.

So if that is ok, let me know and I'll put then in for you.

Maybe Put A Rubber tub out by your mail box for them to put the box inside . are you at work ?
maybe you can have a neighbor keep watch for it ??? . I cannot believe any mail carrier would leave a package out in the rain . I Sure Hope that is not the case .

appreciate if everyone in the Eastern RR had a wish list.

I checked a name or two & nothing was listed. I'd like to be able to
put at least 1 wish pkg in the RR for all participating but have no idea
what some would like.

I added another bag for my extra seeds that I put in, in hopes that the rest of the folks and our hostess will find something sweet that they would like to try. Several of the tree seeds were from a class that I went to in October at Holden Arb. here in northern Ohio and the trees are incredible. Hope yall find something from me that ya like and if ya do I would love to hear what it was.

Got the box out to Linda today, so hopefully the post office will get it there by Saturday.

This was so much fun to come home after a terrible day at the drs and just get to sit in the floor with them all spread out looking a reading and then looking up the ones I didn't know.

Enjoy yall. Susie I can't thank you enough for allowing me to take part in this, first time I ever did anything like this with seeds...

I'm still looking forward to sorting through the box. Was there someone who follows me interested in "black" and otherwise dark plants? I have seeds from Black Jetbead and seeds collected from a black-flowered (unnamed) pansy. I will put your name on them if you let me know - I thought I noticed these on someone's want list.

This is getting exciting again.
As for the HOSTAS...any seeds are just fine. I fell in love with them for some reason and am willing to try any.

Ok, as for a wish list from me? If it grows from a seed I like it! was that easy or what? LOL

Truthfully, I live on 40 acres and it is a blank canvas...the entire place needs a complete overhaul. I have stuff growing in places that should not have anything because as buildings fell, people removed the debris and left the plants...so there is a row of tiger lilies growing in the middle of the far back yard...daffodils in a ring around nothing...Japanese lanterns along three (looks like old) paving stones...and all kinds of silly things like that...I discover new stuff every year I am here...So basically rescuing what I can and starting fresh with new beds in a lot of places. Any and all seeds would be appreciated here!

I could have spent more time going through the box, and "playing seeds" as my kids call it, but it is much easier for me to get to the post office on a Saturday than a weekday. My post office is open until 3pm, so going through it quickly and getting it back on it's way on the same day, seemed best. It is really a nice quality robin.

If you decide to continue this, and do a second round, or switch boxes, and let us see what the other route is getting, please count me in.

I'm so anxious to get this box that I couldn't even remember how to spell anxious. Had to look it up. geez. Won't be on much today have to get the little pen ready for some chicks that will be here today. Have to clean it out from the last ones and put new cardboard and bedding in it. Then set up the water and feed. Oh, just remembered, I have to run to the feed store to get starter feed I forgot I'm out. Dang I was hoping not to have to go anywhere today. At least not until tonight when I go bowling.

If I get the box today I will take the time to stop in and let you know.

I hope I get the box today, but usually after it leaves KC it takes another 2 days to get to me. From KC it will go to Camdenton or down to Springfield and then to me. It just depends on how hard the people work in the the other PO's before I get anything.

I just hope the mail gets here before I go get my mamogram. I'll have something to look forward to after the squishing of my body parts.

Packages did not make it out today. First I forgot the address label.
I Had taken it out of the baggie, but left it right on top when I sealed the box. Opened the box & took it out.

Then the darn guinea hens wouldn't move from in back of my car.
My DH was no help to get rid of them. He was laughing too hard
from watching them peck at my bumper as I tried to back up.

So FOTV's & the RR box won't get out til tomorrow.

IGROWINPA - LINDA ... The DL seed you sent me ... started sprouting within 10 days with out doing the cold thing ... even your hybrid one!! I just planted them in seed soil and covered them and they are growing like mad ... a few of them are already 10" tall ... I'm impressed with your seeds!! =D

And I know I recieved DL seeds from one other person I forgot exactly who ... but they are working also ...

So, If there are any DL seeds ... I would love to find some in the box ... =D I'm on a DL seed frenzy ... ok addiction ...lol ... I don't care if they don't flower for a few year ... I'm just haveing sooo much fun with them =D

Gerry, I actually looked at the PO site to see where it was before
I saw that you had already checked. I'm a bit concerned for the
peony.

Should have put one on the package for Susan as I've done
nothing but worry about it as well.

Please let me know when you get them.

OK folks... got the package late this afternoon. Cris, thanks so much for the peony, it's been planted already. Wish it luck as I'm just a beginner with peonys, though I have done my homework.

Been through the package already... if I could, I'd probably pick out 100+ packs, but doubt I'd have enough to replace. Prioritizing will be hard.

I will be working both Friday AND Saturday but still hope to send out to FOTV/Susan by Saturday afternoon. So if you don't hear from me for a while, you'll know why!

East robin is on it's way to FOTV/Susan. Didn't check tracking, but the clerk said it will probably arrive Tuesday, possibly even Monday.

I had a field day with all the seed packs. Took out 40 packs, personally received 12 packs from members, and took a small amount of seeds out of few other packs. Meanwhile I put in 67 packets... and a pack of baggies. The box is getting heavier.

Was hoping to take inventory, but didn't have time with my 2:00 deadline. Btw, after I got home I saw the marking pen still on my desk. Sorry, I forgot to put it back in the box. Thanks to all who included seeds for me. Wish I had had a chance to check the want lists of those downstream, it was my first robin and I learned a lot. Will be better prepared next time around. Didn't help I had the robin for less then 2 days, but I was glad to move it along quickly. Have fun Susan, and special thanks to Susie for putting this all together... it was a great experience.

