Seeds I have to trade:

  • Trading season over for spring. Time to plant :o)!


Seeds I am looking for:

  • Last updated Feb. 24, 2012 **still need nasturtiums & pole beans for tall, large teepees!
  • Edibles for a children's garden at our year round camp with after school & summer programs...easy to grow in our long wet spring & cool summer climate ...green peas & beans, carrots, oriental vegetables (Chinese cabbages, bok choi, spinach-mustard, broccoli), dinosaur kale, nasturtiums, snapdragons, sunflowers, & zinnia.
  • My goal is to help the next generation learn where food comes from & have some fun. Do you remember when you were smaller than the plants & looked up like Jack in the Beanstalk? Have you ever climbed inside a tall teepee of sunflowers & beans all around you? That's the wonder I want to create in the garden for kids.
  • The best way to set up trades is via email.
  • Prefer trades for seeds on want list, but will also trade for size L Atlas fit gloves (latex 300 or 305, nitrile, or garden gloves). Will also trade for small garden gloves for kids, sturdy 8-12' bamboo poles or other sturdy stakes/trellis for Jack in the Beanstalk & other climbers for kids' teepees. Possibly trade for plants on my want list depending on supply of seeds sent/rec'd for these gardens 1st.
