Susie, we are not close.

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

I see that OBLIQUA and I are geographically near to each other. Perhaps we can meet rather than mail? I am happy to do so either way, though! :-) -Kel

Ocean Springs, MS

Oh, Robin, my yard is full of worms when you fly my way! LOL

Don't see robins here like I did as a child! Wonder why?

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

Good day everyone again very warm & sunny but not for Long going to dip back to freezing by the weekend so I have been
revamping a couple beds :) & going to winter sow some of my seeds in them lots of room to start them :)

So Far I Have about 6 -7 type of Columbines , 4 type of FoxGloves , the wire cages you see are for the 3 Type of APIOS I Have started to grow they are a Potato of sorts & The vines are very Pretty Also :) .

ok a lady friend from the Garden club Dropped off allot of sees from her Gardens so I Need to go through them if I find I have enough to start another Robin I can start it to go from West-south-east-& back home .

WOULD Anyone like in on it I can maybe Find some more seeds around the gardens if you like & Have it out maybe
sat - Monday but I Need to know who might like to go through another box .
so anyone can sign up for it & IT will go to the west 1st.

That sounds like fun, but I think this will be enough for now for me, perhaps if not enough interest for another Robin now, they could be saved for starting a Spring event?

I also had an idea for a different kind of Robin. How about we have one for outdated seeds? I have a bunch of old seed packets, some dated some not, for all kinds of oddities. Everyone in the Robin would understand the seeds may or may not sprout, but it could be a lot of fun, and could take a few from the packet to try.I bet many of you have old packets of interesting things.

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

Marym
I Don't Mind older seeds as LONG AS THEY ARE NOTED :)
as so. & in Plastic Baggies so Others can see what they are
getting .

I have had Good & Bad Luck with old seeds . When I 1st started a seed robin way back 6-8-yrs back I had Players Putting old seeds taken the fresh & some were Moldy .
& Found GRASS SEED In to Packets Marked as Salvia .

gotta ask Has anyone here grown Asters from seed?
I Have some 3-5 ft high Asters Red-pink-purple really Nice
but didn't know if anyone would like to try them or not.

also I have 4 types of Grasses, the last one pic 4 is an Elephant Grass 15Ft + Tall . The others are only 4-6 Ft

I actually traded for a coupl e asters this year and was going toWS
Susie are yours tall or short?

I LUV tell grasses but just don't have the room

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

I have 4 types of asters that are 3-5 ft tall 2 that is about 2-3 ft tall
& then i have a few MUMS also Just let me know if you want to try them .

Otway, OH(Zone 6b)

Susie, I would like to try e asters and grasses.

Elk Horn, KY

deejay, i would try some of your asters

Mount Sterling, KY(Zone 6b)

Susie, I would love to try some Asters, too.

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

ok I will get them collected this weekend its a little wet today .
anyone else ? I will just make a small box to send around or can put in the sec Robin for those who are signed up & send direct if your not signed up . LMK

OK NOW : I have been getting request for others who want to sign On Now . My Answer to that is that we cannot sign you on at this time for we have a game of when the robin is going to land back home So it is not fair for the Players who have made their quest's .

HOWEVER : If you want to be in the SECOND ROBIN Then yes you may . Just tell me here you want to join the 2nd robin I will add your name . I want to be fair to everyone .

well off to play in my Paints :)

Ocean Springs, MS

I'd love some of the ornamental grass seeds! Would love some purple rye grass seeds!

I am looking for bush morning glory if anyone has some. Thanks, Julie

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

Julie thought i sent some to you ? with the other Morning glories & Vines . & I think there were 2 pks In the robin & I also Put my pk in there that I was saving for myself DUH Dummy me .
