You're welcome, Susie. Love those wine colored Sunflowers.

We had a couple of unexpected visitors today, Cedar Waxwings in our Cherry Tree. We saw several last Summer flocking with Robins, but usually only see them picking the cherries clean in January or February. Today's sighting was quite a treat!

Susie, #4 is a Datura. See if you think yours is possibly this one: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/14/

The same nursery I just mentioned on the August plant trade thread that now has Mums for $6.49 had a huge Alocasia "Stingray" when I was there several weeks ago. It had several 2-3" diameter trunks and was at least 6' tall. The price tag marked 'sold' also read $105! It was the first time I'd ever seen one in the flesh and it was Awesome!

Speaking of Daturas...did that one I sent you (d. metaloides) make it Susie? I'll also be collecting a few seed pods as they ripen.

I was saving the seed from these lilies, pods were just strting to ripen and pooof... gone. Drat!!!!!! Those cruddy four legged thingies are just about to end up as a venison steak!!!!! Lol. That'ld show them! Now that the g.kids are back in school I'll have time to get some things done, hope, hope hope!

So how does this trade work, we specify what we want from what's listed and you send them to us? And how much you wanting on postage, just a few questions...lol. And if noone wants all that we sent to you? And should we lable those that can only be started indoors under lights? Got more but will delve out a few at a time. Kathy

pix 2&3 a few goodies I'll be including...

Susie...I may have to join y'all. I will have to check my seed stash and see what is ready. Not sure yet.

Kathy ~ Do you use deer repellant?? I could not garden without it, but, yes, sometimes they eat anyway when they are hungry enough. (They LOVE mums!!)
I am glad my hubby finally put in a good fence for our veggie garden. In there I have corn, zucchini, cantaloupe, beans, peas, 3 apple trees, many tomatoes, and a nectarine seedling growing from the compost pile. The ornamental beds are the "Dark Side Garden", White Flower Border", and the "Cottage Garden Bed", which has mainly pinks, purples and blues with a couple of pale yellow and some red snaps, here and there that I grew from seed. They sure took a long time to grow from winter sowing. Over a year...but mostly flowers were from Bluestone Perennials... Phlox, Asters, 1 Peony, 1 Tree Peony, Ageratum, Veronica, Agastache...this is a fairly new bed and it took a long time to prepare as I have rotten clay soil, and still it needs a good mulching every year. All of my beds require it. I think I need to cut back, but how??? However, it does not look lush. I must think of what else to do in there to make it look better. I hope to be getting a watering system installed, I think that will help, as I water them all from the hose.

Here are the deer in winter trying to survive on frozen ceonothus or manzanita...

I alternate between Liquid Fence and PlantSkyyd. I used to just use Liquid Fence, but one year. PlantSkyyd was on sale and they posted the price very low, which was corrected the following day, but they did honor the posted price. I think I got that at Burpee or Park Seed. I usually get LF at my local nursery, so no shipping fee.

Evening Everyone,

The link, which will hopefully work, is to an album of Zinnias I'm growing and will be saving mixed 'free for all' seeds. You're first on the list, Susie, since you asked for them earlier. There will be plenty to go around!

http://community.webshots.com/album/583317392ArpkYZ

Also am collecting Cosmos seeds from these two light and dark orange ones so far (Bright Lights?) and will save others like Purity (white) and pretty pink ones as they ripen.

A few Canna seeds have ripened and been collected. These are the first ones and I'll be vigilant collecting seeds since there won't be many to go around. Looking at pods on others that were also new this year, most just contain dust.

Miss Oklahoma (pink striped with yellow)
Tropical Sunrise (soft peachy pink to light orange)
Eureka -- http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/37294/

WW Kathy, I keep forgetting to let you know seed pods collected from Hibiscus moscheutos 'Midnight Marvel' were sterile :(
The leaves though are starting to turn fiery orange with our coolish nights.

That reminds me, should any of you have Hardy Hibiscus seeds, I'd love to try a few. Color doesn't matter.

Thank you, Susie! I'd be happy trying any of those Hibiscus. My Cannas are about done too, just waiting for one or two more late cultivars to bloom.

Do any of you want Agastache seeds? So far I've collected seeds from 'Golden Jubilee' which is easy to ID with it's bright chartreuse green leaves and is also one of the first plants to emerge in early Spring, and another that is either 'Blue Fortune' or 'Blue Licorice'. I smelled the leaves and really think it's 'Blue Fortune'.

Thanks to you, Kathy, I clipped the Nepeta cataria (Catnip) plant today you sent me in April or May and have an abundance of seed heads. It's planted next to one of my stone walkways and sprawled over it in a short time, growing like a weed...lol. Was it Steph or somebody else who commented it readily self-seeds? I beat it to that stage...maybe.

What about Eryngium zabelii 'Big Blue' (Sea Holly) seeds? What an unusual perennial hardy in Zone 5-9 that I wanted so long and finally ordered it from Bluestone last year. It shines in late Spring / early Summer and the blooms look like a cloud of Blue thistles. I've collected seeds for any of who you'd like to try them. Beware though, every inch of this plant is prickly: http://www.bluestoneperennials.com/ERBI.html

While I'm thinking about it, I've also collected Shasta Daisy seed heads. Now the challenge begins actually finding the seeds. Any advice how to?

