      I may have orach (red mountain spinach), blood veined sorrel, and possbly some salsify or scorzonera? Plus Golden Queen tomatoes.
      Ah yes and hopefully Grandpa Admires lettuce.
      I was hoping to try trombocino squashes again, but thy've had a knock back as we had to take the arch down they were scrambling over, as the wall supporting it fell in the beck!! NOt hopeful we will get anything off them

        Fat Baby Achocha seeds are ready for the swap. I should have plenty to go around!

        My other share will probably be tomato seeds of some variety - there's been a lot of interest in blueberry tomatoes with Facebook friends. They're starting to go blue and are growing really well, so I'm going to try to save some of these seeds. (Not quite ready yet, but looking good: My blueberry tomatoes are starting to go blue)

          Charlotte, you shared your blueberry seeds with me earlier this year. Mine are almost ready as well, they do look lovely. I can understand the fascination with this tom - definitely a talking point.

              Righty ho - I have celeriac seeds!
              I am unsure about the lettuce though - they flowered and then when I checked a few of the now dead heads, there seems to be no seeds I can see. Is there a special knack with lettuce seed?
              On the positive side, my fennel is also flowering (Spiro) now!!

                Yes, sometimes if the fluffy heads get wet [and round here, they did] there can be no seeds as they go mouldy before they go hard. Best time to get them is before the fluff blows away.

                  oh thanks, I cant say I saw any fluffy stuff, so I'll give them a bit longer to see.

                    Ok, I've got tomatillos, a borlotti bean (which is almost dry), and tomato 'Christal's Plum.'

                          Right. Another bump for this.

                          Bags starting to bulk up, with only a few of us having put ours in.

                          Anyone else still planning to send seeds in?

                            I have mine ready to go and I'll get to the post office either tomorrow or Tuesday.

                              Oops I forgot I signed up for this! I have parsnip seeds of an indeterminate variety freshly saved, or I could quickly dry out some red kuri squash - this is what I have been making the pumpkin cake with. What do you think folks?
                              Whooops - now what are the dogs getting up to?

                                Well, zazen999 and Scarlet have already contributed parsnip seeds, and there are only so many that one can grow in the one year that the seeds are viable.
