    do you know who is in charge of the seed circle? i mean because i don't have a lot of seeds for each variety so maybe would be nice to give some to someone that will provide to save some seeds.. i will do already this year for that 4 variety that i have plant. i'm not sure but reading around post look like zazen is ome that organize everything.. i'm right?

    what i was thinkin is that he send me all the seed he have and i will send him the english variety...
    i've been here for a while and i know there are a lot of people that are not honest...infact i have some seeds now and because i'm honest i will send some of mine to you and i don't want people think that i'm one of them that take and don't give... so for now i send to each of you some of mine and then when you recived them send me any kind of veg that are heritage or rare ( of course not point send a moneymaker tom or garden delight, or black beuty courgette)... feel free to send whatever feel to send

    plus. lotty dolly i'm in debt with you for that beautiful comfrey roots that you send me... my plants are loving that homemade tea...

    I don't want make enemy. That's why I suggest if someone is in charge (I meant a mod) so I can give them more seeds so they can share. I've been so affascinate from growing veg and fruit that big company want you to eat and even grow. Old fashion variety are better stronger and tasteful.

    here the list

    i made small packet of seeds and some of the variety that i didn't have a lot i prefer to make more packet with less seeds...
    this what i have:

    10 packets of tomatoes tondino di galatina, (this is one of the winter tomatoes 10 seeds per packet)
    8 packets of tomatoes tondino di barletta, ( winter tomatoes 20 seeds per packet)
    7 packets of tomatoes tondino di altamura ( winter tomatoes 15 seeds per packet)
    10 packets of tomatoes grappolo d'inverno ( winter tomatoes 10 seeds per packet)
    6 packets of tomatoes giallo d'inverno ( winter tomatoes 10 seeds per packet)
    6 packets of tomatoes regina di fasano ( winter tomatoes 15 seeds per packet)
    10 packets of tomatoes fiaschetto di torre guaceto ( fresh consumption here a link about it:Area Marina Protetta Torre Guaceto: Vegetables and Legumes: Fiaschetto Tomato of Torre Guaceto BIO - Organic Farming Label e Slow Food Presidium
    5 packets of papaccella riccia gialla ( 5 seeds per packet)
    10 packets of papaccella riccia rossa (6 seeds per packet both nice sweet flavour with a misshape pappers and thick flesh here a link amicidellortodue: Papaccella)
    5 packets of pepper cornaletto dolce ( 5 seeds per packet like a big jalapeno pepper but very sweet.. nice to fry and add to tomato as a side)
    5 packets of aubergine bianca sfumata rosa (10 seeds per packet here a pics Melanzana Rotonda bianca sfumata di rosa Vendita semi sementi | Larosa Emanuele Sementi
    10 packets of aubergine rossa di rotonda ( 6 seeds per packets look like a big tomatoes as you can see in this link amicidellortodue: melanzana di Rotonda)

    ok so if you interest on any of this seeds let me know so we can swap with some heritage, heirloom or special variety of any veg...
    as you can see i have a lot of winter tomatoes and they have almost the same name but because they come from different area with different soil and different wheater condition ( barletta is grow on the beach of barletta town so is a sandy soil instead altamura is on the hill and the soil is more loam) but they change a bit in shape and taste as you can see the pics on this blog amicidellortodue: Pomodori Pugliesi

    so i'm waiting for your list and considered that i don't know much about uk variety i will appreciate if you tell me what is the characteristic of that veg.
    thanks

    I wouldn't worry about that - anyone is free to swap their own seeds as and when.

    What I'd do with yours though - as you have different varieties and different numbers, is for people to send you equivalents, and an address label and 2 stamps and you do a first come first served swap.

    So if someone sent you 12 packs of seeds that you do want, and they get one pack of each of yours.
    If someone just wants say, 3 packs, then they send you 3 equivalent packs that you want and you send them the 3 they wanted.
    If they want 5 and there are none left of one, then they get 1 substitute in the 5 they get back.


    You could update your thread to say what you have got left and what you want and what you have received and then people will know what's on offer and what they have to do to get swaps!

    thanks zazen...i like your advice... but instead of doing all this send label and stamps, i will do that for people that are new or not been that often here... for exaple you that have been here from 2007 and with almost 18.000 posts i don't mind send you some seeds and whenever you have yours to send, you will send to me...of course if i know you will send me some seeds that are heavier like beans and broadbeans i will send you the stamps...

    ps.
    i just got an e-mail back from that italian friends and he has read this post and he told me that don't worry about what to send... something that you may be not worth for him may be the best... so just tell me what you have to swap and i will tell you what i do like to have.... plus he loves the idea of italy and uk ( and france friends are of course welcome) swap so he told me that he will send me a bit of everything he have so we can share...
    i hope in a lot of people to ask me the seeds....
    thanks
