Wanting to find Squash seeds. I have elderly neighbors who do not have enough food to get to the end of the month. I want to grow some extras for them. When I ask them what they like they both said any squash is a good squash. I have Cocozelle Zucchini, Dark Green Zucchini and Crockneck Squash. So anything other than that would be good. I am also looking for some Yellow, gold, orange or bi-color tomatoes. I do not have seeds for those this year. I do have reds started and going well. Also looking for "Yummy" Bell Pepper, a small yellow great tasting pepper. I have not been able to find the plants or seeds this year.
I have seeds I found cleaning out a place all dated 12/10 if anyone has an interest. I cannot guarantee they grow, the Zucchini I have sprouted is from these seeds.

My neighbors are 80 years old. He worked in the Navy more than 30 years and several other jobs up to 70 years old. The last sunday of last month...they had rice and carrots for dinner, nothing else. This is America and it makes me crazy they do not have enough food. I will trade seeds or Sase so I can grow things they like and fill in their diets more.
Thank you looking, I hope we can work together. I do not need large numbers of seeds.
check my trade page...I have a BUNCH of 2010 commercial Burpee seed packages that was donated to my garden club and they've gleened all they wanted from them and left me with the others. I keep them in original pkgs,in ziplock baggies,in a shoebox in my seed frig. I've been using them since they were given to me in '10...started some of the herbs late Feb. and so far everything has sprouted.
I have a space that is about 20 ft by 30 ft to use for squash. I have never grown alot of squash for some reason, but am motivated now. I had no idea there were so many kinds. I will try any seeds that are available. I have had good luck with older seeds so that is fine. LMK what ya'all are thinking.
Peggy, I looked at your list and you have the spagetti squash, I remember June telling me she loves those. Did I have some you want or could I send you SASE? I only saw that kind of squash on there.
I have several different kinds of squash, just not very many seeds of any one kind, so I'll go thru them all and just send you a few seeds from a few different kinds, if that will work. I'll go thru my seed stash and see what else I might find too! All I have for mater seeds are reds though, so can't help much with that one. I'll let you know what I find!
I have several seeds of these varieties of winter squash... I'd gladly do SASE for you on them if you would like. These all are good producers. We always have plenty to share with our community. They are good keepers under the right conditions. Can be stored in a cool basement, or closet for awhile... or can be cooked up & frozen, also I have simply cut it up.. packaged it & frozen it without cooking it first. Very versatile. I feed my family with this throughout the winter. Very sweet of you to be thinking of your neighbors, let me know if something interests you ;-)
edited to add --> these are all varieties of winter squash
Blue Hubbard (Large)
Jumbo Pink Banana
Sweet Dumpling (small single portions)
Yes Bigred, just yesterday. The post office changed the routes in my area and I have a different mailperson every day. A lot of stuff seems to be coming in late.
Going to plant some this weekend...Thank you so much Bigred...do I owe you some postage or anything?
Glad to hear it. I've been having packages go missing here too. Last week I got a cc statement for Jan.,looked like it had been in a ditch.Luckily I pay my bills on line.
No postage needed...glad to share.
I collected beefsteak tomato seeds last year and have more than enough to share. Nothing needed in return just let me know the address. If beefsteak is not what you need I also have kelloggs breakfast, and mandarian cross tomato. Or I can just send you some of all. I also have some black krim on the way from another trade.
I also have more than I need of winter squash burpees butternut seeds.
If you are still in need of more just let me know. My mom is the queen of seeds and trades and collects all year round. I am sure we can come up with more if needed. I also have more veggie seeds that you are welcome to. Just check my have list or dmail me back. I have not gotten everything listed.
