Seeds I have to trade:

  • Dear fellow swappers

  • I love seeds, plants, anything for gardening, tasty treats, reading material, and anything useful. However, I don't really need any knickknacks. While I'm sure your intentions are well-meaning, the last thing I need is something else to dust :) Have I mentioned how much I dislike dusting?
