Hi all,

 

I haven't been around in awhile. innocent.gif  I think I was depressed from moving every single year and not being able to have a garden.  We just put an offer on a house with 10 acres and am looking forward to staying in one place for many, many years.  So I thought I'd start off by starting a seed swap thread.  For those who don't know me I have been an organic farmer in CA, I went through the Master Gardener program in 2011 when I was pregnant with my DD and now am looking forward to having a homestead and managing that after the baby comes and we get settled.  It will definitely be a work in progress.

 

Tomatoes:
Homestead 24
Arkansas Traveler
 

 

Greens:
Swiss Chard - 5 color
cress
Brussel Sprouts (Catskill)
Beets - Detroit Dark Red
Summer Spinach
Cilantro
Cabbage

Chives

 

 

Herbs:

Golden Purslane

German Chamomile

Sweet Annie ( good for wreaths and arrangements)

 

Squash or Melon:
Muskmelon - Jenny

Cucumber - Edmonson Pickling

Flowers:

Hi there fellow-transplanted-Wisconsinite organic-lover! :) I moved here from North Carolina, where I did container and raised bed gardening in our yard. It seems I may have some of what you seek, and would love to share with you in exchange for seeds, or would just be happy to send you some of what I have to offer to help out a fellow natural mama. :)

 

Tomatoes:

Cherokee Purple

Yellow pear

Heirlom yellow slicers

Arkansas Traveler

 

As for other seeds:

Cosmic purple carrots

Waltham butternut winter squash

National pickling cucumber

Baby Pam pie pumpkin

 

So I definitely have your pie pumpkin, at least. :) Let me know! Hope this finds you well!
