Yep we in count down mode.

Remember at 8 pm est time tonight the piggy swap officially opens and you will asking.oinking for all seed trades here.

http://cubits.org/ellasgarden/thread/view/37488/

The first few hours is going to be a madhouse of flurry, so just take your time, trust me we have plenty of seed choices for everybody. If you get confused, stuck, have important question don't be afraid to ask, need help, holler.

Remember also you must have your wishlist and something listed in your seed swap list. It does not need to be complete, you can add to it later as you get time, but you need something up there to start. If you need help getting set up, holler.

Please, remember to keep off topic subjects and questions that will require long drawn out answers, on the chat threads.


I have plenty of salve and bandaids ready for the opening feeding frenzy. Polite pushing, shoving, and tail pulling, leaving foot print s on backs is allowed. Hilarious! BUT NO EAR PULLING. (snort.. Rolling on the floor laughing snort.. Rolling on the floor laughing )

ROFL Ella!!

I'm tinking of adding some images to the "seeds list" like some others have done. i think it makes it easier to see what it is, and then you dont have to look it up.
but if so... i've gotta get busy.

our Gov. race still has not been decided. VERY close.

You're right Ella! This piggy is VERY happy you found those seeds. I planted some that I thought were pink, one grew very small last year and then I thought I thought I lost it in the colder than normal winter we had last year. Lo and behold it survived and shot up like a rocket. I was on pins and needles waiting for the buds to open... then it was orange. Very pretty, but not what I was wanting. Ready to give it a go again! Pride of Barbados do very well here.

I added a couple of seeds to my list last night and revised the ones already posted. Hope that helps people identify some of them. Also added packet numbers.

For those of you wondering about Sharon/Toofewanimals, today is her sons burial. He was accidentally shot in the head when playing with a family gun. Neither he nor the family realized there was a bullet still in the chamber.

Robbie/ Rob her son was 19. Robbie will be living on in the lives of others as the family made the decision of Robbie being a donater for The Gift of Life. You can find out more and leave well wishing at Martenson.com .

Sharon... Love and Prayers with you today and your family. Group hug Lovey dubby

Star, I made a prayer thread for toofewanimals/Sharon for all who would like to add to it for her.
http://cubits.org/newbeeschat/thread/view/40945/
Everyone who would like to support this family can click the link and add prayers, thoughts or comfort as they wish.
Just thought it might help for Sharon to read and see the love from her friends as she is able.

That's very nice Jan Lovey dubby

Question: I see that there is a place to start a folder in cmail.. is there a way to put all of the piggy swap cmails into a folder? It says that you can make a folder and then copy the cmails into the folder but I don't see how to do that????

Oh, what a terrible tragedy. How kind and generous for them to consider "the gift of life" at such a difficult time. They will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I need to add to the have list and cross things off my want list as I get more seeds in their envelops. I'll be sweeping chaff from the kitchen and patio for a while, I am afraid.
