MY HAVE's SEED TRADING LIST
--- SWAP LIST HAS BEEN CLOSED ---

Added 12/7/14:
Mini Indian corn -- seeds are several years old but viability has been tested and is excellent. Cute 3 to 5-inch long ears with a nice variety of colors; stalkes are quite tall, approx. 6 feet. Nice autumn decorations! I've seen these little ears selling for as much as $1.00 each.
1. Bluee19 (WISH)

Added 12/4/14:

Catnip (Nepeta cataria) -- seeds collected this season, probably a little chaff in with them.
1. Joseph
----------------

Updated 11/6/14 and will definitely have all of these seeds for the swap.
All varieties are open pollinated unless specifically noted.

Pole bean, snap (Phaseolus vulgaris): "Blue Peter," aka "African Blue"; this is an heirloom bean, apparently quite rare -- I first obtained it from SSE in 1986 and have grown it every year since (and will be listing it with SSE as well this year -- there was only one person listing it in 2014). Purple pods that turn green when cooked, flowers and vines are also purple. Tall vines that reach about 12', going to the top of my 8-foot trellis and partway back down.

A BIT ABOUT MY GARDEN
I garden at latitude 45 north, near the shore of Lake Michigan in the Michigan Upper Peninsula. Supposedly my USDA zone is now 5a, since the restructuring a few years ago, but after last winter I believe they might need to rethink that! (More like zone 4b)

My main interest is my vegetable garden, which is about 25x75 feet, although I also have a sunny perennial garden, a shade garden, and grow annuals here and there... I have a particular interest in growing heirloom varieties, native plants, and plants that are attractive to butterflies and bees, but I'm open to nearly anything. I'm also particularly interested in cold-hardy plants and am always experimenting with ways to extend my veggie growing season cost effectively (i.e., I don't think that heating a greenhouse would be practical, given the amount I would harvest from it).

I grow pretty much all the "normal" things, and love trying something new every year. (This year it was growing gourds on an arch-type trellis... now I have a ton of gourds to deal with!)

I didn't save a lot of seeds this year, but next year will plan things with swapping in mind...

MY 2014 SEED SOWING JOURNAL AND NOTES SECTION
Golden Hubbard squash: "The Golden Hubbard, which is really an orange-red, was developed by J. J. Harrison of Storr’s & Harrison Company, Painsville, Ohio. It was introduced by D. M. Ferry & Company of Detroit in 1898. The Golden Hubbard should produce a dark green or olive-green patch on the blossom end, an indication that the seed is growing true to type."
