    Default Would really like....

    I hate asking but there are three lots of seeds that I would really like, the only places I've seen them are on the internet and I can't really afford to make up an order.

    I don't have a lot to swap other than a rather excessive collection of unopened beetroot and PSB seeds.(and perhaps a few squash)

    Two that the kiddies have loved in the past are the spiral beetroot (can't remember it's name) and Crystal Lemon cucumber.
    Also, for me, a couple of Yin Yang beans.

    I do feel bad asking, hopefully this time next year I'll be more sorted with my seed saving and have something decent to offer

    I gave away Crystal Lemon to the VSP. You can have them for me if they are still available...what is spiral beetroot? Do you mean Chioggia? Pink and white striped?

    I've got some - how many are you after? I will also spread the seed love from Zazen as she let me have some Yin/Yang beans - two you say? I don't have the Crystal Lemon or Crystal Lemon Puke as my son nicknamed them, that's why they went to the VSP!

    Thank you, how ever many or few you can spare would be great...looks like I get to grow DD's favourite(the beetroot) and DS's fave (the cucumber) after alll.

    The Yin Yang beans are just because I think they look pretty, would be grateful for even just one bean that I can grow and save the seed for next year.

    Were you interested in any PSB or I have Marketmore cucumber seeds.

    Once I've checked them over and tried sprouting to check they're still viable, I may have some different squash too.