Fruity -- I've love any seeds from you that grow in zone 5...i don't even mind they prickly ones...thinking of that I have rosa rugosa rose hips...are those seeds? Should I collect those?

Shasta daisy -- I didn't think those gave off seeds...thought they grew by underground runners...maybe they are like other daisy...dry out the head and the yellow middle turns brown and that's where the fine thin seeds are...??

Your flowers are so beautiful! LOVE them!

Susie,
I will be getting a box off to you in the near future. I'll enclose some spring bulbs, you can save them for the bulb swap or share them now, I do not care, your choice. The individual seed packets are all marked with the DG name that requested them. I've added about 30 extras for you to divvy up. My printer just ran out of colored ink so no more pictures for awhile.

Susie I'd like to join in but not sure how this works. I was thinking the box starts out with some seeds and then travels around with each member taking some and then replacing with some of their own.
But I'm reading here that people are sending you their seeds. So it sounds more like we send the seeds to you and you put them in the box labeled with the requester's name?

Vitex is a hardy plant.
Our vitex are bush sized but I have seen other vitex that are 6'-8' tall--and they are gorgeous when in full bloom.
I will save some seeds and include them in the robin.

I have some Fish peppers that will be ready to harvest. Caveat : They maybe crossed with Black Pearl. The fish peppers have white and green foliage and varigated striped fruit that go from green, white, yellow, brown stripes to a bright reddish orange.
They can be eaten but are super hot. The Black Pearl can be eaten and they are super hot also. I can include some packets of them if anyone is interested. Both taste good if you like hot.

I would love some! How long does it take to get to a shrub size? Or tree size, from seed?

OK, then how long does it take to bloom, after starting from seed? Will they bloom the second or third year?

LaMarion, would you please earmark a few of your Money Plant seeds for me? Haven't tried them for a number of years and loved their papery blooms in dried arrangements. Are we talking about the same plant? Lunaria Annua 'Money Plant'? Also, do you have a pic of your "very large marigold plant that blooms in Sept" or soon will have one?

I've saved seeds from Marigold "Vanilla"
http://www.burpee.com/flowers/marigolds/marigold-french-vanilla-hybrid-prod000265.html
from plants I bought locally in the Spring. You and anyone else are welcome to try these or any other seeds I have to offer. The list I'm maintaining is up the page on August 22nd.

Kerrie, I'm curious how you prepare those hot, hot peppers, or if you're brave enough to eat them raw?!

Give my Congrats to Jim, Susie, and tell him I said he's a keeper!

evelyn, I haven't grown vitex from seed yet but from what I have heard from other gardeners and read on other gardening sites, seeds need to be stratified and then can be planted in the fall. I am going to start seeds in pots, keep them in the greenhouse this winter and hopefully have plants for next spring.

Not sure how long it takes to grow large enough to bloom in other growing zones so I am going to take an uneducated guess and say first year. Our vitex was cut to the ground and grew out to bush size and bloomed the following year.

Coneflower, dark purple Scabiosa, Nigella, Pampas Plume Celosia, pink Nicotiana, red Coreopsis, Moon Flower, Mixed Tall Morning Glory, various Sunflowers, Dwarf Sweet Peas, Purple Coneflower, Shasta Daisy, etc.

Is there a maximum or minimum amount of seed packets to send?

Thanks, Paula!

I will check it out when I get the chance. I will probably just put some in a pot and leave them out on the back porch for the winter. (That is my version of winter sowing...) I have no green house or even a cold frame. I may build one this fall...maybe...LOL!!

According to Thompson and Morgan, it is possible to grow Ligularia dentata 'Othello' from seeds, but germination under just right circumstances can take up to 6 months! For anyone patient enough, which doesn't include me, here's the link:

If so, i will potentially have lots of those too. Joepye weed, american beautyberry (aka mulberry), hosta, some asters yellow free cone flower, popsicle lily, lambs ear...that is where i will stop for now.

all my cones (that have seed so far) are purple. I only had a few plants that didnt get hit with AY this year and those were the ones I got in trade or purchased. :/
I did just harvest white four o'clock seeds. It is my first year with them - had no idea if I would get seeds or not. They were scattered all over in the grass...I was picking through the grass to find more so they wouldnt sprout in the walkway next year. Excited to see them though. There are 3 types of hosta with seeds so far. And I also saw that my wine & roses wisteria is still blooming...WEIRD!

I am always interested in getting seeds. I will need veggie seeds for next spring. I have a few flower seeds from 2 years ago and thought I would just mix them together and throw them in the flower bed and see what grows. I have 1/2 acre here and am planning on getting rid of most of the grass, which is nothing but weeds anyway. My sister wants grass, but I'm the one that has to take care of it and mow it, so it is going to be my way this time!! The grass is gone!

Red Cloud is the Spiderwort, I love it for it's bright cheerful blooms. It reblooms over and over all summer. The bulbs are daffodil and narcissus that my sister and I thinned out this year. A few of the names I remember, King Alfred, (yellow) Salome, (white with peach centers)
Ice Follies, (white with pale yellow centers). Sorry but I haven't seen them bloom in 15 years as we have been in Fl at the time they bloom. I have opened up a new checking account so you can send the postage at any time.

