Any Canadians interested in a seed exchange this winter?



If so, list what you're searching for and what you have to share.

I think it's a great idea, but the only seeds I might have are mammoth sunflower seeds. (I hope to be have more seeds next year.)

I'm very interested! We've been saving seed for a number of years now, both for ourselves and the local seed library (hosted in the actual library, very cool) so we probably have some stuff other people would be interested in. Tomatoes, herbs, squash, flowers, cucumbers, dry beans, et cetera. Some we've been growing for long enough that they've probably started to adapt to our Okanagan climate. We also live 20 minutes south of the Gellatly Nut Farm, home to a lot of fanciful nut breeding experiments (some of which were quite successful and were propagated all around North America). Being nuts, those are only available certain times of the year (i.e., when we go out for a family outing to the farm in October; already been this year, sorry). I'll try to post a list when I'm using an actual computer. And not trying to make breakfast for the kids

I'd be game for this as well.  I'll have to make a post later on everything we have though.  Off the top of my head:

3 types of Pickling cukes.
Daikon and cherry belle Radish
a few types of "surprise" squash (usually spaghetti/zuke/pumpkin cross)
chives
night scented tobacco
Mongolian giant sunflower
a smaller Red sunflower(saved from a hybrid it still has a bit of unstable results)
Mini pok choy
aunt mollie ground cherry
Amaranth x 2 (love lies bleeding and another)
3-5 tomato varieties
oregano
dwarf grey snap pea
calendula
zinnia
Giant mullien
6-10 pepper species

I know there are a bunch more... I'll post them later.

I'm located 2 hrs West of Ottawa so zone 3-4 ish
