    You own the pointy sticks, you'll have to poke yourself

    As long as I know you are fine. Speaking of which - has anyone spoken to a Sparrow lately? I have seen her flit in but that is about it

    Hi all,
    Cleared this with the mod already not to disappoint anyone but no chamomile this year didn't get a lot of seed and what I got I left near window and they got damp with condensation.
    Sent some mixed poppies instead.

    I love morning glories Squingy! Never grown pink ones before so really looking forward to that.
    I'd added a few seeds of Grandpa Ott in my parcel, they're a dark purple colour (afraid my computer is refusing to accept photos, so I can't post pictures).

    Not the best of them as they only open in the morning and I'm a night person didn't get to take lots photos. The first set were the highlight of our street.

    I sent the 3rd gen of those seeds for the swap. Hope you guys get them OK.

    Sent my set of seeds. Now I'm really embarrassed by the little hand made packs with    washi tape on them but I'm a little crazy and remind folks there isn't a rule about the pack itself, only it needs be sealed. And remember there's no law, forum or otherwise, against crazy.

    Just pull the little tab on the pack to open and u can pour the seeds in your own fancy pants packs easily.

    I didn't have enough bags. I'll do better next year when I've had time to buy the bags. I felt like, if I waited to buy them online and arrive I wouldn't get this done. And I don't even know if I can find them in that podunk town. Even if I did it would be 20mins walk to and fro, so a** that. Sometimes I really miss Manchester.

    Sorry but the Achillea seeds were turning mouldy, I obviously hadn't dried them enough So just the other 3 from me. All bagged up I should get to the PO tomorrow or Saturday

    Great, thanks NG I posted mine off this afternoon, so hopefully it should arrive with you by Friday. I also included a VSP selection in the same envelope, so added a few extra stamps just to be on the safe side.

    It looks like we have 6 of us this year. If you could please send 6 packs just in case we have a last minute addition. I have sent my details via message if you have not received it then let me know.

    Please don't forget to include a return address label and stamps to cover postage. 1st class small parcel - 3.45 or 2.95 for 2nd class. If the return parcels are lighter/smaller I will return excess stamps.

    Also please don't forget the VSP just let me know if there is anything you fancy to be added to your parcel.

    Only a few more days peeps to confirm or opt in for this year. If you have any issues please say - no need to panic in silence, if I can help I will.

    Did better seed saving in the garden because I can use the hose there - not allowed them on the allotments