MIDWFWIFE : Sorry I Don't Know your 1st name But as for the amount of seeds If I Have 1000's of one type to share I Put them into a ZIPLOCK Sandwish Baggie for all to take WHAT They can USE & Ask THAT This Group will be Fair & Not TAKE More then they can Use JUST To TRADE OFF For other Seeds IN OTHER GROUPS .

I DO NOT WANT ANY SEEDS OLDER THEN 2011 From Trades or Your gardens Many will Not take any & Then I;m Stuck with old seeds at end of Robin that I cannot Use When I START The Robin with all fresh Seeds from my gardens & What many Members send me fresh from their Gardens .

I Just want everyone to Please add fresh Clean seeds In Ziplock Baggies there will be some in the robin I start the robin with 100 New bags & Your welcome to use what you need. In My poppy seeds I Have 1/4 teas in each baggie .

if you only have just a few seeds of one type of seeds add what you can & It is 1st come But I Trust My Players Not to take out 2-3 pks of any type ONE Pk is plenty for i try to put a pk per player .

I May start the Robin in OCT Just depends on My seed Harvest .

as I Tell ev1 I Don't care that you do not have any seeds AS Long as you have the Postage to mail to the next NEST ON THE LIST
You can also Look for seeds that go on sale in your local store Buy Up a few & add to the Robin is ok also .

Waving Hi, Mellen!

midwestfarmwife, anything goes from annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, veggies and herbs.

This Robin is going to have quite a flight path. What a great bunch of participants and growing. It's great seeing old friends...you know I mean that in the nicest way...and look forward to making new ones.

Susie, are we to keep the Robin three days as we have in the past?

Usually when the robin arrives Ev1 Gets to dig right into it & has it back in the air the NEXT day & They have fun going through it .
So I Think the three days will be plenty of time if Robin is Mailed on MONDAY -WEDS- Or By SAT then ev1 should have plenty of time but if not that is ok also we are flexible but If someone is going to be gone when the robin is going to land I Do HOPE THEY Will let us KNOW ahead of time to we can pass them till they return home then we can send back to them..

I Will still ask ev1 to please post when the robin lands & When they get it back in the air for we all love tracking the robin .
& with all these Players there will be lead way as always :) well my friends I promised my neighbor I would come see her so you all have a great eve . back in the morning

Thanks for letting me know how this works. Do we put our name on the packs we include, or is it anonymous? I hope you start out with a large box - I'm beginning to think I'm a seed hoarder! Oh well, we could have worse habits. I picked our first watermelon of the season. This Congo watermelon was super sweet! The little Blueberry and Jaune Flamme Tomatoes from my Netherlands trade have been good too. I have been shocked at the Lemon Cucumber vine! I bet it has produced at least 100 cucumbers from baseball to softball size, very mild flavor. I'm growing peanuts for the 1st time - black ones! I love unusual veg. and flower seeds. Even our animals here are different - hens that lay blue eggs and spotted sheep with 4 horns.

I spin the wool when time permits (not for quite awhile), and made a few scarves on my knitting machine and the socks on the machine too. Wish I knew how to do it by hand, but there is only so much time in the day - bought an antique sock knitting machine but haven't spent much time with it. I've heard of people using wool for mulch. I would hate to get it wound around a garden tiller!

DJ -- to clarify in my mind...we send you all our seeds...labeled...and you begin the round robin by sending out the box to one of us...we take what we will use...and send it to the next person on the list within a day or so...correct? Or do we each start with our own box...send it out to one person and they send it forward...??? Thanks for helping me grasp it...!

I'm sending lots of veggie seeds as well as flower seeds too. If anyone has the space, try the Jumbo Pink Banana Squash. You might need a log splitter to cut these monsters though - or a man with a large cutting knife. I cut mine into sections, put in large roasting pans and baked until tender in the over, scooped it out into a large bowl and chilled overnight in the fridge. Then, I measured 2 C., just enough to fit into a pt. freezer bag - the right amount for 2 loaves of pumpkin (squash) bread. It freezes great, a beautiful, bright orange color. Everyone who eats it (sometimes I throw in some raisins and/or pecans) thinks it's the best they have tasted! My largest Banana Squash gave me enough for 32 loaves!

Hey Deb!

Veggies all sound great, folks, and will wait for the Robin unless packs are earmarked for me. Either way is fine.

farmwife, Reviews for that interesting Jumbo Pink Banana Squash at Baker Creek are outstanding as well: http://rareseeds.com/jumbo-pink-banana-squash.html
Wonder if you store these like Butternuts in a cool freeze-free place? Marti, that's exactly how we eat roasted butternuts and also love making creamy savory roasted soup.

Don't know Anita, what I harvested looked like dust. pfft On an up note, when I pruned mine back in early Spring, 4-5 cuttings out of about 20 in total neglect rooted and traded them at our RU.

Does anybody have experience saving seeds from Perovskia atriplicifolia, Russian Sage? My plant is at the edge of a walkway and just adore the scent.

