I know that seed packets generally have far more seeds than I'd like, so being able to swap some of those out for other varieties would be fun!

General Idea:
A. Everyone lists the seeds that they have available for trade and how many 'shares' they have. For this trade, let's call 6 seeds a 'share'.
B. Anyone who sees a share available that they want would D-mail the owner and ask to reserve the share. The owner updates their list so that their available shares are always up-to-date.
C. At the close of the swap, all seeds are sent to me along with 5 stamps to cover return postage. This way everyone only pays postage once, each direction, rather than for every individual swap. (If you happen to be in on another swap that I'm running, we can certainly figure out how to consolidate the shipping to save money)
D. I will package all of the seeds to be sent to each trader.
E. Only TOMATO (Solanum lycopersicum) and Hot or Sweet PEPPER (Capsicum) seeds for this trade please.

Since we are in prime seed sowing season, the swap will close on March 15.

Can you recommend one of your heirloom tomatoes to use as a slicing tomato? I really prefer the ones that are very fleshy, with little juice or seeds. I call them 'meaty' tomatoes.

Hmmm, thinking about slicing tomatoes. I like larger ones for slicing. 'Meaty' tomatoes remind me of a paste or sauce tomato like Roma, which may not be that great for slicing. You might like Gold Medal since they get big. They do have some seeds, but not overly seedy. Lemon Oxheart are big, but seem to be softer and not as good for slicing, especially if you try to let them get too ripe on the vine. Cherokee Purple is a favorite of mine, and they get big here also. Beefsteak (old reliable), Mortgage Lifter, German Pink Tree, all get large for us. German Red Strawberry is a little smaller in our garden, but seemed to be solid and good for slicing.

Maybe you all are like I am - have lots (and LOTS) of varieties that I haven't had a chance to try yet. I'll look through my tomato packs in the fridge and see what others I can spare in small quantities.