Susie... Just a question, only because I'm the curious type. Now I know you've done these robins before, and as it seems, the robins get bigger and bigger as they move along the list of participants, when the robins finally get back to you what happens to all the seed packs? I would think the quantity of packets have probably doubled from the time the robin started? And please correct me if I'm wrong in this assessment. Thanks... Gerry

Susan,
Did you ever get the peony? Altho in a regular package I paid for
it to be sent Priority. I'm really concerned - it should have arrived
the day Gerry got his box as the distance is approximately the same.
Please let me know !

Yes I did Cris, thank you so much! I planted the peony the day it arrived, very healthy and is doing well. I really thought I had thanked you before now and am sorry if I hadn't. Will also reimburse you for postage.

Ta da! The East Robin arrived this morning as I was headed to class. Haven't had a chance to dive in yet but it'll be fun going through it before I put him back in flight to you on Wednesday, taj12. Lordy there's a lot of seeds!

Thanks for the reserved you sent me too, Susie!

I would love to see the east robin.

Which ever is easier for you, two boxes, or one big one.

Just an observation, though, and not saying it would happen with the folks here, but in my experience, big robins tend to go missing more often than smaller ones. I had it happen with a robin I was hosting a couple of years ago her on DG.

Deb is right , I have had 2 robins fall off the earth & I Have to say My Gut hurt for days to think there are People
that Just has to ruin it for others .

the only reason I did 2 this time was the fact of so many wanting in on it .

However we do have to work out a few more bugs for some of the personal feedback I have received so far is
packing is better but not much detail on the packs such as . sun /or shade ,zones , & some are not putting their names on the packs ,

if the seeds are not from your garden's or what you have bought then , you should put from trade if you do not have info on them . but at lease
put your usersname on the packs . you put in for others to try .

so lets try to better in that area . I want to really try to make these robins worth playing in ,
also be sure that your subscription is paid up or the robin will be passing you by , if I cannot reach you
to let you know your up next .

many of you say you have never done one & I hope you will find these fun & Help make them better for all .
well I hope I have not made enemies but when i get feed back to help improve I will post it & I would like your input .

LOL Cris, it wasn't until after I ran errands this morning did I have a chance to take a dive. You know how you go on a long trip and at the end of the day all you can see is the road when you close your eyes? Well that's how I feel tonight except I'm seeing seeds.

So you're next, taj12. The Birdie begins his flight to you in the morning and you should receive it Thursday. Good for you too, with your schedule you'll have the week-end to go through it.

24 OUT: 10 flowers, 13 herbs/veggies and 1 vine.
38 IN: 22 flowers, 8 veggies and 8 vines.
+ bsgardens envy of reserved seeds.
The Robin weighed 2 pounds, 9.4 ounces when I received it and is leaving at 2 pounds 12.0 ounces using the same box and packing materials.

I do have to commend you, Susie, for such a well-organized Robin and a job well done. This was my 3rd round so I'll pass next time to give others an opportunity to enjoy it and try a few seeds on their 'wants' or just find something new they never heard of or thought about trying.

A big Thank You to everyone who shared seeds with me!

Susie,
I put all the seed info inside the baggies but none had my
name on them :( I also put in seed I had received in trade
& marked as such but again no name. I'll know better the
next time around.

Some seed I received in trades are not viable in my
area so put them in for the southern folks.

And I do want to repeat how much fun it was and so
delighted with the goodies in the RR.

if you can email her that would be a help just to let her know that it is at the PO . & Ask her to check .

I use the tag you had with the post off box on it and the tracking number is on it. It should leave the main office tonight or tomorrow. We have to use a branch because the main one is another 20 miles on in. But they are real good about getting boxes shipped on time. I hope it gets there if it comes back I will dmail you and get the next address or just send it to the next one in the box. I'd better get off our winds are up again, stained 25 to 35 miles an hour with gust up to 65 and out here in the open its more like 45 to 50 with gust up to 75 and it messes up all the satlight stuff.

I had to have a system to go through all of the seeds and the different bags ...
I got 2 of my own bagies for each big bag ... one of I defintly want and the maybe's ad went through them and did that with all the different category bags then went back and went through them again and figured out what I definitly wanted.

Thank you everyone who over loaded the packets to be "pinched" to be shared. I think that's how there ended up being soo may extra packs of seeds. lol

Christine you are going to need a week & a shovel to go through all of the seeds ... when it left here there were around 425 packs of seeds! lol

Have fun ... And thank you everyone for every thing!!! I would love to do the WEST Swap also ... Will get my subscription updated here soon ... I definitly want in on this one =D

Guess the westbound RR had more mileage to it cause the eastbound had one
more person. Glad I wasn't the only one to be WAY off on the arrival estimates.

Boy was it fun tho :) .I was kind of anxious doing it for the first time. Susie, you
couldn't have made it easier to participate even for us newbies - again thank you

The lupine seeds need to be soaked overnight. When you take them out of the water nick the outer shell with a needle or nail clippers, but make sure its just the tough outer shell. Then you can plant them and all should pop up with in a day or two! :)

Hi.. I just got back from the Iowa Round Up and still no package.. when I checked the confirmation number, it shows that it was routed to Wichita, KS.. I'm hazarding a guess that to send it from one end of Burlington to another, it has to go to KS first??

I'm really sorry about this..as soon as I get it, I'll send it on..