Hi, all.
Sounds like a lot of neat seeds everyone has for trading :) Very tempted to sign up, but I think I better not. Not sure where I'm planting all the seeds I currently have :)
I do have some cerinthe seeds that I collected this spring to share if anyone is interested. The flowers aren't scented, but the leaves have an interesting texture (smooth on one side and rough on the other). I'll try to post a picture of the cerinthe this evening when my husband can help me with it. And since I won't be in the robin, if there's interest, I'll send my seeds to Susie so she can include them in the box that will be traveling to everyone :)
I'm also waiting to harvest my amaryllis belladonna seeds. These seeds look more like tiny bulbs than seeds. I've read they will take several years to get big enough to flower. (I planted some last year. Figured I'd see how they do.) But I'm not sure if the seeds will be ripe in time to include in this robin. And I'm not sure if this is the best place to include them or if I should post to the bulbs list about these. But I'll include a picture of my amaryllis belladonna when I post the picture of the cerinthe. My amaryllis belladonna are a hybrid (most of the flowers are pink with a yellow center), so I'm not sure what color of flowers the seeds will produce. But they have a lovely fragrance, and it will be fun to see what grows!

I'll tuck plenty of Banana Squash seeds into the robin's nest and include my Grandma's Pumpkin Bread recipe and one for iced Pumpkin cookies. I don't care for the frozen squash for pies. I also have New England Sugar Pie Pumpkin seeds that are nice small pumpkins for eating and froze lots of bags of them also. I ordered from Baker Creek Heirloom seeds. Can't wait to try Marina di Chioggia squash next yr. Another source I love is Sand Hill Preservation - didn't get to try the Japanese Striped Corn I bought from them but it's just as well since we are having a severe drought like we did in 1988. I can include a few if anybody wants them.

Lots of radish varieties in my stash, Henderson's Black Seeded Simpson lettuce which came up voluntarily in my flowerbed - no idea how it got there! It's a nice leaf lettuce for sandwiches.

Several tomato varieties to share; winter sowing in April (zone 6) is the only way to go for me! No damping off and completely hardy - try it if you haven't.

I can spare a few Black Seeded Long Bean seeds. They are typically not boiled, but great for stir-fry with yellow Crookneck Squash, Marconi Sweet Peppers, and whatever other veggies might be on hand. I hope to increase my Lipstick red sweet pepper seeds next yr. They are the sweetest I've ever tasted!

I'll share my Congo watermelon seeds. Sweet as sugar! I finally learned how to tell when watermelons are prime for picking. Look for a slight yellow tint on the bottom (sometimes) even on top. The tendril nearest the stem should be dry. Winter sow these seeds also.

I hope this robin has a BIG nest!!!

Wow! All of you have a lot of good seeds for us. I have given most of my fresh seeds to Corey for the New Bees, in which now Robin will be in charge again. It really was too much for him, as I thought it would be for anyone who works full time plus and then some. So I will save a few things from what I am growing and I may have some seeds that are not too old to put into the stash. The main thing is that most of my seeds are more than 2 years old. I know, I must sow them...and what am I doing here anyway??

Many great traders
EVELYN Yes I Started OUT On GW Many years ago & held many swaps over there , but I found more HONEST & Trusted Players Here on this site . Don't get me wrong I Still have & Keep in touch with many Great Members over On GW YET . & will always stay in touch with them :) but I Find if i have probles with trades here you can take it to the adm & they help so it won't happen again.

I do ask that the seeds are as clean as you can get them some chafe is ok , Please PRINT CLEARLY Name & Info As you Know it.
I've Noticed that Many last spring did NOT Put their Usersname also some of the packs had Markers used & they were smeared so ya cannot read the name . so if maybe you can get some white sticker tags from a $1 store to use on the baggies to write on that would help. or just cut up some Note paper put info inside with the seeds .

Oh, right... Sorry, Anita, lapse of memory! Let's try this again...
midwestfarmwife, the recipes you said you would be including in the box sound delicious. Would you mind dmailing the recipes to me once you know which recipes will be in the robin? Oh, and I meant to add that those pink banana squash sound enormous! I can't quite imagine a squash that big!
Susie, according to the seed packet, the cerinthe is a hardy annual that grows to 2 to 2.5 feet tall. The packet says the Latin name is "cerinthe major atropurpurea." Also, FYI, it does seem to seed readily. I had lots of fun collecting the large seeds from my plants at home, though I know I missed some. We also grew some at the Blind Center last fall and again this spring. Those from the spring were all volunteers. If you don't want volunteers, you'll want to deadhead them before they make seeds. Hope this info helps!

Sorry czimmerman. You are the closest to Mittsy's route.
Marti if you come down to Barbourville wait until the week of October 8-13 when the Daniel Boone Festival is going on. It is hokey and homey and the food is good old comfort food. My Aunt Fay's chicken and dumplings are the best I have ever tasted and she always cooks for her church booth for the festival. When I was living elsewhere I always tried to make it here for that. The leaves should be coloring up nicely then, too. I have been feeling a bit peaked, but I hope to be back to normal by then so that I can enjoy the quilt and art shows, which are my favorite parts even though I don't quilt and I am not artistic. Go figure.

Gosh, this thread goes so quickly like a bouncing ball.

Cris, I honestly don't remember asking but would be interested.

Chris, heirloom tomato seeds please. Which Agastache? If you don't have A. Golden Jubilee, I have plenty of freshly harvested seeds for you and anyone else.

Chicken and dumplings, oh yum! Sounds like you could use a bowl or two about now, Alana. The Tithonia rotundifolia plants are well above my head, still reaching for the sky.

