Got the nest today, wow, a lot to go through, I am in heaven, Will try to get it off tomorrow afternoon, have a quiet morning, will let you know when she flies.

Everett, WA(Zone 8a)

Don't you just want to pour all the bags out onto your carpet and roll around in them?

Corey

Menifee, CA(Zone 9a)

i think i took the entire 3 days to look. so much to see, and i had to sit at the computer and look them up to see what a lot of them were. so much fun !!!!!

Beaver Falls, PA(Zone 6a)

One more person then it's my turn! I can't wait!!!

Linda

columbia, TN(Zone 7a)

Oh Corey, You are by far more enthusiastic than I am, roll around on the bags. You have quite the imagination. You did however give me a good laugh, big hugs to you for that. Annette Picture is of my fiance Dave and me.

does he have a brother?

(Anita) Fort Wayne, IN(Zone 6a)

March 1 is looking better and better! What is the prize going to be for guessing the correct date?

Everett, WA(Zone 8a)

Kobwebz,

Thank you!. A good laugh is one of the few pleasures that's non-fattening and carbon-neutral.

I would add "moral and legal", but some of the "humor" from our youths would now be considered in seriously poor taste.

But I was almost serious about rolling around in mounds of seeds!

When I found just the right pine bark product, my first mental image was a sandbox full of it, with ... BZZT ... naked ... CRACKLE BUZZ ... cavorting ...

My email seems to be breaking up. Is DG having a problem with it's server?

Corey

(Anita) Fort Wayne, IN(Zone 6a)

LoL Corey you are too much!

columbia, TN(Zone 7a)

Dave does have 2 brothers, but they are both married. Lots of seeds to package and add to the box this am,may not get it out til tomorrow. Have to see if my daughter comes home to cover the kids for me.

Athens, PA

checking in..... apparently I am next. I haven't been online like I should be, DH and I have been sick for the past 2 weeks - now I think I have an ear infection. I missed time at work, so now I am working like a whirling dervish to try to get caught up.....

I will have seeds that I will be sending on a to one basis as I had seeds that were not dry by the time the robin initially took off.

Stay warm everyone!

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

Gm All
Annette : Has Know reason to roll in seeds when she has a guy to roll with in the garden :)

susie

columbia, TN(Zone 7a)

found lot's of goodies. Met Dave 4 years ago on tomorrow on Cupid.com. You can fall in love in your 50's. He is such a Blessing to me. He didn't have a flower on his property when we met and he is now more obsessed than I am.

columbia, TN(Zone 7a)

The bird has flown the coup. Added about 150 packs of seeds at least 30 varieties, as all that I had contributed early in the game were gone. Have fun Carolyn. Cost $10 to send. confirmation # is 03082690000186256529 weight is 6 lb. 10.60 oz.

Menifee, CA(Zone 9a)

kobwebz-i have no idea what possessed me to ask that question, i apologize. meant it as a compliment but after i hit send i realized it most likely did not sound like one.

columbia, TN(Zone 7a)

I didn't take any offense Sherman.

Menifee, CA(Zone 9a)

thanks, sometimes i regress and forget i am an old granny.

(Anita) Fort Wayne, IN(Zone 6a)

LoL @Sherman too funny

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

"Annette Has Know reason to roll in seeds when she has a guy to roll with in the garden :) " Susie, I sat down to take a coffee break and laughed so hard reading that I choked and spewed.

Happy Birthday, Tiff, our DIRTYGIRL71! May all your blooms come true. LOL!

Oakland, MD

Thank you so much Mary.

Jennifer

Western, WI(Zone 4a)

Going thru my seeds and will post later today or Sunday some time.
Good grief, I didn't realize I had so many seeds!!
Now a question?
DOES ANY ONE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH SEEDS COLLECTED FROM 2009 AND KEPT IN A DARK COOL ROOM?

Please state if you don't and I won't include them, but I have sown seeds that have been from 6 to 10 yrs. old by keeping them in a dk. and cool room. No problem, generally have to find people who will take them off my hands.

The seeds I think will be fine from 2009. I also had seeds that are over 5 year old and I had no problem with those seeds.

Jennifer

New Providence, IA(Zone 5a)

Folks, I am so impressed with this group. I can't believe how "on top of it" you all are. And generous! Have NEVER been in a round robin that moves so quickly and without a hitch. In the past there are always a few "corkers" in the group, and at times, the robins have just disappeared. Susie, you are the best group leader, too.

Western, WI(Zone 4a)

Ok, have spent the morning going thru the seeds and will try and list them. Only from 2009 and 2010. Rest I will start in the greenhouse and later post if they emerge.

1-Helenium red [perennial] [3]
2-Helenium autumnola loys [perennial] [3]
3-Helenium autumnala wynd [perennial [3]]
4-red/orange center marigold [annual] [3]
5-dwarf coreopsis [think perennial] [4]

Breaking for dinner, DH is starving to death!!

Maxine, I would like a small amout of each of the seeds you have listed above.

I do a lot of containers, and would hope to have one or two containers for each ... so I do not think I need that many seeds.

MARY

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

I'm willing to try a few of the HELENIUMS
I Think maryellen can tell you that when I Had a couple RR's Go Missing From another Garden spot & I Have learned since then to get more info & Screne just a little better to get those that are trully into Gardening
& When someone Do not follow guidelines then they are dropped .

but we do have some honest & eager players I Have gotten some great seeds to plants .
from the last 3-4 robins i cannot keep track how many this makes :) But So Far we have not lost any ROBINS .
& Its Thanks to all of you.
hope everyone is haven a great weekend

Western, WI(Zone 4a)

Susie, I have a package of gaillardia and others for you. will just put the packages of the heleniums in and you can take out what you want, ok?

Mary, what I listed above is not for containers. They grow around 2' to 3' tall. I have them mixed in my flower beds as they blossom from Aug. thru frost when their is not much else blooming other than some mums.
Hope this helps you.
going thru my seeds, I will look and post what I think would be good for your containers.

Maxine

Morrisville, PA(Zone 6b)

Maxine, I think this area of my property might be a candidate for HELENIUMS.

Maxine, if possible, may i have some Goat's Beard and some Mars Marigold?

I want the marigold for window box planters on back deck.

And I think the goat's beard would be nice in each corner in the rear of my property.

Morrisville, PA(Zone 6b)

Eeks! Forgot to post picture of rear of property.

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Maxine, I haven't decided whether or not to join the next round, but would be happy to reimburse postage for your...
Pretty Purple Pepper and
Chives

Same goes for anybody else who has extra herb seeds. I'd love to try Goat's Beard too, and other White Perennials that grow well in Zone 7a. The easier, the better.

Western, WI(Zone 4a)

Fruit, will try and send them out the first of this coming week.
