Would anyone like to trade seeds?

I have a list of what I have, mostly saved from my garden here in this doc that I try to keep updated.  There's chocolate cherry tomatoes, rat's tail pod radish, mustard, winter squash, herbs, and a few other things, just for an idea.  Several of the strains are locally adapted to western Oregon, others are sourced from people here on permies - I've been growing Joseph Lofthouse's sprawling ground cherries for a couple of years now and saving seed from them, they are really quite fun to grow and eat!

I'm particularly looking for edible/non-toxic flowers and beneficial plants, especially early summer flowers for cutting.  I'm of course interested in fruits, vegetables, herbs etc as well but I'm really trying hard to get more flowers in the garden this year.  There's a more detailed list in the linked doc, but in general just throw what you've got at me, especially if it's weird/cool or locally adapted to a similar climate or anything like that.

Thanks, and happy winter garden planning! ~

It looks like you have some good varieties Rebecca, well done. I have a good friend with a vineyard in the Chehalem Mtn AVA near Newberg who has a great abundance of cuttings of over a dozen grape varietals (pinot noir, gris, chard, mueller, riesling, several table grapes), old varietals of caneberries, and old varietals of fruit trees and walnuts. He may like to trade with you you're interested, and when I visit I will try to get in touch and see if you'd like any of what I have.