If you collect seeds from your HONEYCOMB butterfly bush, please save a few for me. That luscious peachy bloom is just beautiful! Same for the Fucshia one.

Yes, can you believe how tall the plants are? Alana shared the seeds in one of our Robins, maybe two years ago, and I didn't plant them til this past June!

Oh, such pretty flowers! I have never seen a peach colored butterfly bush before. Are they easy to start from seed?

For the tomato lovers out there, I have Blueberry (larger than a cherry), Cherokee Purple, Siletz, Rutgers, Jaune Flamme, Lemon Oxheart, German Pink Tree, Strawberry, Riesentraube Cherry, and probably a few others.

Chicken and dumplings sounds good - wish those hens would start laying again so I could make dumplings too!

Saw a lovely Agastache at Lowe's that is pink and apricot - love them all! I have lots of Tall Morning Glory, some Star of Yelta Morning Glory, Heavenly Blue Morning Glory, and Moonflowers to tuck in the nest. I gathered seeds from the Mock Orange shrub today. Anyone ever start them from seed? It looks like the Hazelnut shrub has nuts this year, but still not ripe. The big old Shagbark Hickory nut doesn't have as many due to the severe drought throughout the midwest. Sure do miss my Grandma's Hickory Nut Cake.

Susie - What is that black flower? The leaves do remind me of salvia...and if it smells icky -- it probably is! I'd love some of those seeds or plants! So beautiful -- is it blooming now? My purple salvia has bloomed from spring until now -- constant flowers -- amazing and it's still going strong!

Thanks for the "how to" on the nest...got it now! Sounds super cool to pass it along...one question -- is it better to have seeds in clear tiny ziplock seed bags or paper envelopes...? Is it just a preference thing? I'll make sure I label everything...just wanted to make sure I'm packaging everything the right way!

Good morning everyone!.

Susie, it's nickname is Mexican Sunflower. Each plant is an individual stalk. It just looks like a vine up there because I probably sowed the seeds too closely together. Really do hope they'll bloom before frost and be able to collect seeds.

I would be glad to include extras for marti who needs flowers...gosh we just can't have that, lol...

I want some of Fruity's red zinnias, they look to be on the blue side of the color wheel. Yummmmm!!!!!

And since everyone is claiming seeds...am I allowed to claim toward the last of the robin so I get to make sure I get goodies. I'd be happy to send my box to the first to make sure theres more goodies to choose from when it starts its rounds? Sorry, am a newbie to round robins. Sure am glad you accept last years seeds, that will increase the amount of variety I can send as blooms this year were not what they could have been. And should we not offer seed of plants that require specific treatment (ie. light and indoors temps?). Would it be better to send in large baggies and include the small bags in the box so people can get their pinch?

For those not sure about baggies, Hobby Lobby has packs of 100 bags (2x3") for $1.99. And Micheal's probably also has, they are sold for jewerly findings. And from my experience if using a marker SHARPIE fine point, permanent, is just that, gotta make sure you let it dry tho or could smear. I've been using in the garden for years, tho they can begin fading after a few years, from my experience all the others seem to smear when touched.

Pix Centaurea montana Amethyst in Snow, will also include the straight blue
Pix Valariana officinalis
Pix Ratibida columnifera, North American wildflower, native to my garden
Pix Lupinus russel hybrids, mine died out over the winter but colllected seed from a friends which is both this purple and a dark red
Pix Centranthus ruber Jupiter's Beard, have some, will try to get more from my daughter's plants ( is the pink)

I collected baptista seed yesterday - purple flowers is all I know. They were at my aunts house and she doesnt save seed - so I snatched them :) Zinnia too - multi :)
I am chomping at the bit wanting to collect my asiatic lily seed - even though I know they are not ready yet. Gamecock iris too. That seed pod is HUGE! My first one!

I would recommend not writing directly on the plastic baggie with the sharpie. Last year - by the time the robin flew into my nest - the writing was so difficult to read because it rubs off. Write on an address label, a piece of tape or something and stick it on the baggie - or put a piece of paper in the baggie with the seed with the name.

I went to pick elderberries this weekend and I missed them :( looks like the birds got to them before I could. No jam or pies this year. I did find a huge area of raspberry bushes along the railroad tracks that I will have to scope out next year. Going to check with the neighbors to see if I can pick their apples too. Trees are changing colors, cool nights - mid 50░s, warm days - should hit high 80░s this week. Lots of yard work to get ready for winter. Lots of plants to bring in - which means I need to find room for them.

minnesippi, I missed out on elderberries this yr also. I had bi-lateral breast lumpectomies on June 6th and than drove from Calif to Ky at the same time developing an abcess in one of my incision lines which I had to check into the hospital the day after I arrived in KY for surgery to clean it out. Than I was on Dr.'s orders not to get out in the garden or climb around in the bushes til the large hole in my breast healed over. I can not get going on my gardening, but all the elderberries are gone. DARN!! I wanted elderberry jelly for my toast. But I did buy 2 gallons of Blackberries and made jam.

