Quittrack,
    I have garden huckleberry seed for trade.  Can use the moon and star watermelon.


wolfmtn Let's see what we can trade-can use paw paw seed and American Persimmon 2nd year seedlings.


Always looking for new garden berry seeds not in Baker Creek's catalogue. Prefer heirloom and/ or Luther Burbank bred seeds/plants. Do like husk tomato family and relatives.

Great thread

For those of you who have more than one variety of things that like to cross, what steps have you taken to ensure seed purity? 

Veggies/fruits:
Cucumber - pickling, ....a russian variety will look up name
Melon - given to us by a neighbor friend, I'm calling it "francis' melon" produced very sweet fruit in our mountain climate (hot days, cool nights), 90 days
Water melon - Black tail mountain - nice melons, 90- 100 days
*Bok Choi

Herbs:
*Corriander
*Dill - Grandma Einck's
*Fenugreek - nitrogen fixer as well as cooking herb
*Wild Tobacco - a couple years old, I didn't get them to sprout last year but found out I didn't sow them right (they want to be on the surface - do not bury in any way)  I'll send a large sample as they stay viable for awhile.  It looks rather like mullen as an adult.  Once you get it started it will self seed. 

Flowers:
*Buckwheat - cover crop variety from Peaceful Valley - bees love the flowers, also edible grain for humans and chickens
Marigold - blood red
Yarrow - wild type from land, not very large, but tough and drought tolerant
*Poppy - lots of these seeds
*Sunflower - "Seneca" lots of these
Chrysanthemum - edible greens and flowers
Flax, fiber "arriane" - beautiful blue flowers

And other stuff:
Yew Tree- collected on my land land, 5 seeds, requires cold stratification, will only give these to experienced gardeners (difficult to sprout)

Corn - Painted Mountain, short season, doesn't mind the cool nights

Jerusalem Artichokes....we'll see how many the moles allow us to have when it thaws.  I dug some the other day and a few had chew marks.  Might have to wait until our patch gets larger and can withstand the below ground munching. 

Oats, Black - beautiful taller variety
Barley, hulless - don't know the variety, got the seed from a guy who is doing a GRAIN CSA (how cool is that?) on the coast near Arcata California.  Grew really well even in places where it didn't get a lot of water.  We planted in the spring and summer and both made grain before fall. 

The things with a star I have tons of, can send seeds without a trade.  The rest of the things I have more limited quantities of and would like to trade something of "equal value" for them.

Personally I either use space separation (per Seed to Seed) time separation (plant and flower at different times) or bloom isolation and polination (I bag my corn and tomatoes to keep from cross-pollination).

If people are interested in scion wood for fruit trees, cuttings of grapes, figs, or pomegranates, or European Chestnut and Walnut seeds, email me in the fall.  Seriously, when it comes to fruit trees and grapes, just ask.  I have access to a wide variety of things. 

If anyone has scion wood of umeboshi plum (Prunus mume please, not some pretender)  I would love to get my hands on some.
