Some seed is new, some is harvested and some is extras hanging around looking for a home. The number in front in parenthesis is number of packets available. Those packets where I only have a few seeds, the seed count will be noted after the name. I will be adding to my list constantly during swap. I have loads of seed to offer, so check back often. : )

There is no order to my database. You'll find flowers listed right along with veggies and herbs, so look carefully. I usually have more seed to offer than I get a chance to post, so if your looking for something special, make sure to add it to your Wish List.

Comm = commercial
OP = Open pollinated
BG = Bagged to prevent cross pollination
Old = Can be 3-5 years but still viable tested
MG = My garden
NH = Newly harvested
EX = Extras hanging around looking for a home. Had plenty of extra seed from trades or swaps to share. If only a few seed, I'll note it.

With all the seed I have, I generally have several databases. I will put a number 2...3...4.. ect. on each new database, so you know it is me. : )

20 strong backs to pull weeds, chop wood and do clean up.
Perfect weather for at least 5 years. Not too hot nor too cold.

Poke Seeds for everybody!!!!!!!! ROFL : ) Just kidding. LOL

Mainly I try and grow things for the hummingbirds, butterflies and other critters that hang out here in my jungle. Oh yes, it is a jungle. LOL

It hasn't been that long since I started learning to expand my knowledge and growing skills for vegetables.

I'm up for just about anything. If I haven't grown it yet, I want to try. If I first don't succeed , I'll try and try again. : )

Thanks for understanding...

From the research I just finished, it looks like mushroom spores remain viable for years. So, just in case mushroom spores show up in anyone's feeding trough....

I recommend adding about 30 ml water, and leave the label in the bag, and shake it, and let it sit overnight before dumping the solution/paper out onto whatever substrate you are inoculating. The spores are not sterile, so I recommend using them only for outdoor grows. Planting at the beginning of rainy weather is highly recommended.

To give the mushrooms an extra boost of nutrients and antibiotics, 1 ml of molasses and 1 ml of 3% hydrogen peroxide may be added to the water before adding to the mushrooms.

Tomato Height

Average tomato plant heights:

Determine is 3-4 feet.
Indetermine is 6-8 feet.

The exact height will depend on climate (the further South you are, the bigger the plants get), fertilizer, watering, etc. Some varieties of course tend to be taller than others. Hybrid cherries in particular, like Sungold and Sweet 100, can reach 10 feet in a good year.

PMB2005... Glad you enjoyed yourself. : )

I try every year to get rid of some Poke Salad seeds. Wonder why folks don't want them. LOL I laughed so hard myself last year. I think just about everybody had No Poke Salad seeds on their Do Not Want lists. ROFL : )
