Thanks to 'Charles Kelm' for your letter....

I wanted everyone to see his very clever packaging and labeling.



I've had a few letters where the seeds we're smooshed a bit, but the corrugated cardboard helps cushion it through the postal service...

Just a tip.

Let's keep this train rollin' along...
I'll have a seed order here this week, so my list will expand a bit...

Cheers !

Hi, Folks... George sent a note about joining in this seed swap. Your "group" seems to be handling seed trading rather well.

I may join in but have to see what I have to share. I do have some Babington's Leek seedlings http://www.permies.com/t/13239/resources-seeds-plants-honey-consulting/Trades and right now I'm more interested in receiving cuttings, pref. rooted, as listed in my post above.

I've successfully traded seeds and plants on Davesgarden.com for about 10 years, yet there's always someone who doesn't follow through on their end of the bargain. To help with that problem, there's been a "rate this trader" system in place for many years.

What may interest me in the future is setting up some sort of an exchange of rooted fruit and tree cuttings, assuming I (and others) can successfully root them. Those plants are pricey at nurseries, and many gardeners throw away potential cuttings when we prune. Of course I'm rather long in the tooth now, so being able to garden in any coming year is not guaranteed!

i am in USDA zone 4 but if its hardy to zone 5 i might be able to make it work
i am using what seeds i get to start a small farm on 2 acres, i can send back extra seeds after the first year or i can pay you for the seeds in the first place, i have found places to buy these seeds online but i figured i would hit this thread up to see if i could possibly find them for cheaper

WANT:

real comfrey - the variety that actually has seeds
yarrow
spaghettie squash
Cheyenne Bush Squash

i am interested in George's butterfly and wildflower mix's

Mustard Seed. Anyone interested in Mustard Seed after they dry? I have collected enough for next year and am getting ready to chop down the remainder. If anyone is interested I'll save them - if not they are going on the 'pile'.

Let me know if you'd like to swap...

This is a great idea! Here are my haves/wants:

Want:
Cuttings of anything that produces fruit, especially gooseberries, blueberries, grapes, goji berries, kiwi
Heirloom winter squash seed (any)
scionwood of most anything in the prunus family (little late for this this year tho)
Fava beans
Citrus cuttings (any kind)

Have:
Cuttings from lots of varieties of currants, already rooted.
Goumi cuttings
Almost any herb seed you can think of (in small quantities though)
Will have tons of Kallard (Kale x Collards) seed shortly. Super hardy stuff, great for cover cropping/attracting bees. Not super tasty.
Also will have tons of mustard seed
Lots of varieties of non-heirloom winter squash (winter squash is the main annual I do)

Can't remember who it was that said they had goji cuttings but I would gladly swap something for some

Katya - I have some heirloom squash I could spare...As well as, fava.

I'm still waiting to hear back from the PM I sent you. I'm interested in a few
of your offerings. Hope by now the Kallards have made seed pods.

Cheers - !

Hi Katya, that was probably me~
i still have lots of those gojis, they're more like full blown plants now than rooted cuttings, i may need to trim down even to ship'
i'd love some rooted currents, someone else sent us some unrooted but i don't think they're taking .
most any fruiting perennials would be wonderful, I'll send you a PM,

I haven't saved any of these, but they grow abundantly around here, so if you want some let me know and I'll save some seed for you:

Common purslane (medium to very large leaf, which is not predictable)
Plantain (the herb, not the banana)
Catnip
Dog violets
Some sort of perennial sweet pea, very pink
Yellow sorrel
Random tree seeds, almost exclusively maple of some variety
Common chives
Snapdragon (not super fancy, but wide color mix and vigorous) perennials here in zone 5b

I'll edit later and post a list of things I'm interested in.

Haven't checked this thread in a while... sorry!
So it looks like the currants are NOT rooted yet. Leafy but no real root systems. Give them until fall...
In fact I will probably just try to ship stuff in fall because it is so hot right now (and only going to get hotter) cuttings/seeds would NOT like it So Matthew, lets wait until fall to swap the Gojis and Currants. By then I could give you cuttings off my currants in the ground too.
Varina- I would be interested in some Purslane.
George- Kallards are still working on thier seed pods. I wish they would hurry up, they are taller than I am and some are growing right in the path!! Would be interested in favas and maybe some heirloom squash in exchange.
Thanks everyone!!
Another offering I just thought of- my apples are growing really well, I will have some scionwood to swap in the fall. Mostly from Wolf River apple (biggest apple variety) and some of Sweet 16 if anyone is interested...

Okay, here's the things I can think of so far:
Garlic - any variety
Shallots - any variety except Sante (which I have)
Other perennial alliums - except Egyptian walking onion and nodding onion (have)
OP/Heirloom tomatoes --------------------------\
OP/Heirloom squash/pumpkins/melons -------}-(Any I haven't already tried, a long list, as we have been trying to find ones that work for our area.)
OP/Heirloom watermelons (short season) --/
Short daylilies
Tiger lilies
Dwarf dark blue/black iris
Very dwarf sunflower, or wild/Maximilian-type sunflower

Seedlings/Rooted cuttings of:
Gooseberries
Possibly currants: (Katya, I'm interested in some of your currants. And will be sending purslane your way.)
Blueberries
Blackberries, raspberries, thimbleberries, salmonberries
Grapes (hardy to zone 5b)

Also:
I think the violets already spat their seeds for the year, so those I would have to save next year.
I forgot, but I also have common mallow around here that I can save for anyone interested.
I have very, very limited quantities of:
OP pumpkin Cinderella/Rouge Vif D'Entempes
OP/Heirloom japanese melon that is now being called Eel River Valley melon (Its a family heirloom, the original strain, not the 'improved' variety offered by Seeds of Change (which has an incorrect history, since the person had to have obtained seed from my great-grandfather when he was selling it around WWII or afterwards).)

