Star: YES to all sections.

11th hour seeds: info
1 oink is available of each.
First C-Mail gets it, I can't keep up with the threads.
If you're oinkless and see something you love, C-Mail anyway. I'll give the oinking pigs first priority, but unoinked seeds may find their way in as "extras".
Most are commercial or 2011 Piggy Swap seeds, some are from my garden, whatever I felt like I had enough to split out a piglet's portion. If you want to know the source, ask when you C-Mail and I'll be happy to provide all the info I have.

The original list

Unless another source is noted, these were grown organically in my garden. All my plants are open-pollinated (or "promiscuously pollinated" to borrow Joseph's terminology) and therefore might not come true to type. I'd be happy to discuss genetics if you have any questions.

Oinkers: all seeds are available first come, first served based on when I get a C-Mail. I'll do my best to accommodate double-oinks, but make sure you C-Mail me as soon as you see something you want so that I can put your name on it.

Anything crossed out is no longer available. If you're dying for something crossed off or anything from my 2011 list, C-Mail me and I might be able to scrounge up a small pack.

I grow as much food as I can on a small lot in Norfolk, VA. I'm most interested in fruits, veggies, and herbs, though I'm slowly expanding my knowledge of companion planting and am beginning to work some ornamentals into my veggie beds.

I have long, hot, humid summers; short, mild, wet winters; sandy soil which I'm slowly improving; small beds and lots of containers. I'm right on the line between zones 7 and 8, with a strong marine influence.

For pictures and more info, feel free to browse around my Cubit: http://cubits.org/urbanfarm/ or check out my garden updates thread: http://cubits.org/urbanfarm/thread/view/57545/

New this year, I'll be doing some container growing in eastern NC, where I now have a job and apartment. It has patios on the north and south faces, so I should be able to grow a variety of plants.