OMGosh - what an ordeal! I didnt have all that going on and missed it...the birds were in a hurry this year - got them early. I will have to try and remember next year that the week before school starts is when I have to get out there.
I am already having dreams of going to the orchard and getting apples and pumpkins. Baking in my dreams...how bad is that?!?!hmmm...pumpkin butter?!!? I know I have already been told i WILL be making my pumpkin cheesecake again this year. It was an experiment on my part. The family has been talking about it all year in anticipation..guess I done good :)

Did someone say a peach-colored butterfly bush?? If the deer will leave it alone long enough for me to grow it, I will put it into my "Peach-of-a-garden", for my "peach-of-a-husband"...yes that is the formal name for my garden with peach-colored flowers. It is has been a challenge to find peach-colored flowers for it. Now since I re-did that bed, I took out the gold and yellow flowers from it, so only peach now. I had a small geranium (pelargonium), that I grow from seed, and though I did spray it with deer-repellant, they ate it just leaving a stub. I think I will dig it out and put it into a pot and see if any leaves grow back. I will put in in my nursery area in my fenced garden space.

Oh, BTW, I picked up some 'Black Watchman' hollyhock seeds so I won't be needing any. When I open the packet, I will see if there are enough for a trade...most likely there will be enough for me and 2 or 3 more people. I cannot use all the seeds that I have. I will be posting my list soon.

Havr a dood day everyone! ^_^

Everyone -- the seeds sound so great! I just collected ligularia seeds...and some tiger lily seeds...and I even got some love dart (catanche) seeds from a plant from WWK this past spring...I'll be sure to look for the 2x3 zip bags...use labels...and permanent marker or I'll print them off the computer if I can figure that out! I'll be sure to have my name, my DG name, and the seed name! :)

I'm getting sensory overload just reading about all these seeds! I would love to have one of everything! Marti, are you looking for any certain veggie seeds? Sorry to hear about your surgery. May you have many happy gardening days ahead. Susie, I'll make sure you get Banana Squash seeds - give 'em plenty of room!

Has anyone seen the colored stickers from WalMart? They come in packs with green, pink, yellow, and orange stickers. I like to use those on my little plastic bags for labeling. I think that I have become 'eccentric', because now I try to use the color of sticker to match the color of the flower!

I have lots of extra 2011 flower and vegetable packets that I didn't get used this year (overbought, as usual). Should I include them, or do you only want ones that we have harvested ourselves? If it's O.K. to send them, do you want them left in the packets? If someone doesn't want an entire packet, they could take what they want and tape it to send on. I have them stored in Mylar bags inside plastic containers with lids. Most have been in the fridge when space permits.

I got carried away with the little cabbage seeds, not thinking about how big they would eventually become. I gave many plants away and now have LOTS of cabbages (small) to use - making scalloped cabbage now - should get ambitious and make cole slaw.

HI, Fruity!!!

WisdomKathy, being at the end of the line does not assure you a large selection of seeds. It can actually be quite 'picked over' by then.

Not sure what seeds I will have. I had a lot from last year as I had planned to wintersow. But, I didn't get any wintersowing done so I still have seeds to share. :P

Yes, Susie, summer has been busy. 2 trips to the cabin in WI and digging and dividing hostas even in the 100 degree heat. One of my sisters lives close by now, and she was excited to help. I dug and divided and she repotted. It was fun doing it that way.

Marti ~ What kind of veggie seeds are you looking for? I have tomatoes, lettuce, bacon (just kidding!!)...
zucchini, cantaloupe, beans, peas, black-eye peas. I will list the varieties later as my seed box is put away right now. Then I will make a proper list.

If all goes well, I will be collecting hardy hibiscus (huge white flowers with a blush to reddish center), Heliopsis 'Summer Sun', Lychnis coronaria (rose campion), Catananche caerula (Blue cupid's Dart) and some hardy asters. I have already collected seeds from some lupines...light pink, medium rose pink and cherry red.

More to follow...

Susie,

I have Larkspur seeds for you and will keep red, white, and blue in mind - know I have Blue Boy Bachelor's Buttons. If you like vines,I have Heavenly Blue Morning Glory. I plan on putting a variety of seed in for every one I take out, so hopefully the next person won't find the box depleted. I also vote for state to state to save on postage. I see Ky., Mi, and In. close to me in Ohio. When will we know the Robin's flight path?

Evening all Yes we are going to go state to state I Just had to get a raise out of you all :)) I Just Done up RUDBECKIA :DENVER DAISY
There is enough seeds for everyone to take out 1/4-1/2 teas way More seeds then you would ever Need . & Most of my Baggies should be like that & as long as someone don't get greedy & take the whole Baggie Everyone should get to try them.

In the pass I have had a few greedy Players But I keep hoping it won;t happen again But I Have no control after it leaves here but i think many can tell you we all try to make it fun & everyone will fine lots of goodies to try.

well i have a big day tomorrow Planting Plants & Potting up Plants :) So Good Nite all .

I'm overwhelmed by all the seeds everyone has, and very excited to see a couple people have larkspur, I will be looking for that. I'm not sure how the reservation thing works, won't there be enough seeds for everyone to take 10 or 20 of what they want, since we all probably dont want the same thing? And how will the pre-reserved seeds be sent? Just in the general box with the words "reserved for..." placed on it? Since were all paying $10+ it seems like there needs to be some effort to be sure there are mostly unspoken for seeds in this box. It sounds like I'm going to be paying postage for seeds I can't have?

