Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Big Bird has taken flight!

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

SORRY Was about to Go out the Drive When UPS was coming up it . so then I got side tracked with a box & then it was already
4;30 PM & BY TIME I would have gotten to town the post office would have been closed . so I Will go early tomorrow :)
back later

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

LOL.....one more night to rest before the long flight.

(Pam) Warren, CT(Zone 5b)

Whoopee!!! It's as good as on its way!

I'm sitting surrounded by seeds. Some are packets from last year I won't be using again, both commercial and from trades, some are newly labelled from this year's harvest, and some are still drying. It's pouring outside which is the only reason I'm in here, but I've finally finished all the sorting I hadn't gotten to before now.

So my collecting is about done for the season. Between the frost and the rain, I don't think there's much out there any more, except for the few still blooming. I 'm leaving in the morning, won't be here again until 10/26. I will check again for Verbena Bonariensis and Salvia Snow Hill, which are still going strong. The salvia in particular has set very few seeds up until now, just keeps flowering like mad. I looked near the bottom of the stem where the pods seemed more brown, but very little is coming out.

Next task: Divvy up the requests and get that organized, then finish packaging the rest. So exciting! I'm near the beginning, should see the robin really soon!

By the way, I'd like to be in the 2nd round. I'm dying to see what everyone adds after me!

Pam

(Pam) Warren, CT(Zone 5b)

Does anyone know what Joe Pye Weed seeds look Locke?! I can't find a picture anywhere, and it's very confusing!

Rockford, MI

I have the chocolate kind- it has little tufts on the end like an aster, but more in small clusters like lettuce. Hope that helps- I can probably post a pic thurs. I work today and tomorrow- dark when I leave, dark when I get home:)

Concord, NH

whahoooooooooooooooooooooooo

(Pam) Warren, CT(Zone 5b)

Oooooh!!, I saw things Ike that, but didn't think they were the seeds. Thanks!

Saginaw, MI

Hiddey Hey it's on it's way!!!! Can't wait--even though the wait will be a loooonnnnng one for me(next to last on the list)! And being my first time participating in something like this , the anticipation will drive me crazy with wonder as to what I will find when it finally gets here!!! Well about time to get ready to go to "Christmas town" for the day. At least it's not raining any more!! Have a great day all!
Shirley

Somerset, KY(Zone 6b)

Don't worry Shirley, everyone will post when it arrives and tell about all the fun they are having. So you will be even crazier when it arrives at your door. That's what keeps me going everyday. I love being crazy!!

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

GM MY Friends Waiting for the sun to clean off the frost from my windows & Enjoying my morning coffee . I found a few more seeds that I had forgot in the robin so will go reopen the robin for the 3rd time & include them also :) .

so will be leaving here in a hour or so will post when I get back .

MARY it should land maybe tomorrow at your house . :)))
susie

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

OK ROBIN IS In FLIGHT TODAY :))))

GAME TIME START CALCULATIONS ON HOW LONG YOU THINK IT WILL TAKE OUR ROBIN TO MAKE ALL 32 LANDINGS
& MAKE IT BACK HOME POST HERE WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR GUESS READY.

WELL BIG BROTHER IS PUTTING UP MY NEW PATIO ROOF SO BACK LATER

Somerset, KY(Zone 6b)

There is actually 31 on the list. So I figure with shipping days and going thru the box it should be back to deejay in about 124 days. Anyone else got a guess?

Brazoria, TX(Zone 9b)

I am going to guess Feb 11th.



This message was edited Oct 16, 2012 7:35 PM

Elk Horn, KY

Barbourville, KY(Zone 7a)

PAULA_P ----Feb 11th?
PDF--------------Feb 20th

Somerset, KY(Zone 6b)

OK 124 days = Feb. 14th, 2013

(Pam) Warren, CT(Zone 5b)

I'll guess my birthday again, Feb 24.

Elk Horn, KY

I'll guess feb 28th

Rockford, MI

I'll guess march 2

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

Ya'll are gonna think I'm off my rocker, have too much time to think, or quite possibly both.

Here's what I came up with last week while thinking about how long it would take for the Robin to return to its nest.

31 players X 2 days average for Priority Mail X 3 days max for each of us to review the Robin = 186 days (April 20th).
Cut that by 20 days since some of you may be able to hand the box off in person, or keep it less than 3 days = 166 days (March 31st).
By excluding our inability to mail on the 6 Holidays and 24 Sundays between now and March 31st = 136 days (March 1st).

After all that -- > Friday, March 1st is my guess.


Corey, I hope you're watching and got a kick out of my primitive formulas...lol






(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

JUST REMEMBER Holidays & sundays NO MAIL

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

well i tried to lay back & Just couldn't so here i'am & Fruity you have been very busy :) & would have made a great MATH TEACHER :)
You Might want to add a day or two for SNOW Days Just in case someone Might get snowed in for a day or two :)

I think i will go bake some PUMPKIN Bars Not sure why I feel so wide awake so off to play in the kitchen :)
keep calculating

Upper Marlboro, MD(Zone 6b)

bigtrot = May 14
Just wait there will be snow storms and ice storms and people making all sorts of excuses for not mailing.........so The Robin lands back home 2 days after Mother's Day on May 14th. I really hope I lose this game :)
Donna

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

So true about increment weather, Donna. Hadn't thought about that or folks being sick or on vacation or .....

I made Pumpkin Pie Bars today, from a Krusteaz boxed mix. Haven't eaten one, but hubs did and said it was tasty. Their Lemon Bars are very good. Sometimes I make them in a muffin tin and add an Orange slice to the middle of each one, nice and tart and aren't ultra sickeningly sweet.


Concord, NH

march 22

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

Arroyo Grande, CA(Zone 9a)

February 28th.

Kiowa, CO(Zone 5b)

Just curious...is there a prize for the correct guess? LOL.....Maybe we should find something for a prize......Think I'll guess April 7, guess I should find a calender to see what day that is....oh ya it's my bday....lol but is still my guess for now....

Got a special package from Shirley (sbish5)...thankyou so very much....

I just took pix of Eupatorium joicus which is varigated Joe Pye weed, which blooms white, so far are 48", though this is the first year for bloom and considering the drought will have to see next year true height, and yes the seeds do in fact have a tuft on them.. Will try to download pix when I can...also when the box gets to me I will be including.




Arroyo Grande, CA(Zone 9a)

How about you get the box back, LOL.

Upper Marlboro, MD(Zone 6b)

My guess was May 14th and that's a Tuesday :) Please prove me wrong about this date!
