Yes, yes, yesss!! My box was here when I got home from taking my little rescue dog for her first visit to Pet Smart! Even she knew it was special mail...she was pushing it around with her little nose and sniffing and pawing. Maybe she's a seed-detection dog?!

Thank you so, so much Ella, Terese, and LeBug for keeping things moving along so smoothly. And, Ella, your long hours of work are so much above and beyond the call of duty that I don't even know how to thank you! There's a special place saved for you in the great "paradise for gardeners"! I have learned a lot from all of you ladies this first year, and I appreciate all of you putting up with my questions. Thank you, Kelly, for bugging me until I participated!

I guess maybe you can teach an old hog new tricks!!Thumb of 2011-01-22/ragtag/e9dcbb

Hopefully those will be delivered before this next snow storm hits Monday evening for us. Don't want those boxes to get froze up at some PO and not able to be delivered because of slick roads. Blinking

No ya didn't I just a slow typer. I hope the rest do too.

I been shipping stuff for many years and never have in a day and a half had boxes get to the west coast. I wonder if cuz of Atlanta and New York running behind the other planes was empty or something. Whatever the reason glad they arriving.

Folks will be hours and days now trying to see what they got and organizing things.

Heck even I may get to my box sooner. Thumbs up

I know some of ya going be so busy sorting and figuring out what ya got, but if ya happen to have a few minute s while ya sorting and such, if ya would be so kind, please consider putting at least the name of your seeds, scientific and common also in the A to Z database.

http://cubits.org/ellasgarden/db/plantsfromatoz/

Then as folks get time they can edit and add info or pics for folks for other folks.

Rides, there should be enough for your critters and you and hubby too.

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Maybe the Po got scare d with me mentioning that Charlie could probably deliver boxes faster and got scare d you might really open a mule team express mail service. Hilarious! Hilarious!

So glad to hear the boxes are arriving. I'm happy mine isn't here yet because I'm sick. Snow or no snow our mailman delivers here even though we told him if it was really bad he could skip us a few days. I think he is working extra hard for more honey.

and the beloved Winston the pug
Wow! I didn't trudge up to the post office today. Given my experience with the post office, the box probably wasn't there yet. I have things to mail Monday, so I'll check. Besides, I didn't receive my electrical bill in the mail, again, and have to file a complaint form. I sure hope that all of my complaint forms get some people fired and the mail running normally. I am so glad that I can check these things on the internet.

I better hurry up and get ready for some major winter sowing activity! I am trying to find last year's spreadsheet in my DVD backups and archives. I also have to get my pictures in order. I'll try to get information in your database as I go, Ella, so that we can all share.

I have a new rescue dog also, a pug. I am a foster home for him, but we are becoming very attached. I may ask if I can keep him. He has some skin problems, which I am treating. I am also trying a grain free diet and testing him for allergies. They were calling him Pugsley, but I think I'll call him Winston.

I had already posted some pictures in the rose forum under "our companions". He is looking a bit happier these days, I need to take some more pictures. I just measured him for his own hand knit sweater. He thought it was a very odd thing to do. I think I may write up the pattern and sell it with proceeds going to the rescue organization. I better see how the sweater turns out, first.

My seeds came today!!! Yeah!!! Hurray! I have a lot of work ahead. Hilarious! The storms and winds we have had lately demolished my greenhouse and I lost all my tender plants and brugs. Grumbling So I start with a clean slate this year.

Thanks Ella and everybody for such a wonderful selection of seeds and the surprises. Smiling Group hug

Oh my gosh!!! I thought the work of the seed swap was done when I mailed my box off to Ella. My box arrived today. And what the heck! With all those seeds it will take another week to sort them and decide what to plant where.

Thanks everybody.

Yes... it does take a LONG time to get thru it all. especially if you keep "lists"

I opened my box this afternoon when it first got here, but i havent 'rooted' thru it yet.

some times i made a list on paper, and i usually list who i got it from... early on I added all the seeds to my spreadsheet... but in scanning thru the box, i see Ella added quite a few 'one for ones' so those will have to be added.

and i have to admit... some i can't figure out what the text says.

I'll have to ask what they are by what i can guess is written on the pack.