On close inspection of the violet patch in my garden, I found a bunch of unspat violet seedpods, which I picked in interests of not having my carrot patch taken over. So, if anyone wants them, they can have them. Some may not be entirely ripe, but others are for sure.
Also should have Egyptian walking onion bulbils in a couple months. (These I prefer a trade for.)
The perennial sweet pea looks pretty much like this one: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-y1rbtEA3AGw/TlGgc5ALN3I/AAAAAAAAIes/A0oi7NapIWo/s400/101_2310.jpg

Anything I've listed, I will send with or without a trade. But I will certainly try to find something to trade if someone has something I want that they are willing to send me. I will also try to keep my lists updated, but feel free to PM me for specifics.

Another want:
Caspian Pink tomato (regular-leafed)

Currently have about a quart of Parisian Market carrot seed, heirloom, short, round and sweet.
Not giving away the whole amount, but anyone who wants a packet, drop me a PM and let me know.
[I'll send them for a SASE or a trade. You can send a SASE even if you don't get an immediate reply on the PM, since I don't always check my mail here, but include a note saying what you're sending it for, please.]

I would like to participate, but I would not be able to list all the seeds I have right now. Ha!

I'll name basics, and no specific varieties:

-borage
-tomatoes
-salsify
-beets
-swiss chard (tons)
-mustard greens (tons)
-asian greens (pac choy, tatsoi)
-asst. lettuce
-sunflowers
-cabbage
-onions (some I can't grow in this zone and would like to pass further North)
-broccoli
-broccoli raab
-cauliflower
-cardoons
-artichokes (apparently these also won't grow here ): sad...so if anyone is in a zone that can grow them, have at it!)
-radishes
-turnips
-mangels
-melons
-squash
-okra

and...others...it'd be better to know what you want and then I'll see if I have it.

I'm looking for Sweet Alyssum seeds. Edible flowers of most sorts (though the heat kills a lot of flowers it seems), odd varieties of lettuce, love some good heirloom tomatoes (especially the non-red ones)

Basically if it's not the store-brand of fruit or veggie, I would like to try and grow it. Zone 9 limits me on certain things, or time of year, but I'll try anything and things that don't work, I'd like to pass along.

Which 9b of the country are you in? I love runner beans - the one time I tried them, though, we got mostly flowers and few beans. Maybe that will change since we are getting bees soon. What other species are you looking for? (I'll dig up in the thread and see if I missed a wishlist)

George,

I sent you an email.

My seed list is terribly long; 9 pages of size 12 font.

I'm in zone 9, so onions that are short day are on my wish list since I have a hard time with alliums so far. I'm also looking for edible flowers - sweet alyssum, black nasturtiums. I'm also all about weird varieties of the standards (carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, etc.) - if it's normally green, but comes in purple, I'll probably opt for the purple variety.

Some of the seeds on my list I only have a few of, so they may not all be available to trade, since this is the list I keep for everything, including ones that I just traded for, but I'll let you know if that's the case with anything you want.

Hello all! I am gardening Organically for the second year now! While I do not yet have seeds to swap,I am hoping to start saving from my harvests this season! That being said , i would love to have any seeds that you all might consider sending me ,as I am trying to grow good organic veggies and fruits to feed ten needy families in my area(as well as my own and my girlfriend's)! Along side that I'm trying to raise awareness about growing your own food in my community! I will be teaching families how to grow their own food ! I am taking this task on as an unemployed regular Joe dude who cannot afford to keep buying everything from the grocerystores (not to mention what they do to our food these days) any thing you can send will be fine ! If you need S.A.S.E. just tell me and i will send them! Thank you so much ! My address ; Charles Keen 4728 River Rd. Wilson,NC 27893

Hi again.

I was just wondering if anyone might want some of what I have, and might have some of what I want.

What I want: horseradish, amaranth, buckwheat, chickweed, cauliflower, broccoli, any cut-and-come-again greens, kale, chard, parsley, celery, lovage, borage, comfrey, lambs' quarters, and anything, including red mulberry and siberian pea shrub, that make chicken forage.
EDIT: also white clover

Right now, the only seed I have that I have in any amount that I know is organic and viable are garlic chives, yellow plum tomatoes and what I know is either Black Plum Tomato or Black Cherry Tomato. What I will be collecting when they drop in the spring are the seeds of the two Dutch Elm Disease-resistant American Elms I have on my property. They are ~150 and ~200 years old, estimating according to diameter at breast measurements as compared to similar-era American Elms grown in the Great Lakes States, so this is a conservative estimate. Those I should be able to collect in some quantity.

Any takers, please PM me.

-CK
