With all the new folks to trading and swapping and the young folks we had this year, things are not going to be perfect. When they get their boxes, they will see how some of you have done yours and now will have an example to go by.

I haven't even added up the final count yet , but over 10,000 packets have move d around. Now in the process, some folks may have lost, or forgotten a packet of seeds. It happens in a swap this big. It not done intentionally. Sometimes, with the threads moving as fast as they do an entire post may get lost or forgotten. My personal opinion is if just a pack or two, I wouldn't worry abotu it, but if it a whole group of seeds, than cmail ME and I will see what happened. Smiling

Some of the folks boxes not too far away you may get them saturday. Everybody else should be getting their's on Monday, except the long haulers. So watch your mail. If ya don't have your box Monday or tuesday at the lastest, holler and I will check the confirmation numbers for ya and see if your box decided to go sight seeing for awhile.

Hopefully none of them will, they too anxious to get to their new mommies and daddies and start growing. Hilarious!

Tonight gonna be heavenly, have my bed and couches and tables and can move again. Hilarious!

Now taps foot and anxiously awaits everybody else to get their box so that I can get into mine. Hurray!

Here comes the seeds
Here comes the seeds
And we squeal
They are on their way.

Little Piggies
Its been cold, way too long
Little Piggies
Its time to sing this song

Here comes the seeds
Here comes the seeds
And we squeal
They are on their way.

The smiles beaming on your faces
Littie Piggies
Seeds a heading for many places

Here comes the seeds
Here comes the seeds
And we squeal
With many seeds, we soon will play

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

I know, but I always do. I the last piggy as somebody has to close the barn door or who know s what critters will decide to homestead during the year.

Yep this year we had plant folks, veggie folks, grass folks, tree folks. It going to be an interesting learning process. I know myself I gonna need some help especially with the veggies.

There all kinds of forums set up for specific discussion areas or general ones too.

Oh, I forgot also abotu your database entries. If ya don't mind please keep the trades going out and trade s coming in part as is til all piggy boxes have arrived, but feel free to edit the tops and you can use them to make other trade s with folks.

Soon as I get a chance, I gonna get mine updated and open so I can trade with other folks all around cubits too. Thumbs up Got a get the seed. Gotta get the seed. As if I don't have enough. Rolling on the floor laughing

For what it's worth, I still haven't found the packet of Large fruited land-race tomatoes that got lost during the swap. I cleaned my desk, and the barn, and the garage, and sorted through all my seeds several times. I guess the feral shadow hogs took off with them.

Finally made it to the barn dance - but I think all the piggies have all gone to bed......dreaming of all the seeds and the monstrous plants and veggies they are going to turn into Rolling on the floor laughing
But, since I got my finest dancing pink tennis shoes on, I will do the happy dance and close up the joint. Joseph - when you give up looking for that last pack of tomatoes, turn off the light and music Hilarious!

Ella , Terese, LeBug and all the rest of the gang - thank you so much for everything. I know that I will not get to planting all the seeds that I requested, so absolutely no worries about a pack or two, or even two dozen....it is all good. Enjoyed the journey of the piggy boxes. Hurray!

I'm way too excited to sleep tonight. The lights might still be on in the morning when the early hogs show up.