I'll post a list once I see what I have.

scbuttercup,
I'm not a fan of the "reserved" seeds idea for the reasons you mention and others, but I have done this swap twice in the past and when you get the box you will see that there are not really that many reserved seeds-certainly not enough to displace the general offerings. I don't post a list of what I will be putting in the box but I do look at people's trade lists and if I have something on a wish list I put it in an envelope with their name on it.
We were promised cool weather last weekend and it really did not materialize, but it looks like this weekend may be a perfect one. I hope to collect seeds then.

My 1st Round Robin too, and this is going to be FUN! Now I don't have to feel so guilty about being a 'seed hoarder' because they'll be put to good use - and it will leave more room in the fridge for food!

Marti, you'll want to purchase your seed potatoes next spring when it's time to plant. If you haven't tried sweet potatoes, buy some! We got 25 plants this yr. for a reasonable price, and they have done great even in this horrible drought. I know when we dig them up (use potato fork), we'll have so many that I'll have to use my father's apple crates and store them in the barn! Some get really huge.

Any reserved seeds don't have to take up much space since only small amounts are needed to get starts going of each variety. Most people are limited on space to plant anyway.

I think the 'More the Merrier' on sign-ups.

Extra veggie seeds in my stash:

Broccoli di Cicco, Vates Non-Heading Collards, Green Lucullus Swiss Chard, Henderson's Black Seeded Simpson Lettuce, several kinds of hot peppers, several kinds of zucchini, several kinds of radishes, Early Prolific Straightneck Squash (yellow) Clemson Spineless Okra (some for Marti to pickle - how about a recipe for that?), White Lisbon Bunching Onion, Garlic Chives, Cat Grass (Oats),
Cucuzzi (edible gourd with white blooms and HUGE vines that will climb 50' up a tree!), Tigger Melon, Indian Corn (from last yr. - germination will decrease some as in all corn and beans), Genovese Basil,
Long Island Mammoth Dill, several kinds of Cucumbers including Lemon (very prolific!), Snowball x Cauliflower, Parsley, Marconi Sweet Pepper, Green Striped Cushaw, Connecticut Field Pumpkin, New England Sugar Pie Pumpkin, Early Hanover Honeydew Melon, can spare a trade or two of Taiwan Black Seeded Long Bean, Blue Crown Squash, Detroit Dark Red Beet, Basil that's either Cinnamon or Purple Ruffles, and maybe a few surprises.

Has anyone else had their beans cross? Two years ago my Jacob's Cattle Beans crossed with the Pink Beans, and some Jumbo Pink Banana Squash crossed with New England Sugar Pie Pumpkin. The result was small and shaped like the Pie Pumpkin but the salmon color of the Banana Squash. I called it a Squmpkin. I plan on experimenting with the seed next yr. to see what grows!

I can't remember who posted white hardy hibiscus and cherry red lupine but will you please make an envie for me ?

I will have tons of gaillardia, liatris and blackberry lilies.

For those who won't be listing here what all they're putting in the box, may I ask a favor? I'm blind, so when the box gets to me, I'll need to have my husband look through the box to find the things I want. To help with this process, if you wouldn't mind dmailing me a note to let me know what you've added, then I can be thinking about what to have him look for, and your items will still be a surprise for everyone else.
To give you an idea of things I may be looking for: I do my gardening in containers, some of which are quite large. At this point, I'm focusing on flowers, especially scented ones, though there are a few exceptions (like the cerinthe that I grow) :)
Is it all right if I include seed packs of mine that have already been opened if I put them in a ziplock so no seeds spill out? I have several that I may decide to just take out a few seeds to try and could then share the rest.
This is also my first round robin :)

For everyone offering veggie seeds for me, Thank you very much. I need get the veggie and herb seeds so that I can see how many containers I need to get for my garden. I'm also collecting cardboard for composting and killing weeds.

Happy Birthday, risingcreek! "May all your blooms come true." That's my corny wish for all birthday peeps and it really does come from the heart. Your screen name reminds me of a phrase my dear ol' Southern Dad used to say when he had the best intentions, "Good Lord willing and the crick don't rise..."

As in the past, I'll reserve packs for those requesting particular seeds and write their DG names on individual envelopes. Depending on the flight path, if someone falls after me, envies will go in the Robin and don't mind mailing seeds to those ahead of me. I've participated several times and individual envies have taken up very little space.

This is the only place I know where you can take what seeds you want or need, within reason, and replace them with an equal amount to go down the line. Think of it this way, postage for a Medium Flat Rate box with a delivery confirmation number is around $12. Where can you go locally or online and purchase a minimum of 10 packs of seeds that economically? The variety everyone contributes to the Robin is awesome, rivaling a kid in a candy store.

Evelyn, would you reserve a few of your hardy Hibiscus seeds for me please?

You have such a tempting assortment of seeds to share, farmwife, I don't know where to begin.

Michelle -- I'll happily send you a dmail of what I'm putting in the box! Not sure if you'll be ahead of me or not but I can always snail mail you the seed packets! :)

I'm all for the "more the merrier..." and if we need a large flat rate...that's ok...it's still cheaper than buying packets at the store!

I have a running list of the seeds I'm collecting at the top of this thread...and I've put names next the seeds people want so I'll mark packets for those that I know so far!

