Post #9325992

I will be placing my annual order from Baker Creek and I thought maybe folks would like to go in together on orders. I often have SO many seeds leftover but, since these are heirlooms, I can seed save so I don't need the rest in the packet. Rather than seed trading one type at a time, and paying postage on every one of those trades, I thought maybe I could find others who want to split packets from the beginning! I'll be happy to re-package the seeds and get them to everyone. Wanna try?

A. Let's start out by saying that a half-packet will be half the price. If it turns out that some of the packets can be divided in smaller portions than half, we'll adjust from there.
B. Order will go in on December 1st so that everyone can have their seeds before the holidays. I'll probably buy into shares of other seeds here to give to my family members over the holidays!
C. How to participate: List what items you want, include the item number, and whether you want a full packet, half-packet, or (if practical) a quarter-packet. If you want more than one full packet, just note that too.
D. If items are listed as Out of Stock do not worry! The 2013 seed stocks are being dried now, and will be ready soon. Go ahead and list them!

The current order (updated):

I would split
Lettuce: LT 148 Outredgeous and
Snow & Snap Peas: SN 105 Oregon Sugar Pod II

I'l have to look at my Baker Creek catalogf to see what else. BTW, when doing this kind of split, the postage between you and I is often more than the cost of the seeds! I'll be happy to pay the postage fo0r you to send them to me.

(I would also send you a few Snow Peas to try out. I have a yellow Indian heirloom that is beautiful, but was not very sweet in my yard. 6-7 feet tall vines with bright yellow pods and pretty purple flowers.

I also have a few Carouby de Maussane Snow Pea pods if you would like to try them (I didn 't test them yet).




Golden Sweet Snow Pea Pod
OP 67 days
heirloom from India
6' vines need support
sow 1" deep 1-2" apart in early spring
two-tone purple blossoms lemon-yellow pods
best picked small
peas have nutty flavor
Pinetree #269 or Baker Creek #SN104 packed for 2011

Carouby de Maussane Snow Pea
65 Days
sweet & tender
Carouby de Maussane
Snow Pea
sow 1: deep in early spring
2-3' vines 3-4" pods
Pinetree #268 packed for 2011

Thanks Rick. If you are willing to trade those seeds, I'll just cover the postage to send you your shares. Let me know if you find anything else you'd like!

Thanks, and I'll let you know.

Since the Furst Class Package rate (bubble mailers) went up to $1.95 for the first three ounces , I like to put as much into everyu trade mailer as makes any sense at all.

If you find anything you're in terested in in my Have lists, let me know and I'll check on how muc h of that I have left. I have TONS of Asian greens that are Brassicas - Bok Choy, Chinese cabbage Napa, Chinese cabbage Michihili, Tatsoi, Komatsuna, Mizuna, Gai Lan, lots of very-cold-hardy Italian Heirloom Leaf Broccoli ('Spigariello Liscia' or Broccolo Spigariello) , and some mustard greens.

Even some flower seeds, especially self-harvested Pacific Giant Delpihiniums.

For Bok Choy varieties, see:
http://cubits.org/ellasgarden/db/hogwildseedswap/view/95465/

For Chinese cabbage, Tatsoi, Komatsuna, Mizuna, Gai Lan, herbs etc, see:

Here's what I thought of ordering and offering to split - or at leastg, offering to plit the two big pkts. I would keep for myself all of the $2 pkt, 200 seeds of 'Large Leaf Tong Ho' = Shungiku = Garland Chrysanthemum.

Extra Dwarf Pak Choy # OR130-C - 1 ounce of seed $7
dark green, wrinkled leaves with thick, white petioles and can be used whole to make amazing salads and stir-fries! Very tender and delicious! pick when 2" tall"


'Sugar Ann' Snap Peas #SN107-F ½ pound $5.50
An early, edible-pod pea ideal for small gardens. Its short, bushy vines do not need support, and it produces about 10 days earlier than other snap peas. Delicious pods are a joy sauteed, fresh or steamed. An AAS winner from 1984. Heirloom.

Large Leaf Tong Ho. Also Known as Shungiku or Garland Chrysanthemum. OR131 200 seed pkt $2
This variety produces large, smooth leaves that add tremendous flavor to stir-fries, soups and salads; great spicy, sweet, aromatic taste. It also produces lovely yellow flowers and is super easy to grow. Popular Chinese heirloom.

Don't worry about the "1/2 pound" pkt. I can pay the postage if you wish. Let's see if anyone wants to split. If not, etxras will go into the "New Bee" stash before I send it back to Robin.

Hi Karen and Lanakile

I would split these. If someone else really wants the Dragon Tongu Beans, that's OK, I'm not desperate to get them.

But if anyone else wants the giant purple-red mustard ((B. juncea)), I would spring for the full ounce of seed and share 1/8 th ounce (around 3.5 grams) for 80 cents. I see estimates of 350-600 seeds per gram, so 1/8 oz might be as many as 1,500 seeds. Yikes! If several people want it, and they pay their own postage, and Lanakila is willing, I'll get the 1 ounce pkt of Japanese Giant Red Mustard and give away 200 seed pkts for free.

Busy_Gardener + RickCorey_WA

Beans: Dragon Tongue Bush Bean (BN126)
40-60 seeds $2.75

Greens: Japanese Giant Red (OR107)
1 ounce $6.50
pkt 200 seeds $2.50

It sounds to m e like there might not be lots more joiners, or splitte4rs.

Do you still want to go forward?

I'm thinking I should just order these myself rather than pay the heavy postage twice:


Extra Dwarf Pak Choy # OR130-C - 1 ounce of seed $7
dark green, wrinkled leaves with thick, white petioles and can be used whole to make amazing salads and stir-fries! Very tender and delicious! pick when 2" tall"


'Sugar Ann' Snap Peas #SN107-F ½ pound $5.50
An early, edible-pod pea ideal for small gardens. Its short, bushy vines do not need support, and it produces about 10 days earlier than other snap peas. Delicious pods are a joy sauteed, fresh or steamed. An AAS winner from 1984. Heirloom.

Large Leaf Tong Ho. Also Known as Shungiku or Garland Chrysanthemum. OR131 200 seed pkt $2
This variety produces large, smooth leaves that add tremendous flavor to stir-fries, soups and salads; great spicy, sweet, aromatic taste. It also produces lovely yellow flowers and is super easy to grow. Popular Chinese heirloom.


Carouby De Maussane SN111 100 seeds $2.75

NEW - 65 days--This time-honored variety produces some of the largest pods we’ve ever seen in snow peas—often reaching 5-6 inches in length! The robust plants vine to 5 feet. The bicolored flowers, borne in pairs, are pink and burgundy, maturing through purple to nearly sky blue,distinctive and pretty enough to merit a spot in the border. The succulent pods are of robust flavor, and vary somewhat from plant to plant, which makes this variety all the more interesting in stir-fries and salads. Originated in Maussane, near Avignon in southern France.

Rick,

Perhaps it would be more practical for you to purchase the bulkier stuff separately.

I added a winter squash to my order, and I also have a packet of Love Lies Bleeding seeds from Seed Savers Exchange at home. I only used a few seeds from it, and I'm not going to use the rest. If you would like me to send it to you, I will.
