    Default Seed Circle Number 11 - The Exotics! 2012

    This circle is for the Rare, Unusual, Heirlooms and Exotics in the way of Fruit and Veg
    The stuff you don't normally stumble across in the catalogues

    The rules are the same as the other circles
    I'll need your seeds by December 1st 2012 for distributing the following January 2013

    Open to ALL - Newbies/Oldies (!) all are welcome, you just need to save the seeds from your interesting crops

    No max limit on number of people in the circle and you don't need to pick more than one crop to save seeds from

    I'll start (received in red)

    1. Vicky - Bloody Butcher Sweetcorn
    2. Jeanied
    3. Northepaul
    4. BarleySugar

    5. Zazen999
    6. VeggieChicken
    7. Soladragon - Egyptian walking onions
    8. Scarlet

    Oooh ooooh * waves hand in air!
    Mee tooo
    Not sure what I can offer yet but I am hoping to have something interesting in the chilli / tomato line. I have just sown the seeds so who knows??? Maybe it will be squashes / pumpkins in the end!

    Please count me in!!
    I have around 15 cape goosberry bushes on the go at the moment.
    And if that doesn't work I have a load of other stuff on the go

    May I join? I'm trying to grow groundcherry/physalis this year. It might be a total disaster, but so far the plants are growing nicely...

    I didn't see Super Trowel's post before I posted. But I have other things as well. Will just wait and see what turns out nicely.

    Can I join please? I'm trying Garden Huckleberry this year, so hopefully I'll be able to offer these seeds, if not, I'm sure I'll find something