It was in a pot and didn't get any special attention while I was gone so I'm sure there won't be any seeds. I'm getting really antsy now, can't wait to see the garden again on Sunday.

Hi, all.
Susie, I typically use what's called a braille notetaker (somewhere between a PDA and laptop in its capabilities) to read the forums. It has both speech and braille output, but I type in the commands and what I want to write. Occasionally, I use our Mac with Apple's VoiceOver screen reader which speaks the information on the screen (and I can attach my braille notetaker to use its braille display if I want as well), but my preference is my braille notetaker.
By the way, it looks like AliKat32 is listed twice in your list of participants.

FruitoftheVine, that purple Yarrow is pretty! If you have enough, I'd like to give it a try. I have a reddish one, and I'll share those seeds. Today I collected Mimosa tree seeds from a neighbor. She has lots of little ones coming up voluntarily that she said I could have. I got some seeds from a Honeysuckle in her back yard also - don't know what kind. She had tons of Hollyhock seeds and said they were single red and pink (maybe some other colors too). I stuffed my pockets full and will have some to tuck in the Robin's nest. I'd like to go back with a pair of scissors and snip all of them! Her pear trees were loaded - got some of those too but haven't tasted them yet since they aren't quite ripe. I wonder if the seeds would grow? I think she said they are Bartlett.

You have me down as PGF... At least I think you mean me... But I'm PFG. And I'm very excited about being in this years robin. Last year was really, really great. I put in a lot, but also took out many new things to try. Needless to say, some did better than others, but I ended up with several additions that I loved. Im really looking forward to getting back to my garden to see how everything looks after all this time.

I'm still collecting seeds in the garden. And I'm starting to bag flowers as the birds aren't leaving much to collect, LOL.
I have fresh California poppies, pink rain lillies, gladiolus "passos", creeping gloxinia, canna patens, and a few others like sunflowers and cosmos if the birds allow me a few. I noticed someone wanted red hot poker . . . um may have to check those I've never collected seed from them before but they get plenty of pollinating visitors.

Wow! What a great list! We all should find some seeds we do not have, but want. Isn't it fun to share in your success with creating new flowers and veggies from little specks, sometimes dust.

I have been down and my husband went to get me some yogurt that I have to have with taking 2 different antibiotics. So I may lurk for a while.

Hi, all.
Harvested the first of my amaryllis belladonna seeds this week. And there's a bunch more to come. Don't see anything about how best to store these... They say these should be planted fresh. Last year, I did hold them for a little so I could plant them all at once, and they did grow, but I don't know if I should really hold these for the robin. But if anyone is interested in trying some, let me know and we can work something out as they become available. Remember, they will need several years of growing before they'll flower, but if you want to try an experiment... :)

Let me know if I missed any of you who requested Purple Yarrow seeds. The list I'm maintaining is near the top of the page on August 22nd. Depending on how you look at the blooms, some appear purple and others are purple / pinkish. I've cinched a gauze bag over a bloom cluster and hope that's the right way to capture the seeds pods while they dry. This is my first time trying to collect them and would appreciate any help! Am I on the right track?

Also I noticed today seed heads on Coreopsis 'Red Shift' and "Full Moon" are ripening and will add them to my haves.

Somebody else, besides you who have already spoken for Orange Cosmos seeds, needs to raise your hand! I have half a quart Ziploc bag full of clean seeds that are a mix of Klondike and "Bright Lights". They're still blooming and am plucking seeds daily.

Two more colors of Cosmos are blooming and have begun to save seeds. One is a bright Fuchsia and the other one is a girly Pink.

Get better soon Evelyn! Has anyone ever wondered what would happen if we had to come up with our own natural remedies? I have a few Horehound seeds to plant next year and found a recipe online for Horehound cough drops which our mother gave us as children. I think they were around in my Grandmother's day. Does anyone grow Chamomile for tea? There is lots of Peppermint and Lemon Balm in my flower beds, and Catnip grows wild here. Echinacea is used in tea, but I wouldn't have a clue how to use it. I bought a book on herbs and medicinal plants but haven't had a chance to read it yet. I would probably poison all of us if I tried to brew anything! I started some Goji berry plants from seed this year and planted them in my new raised herb bed. They are still very small but should grow well next year with more rain. I was disappointed to see that my Chinese Yams had disappeared. Maybe I'll try them again sometime.

GardenQuail - I hate to even share this information with you but I read somewhere it takes 7 years for Amaryllis Belladonna to bloom from seed. I seeded a ton of them last year and was really disappointed when I found this out. Sorry.

I've had a lousy day. I didn't get enough sleep and then when I went out into the yard I noticed the deer had eaten the tops off of like a dozen of my larger succulents (in pots). They literally ate the tops off of several aloes, some crassulas, even a large gasteria. So I had to go to the hardware store and get deer spray, I used the whole bottle, as the little devils have also completely consumed my morning glories and hollyhocks and the bunnies like the shasta daisies and rudbeckia. ARRRRGGGG.

Marti - I'm in California, we're allowed to own guns just not shoot anything with them (not that I could shoot a deer, I'm a Californian, LOL).
Deejay - You know I would have sworn by Irish Spring too until the deer ate my hollyhocks, I had tied bags of the stuff right to the stalks.
They must be really hungry, maybe a better solution is watering out in the pasture so the grass comes up.
