My piggy box is somewhere in PA, but not here, yet (according to the website). I need to go to the post office, but plan to wait until after lunch, just in case the piggy box is early. The website says that it will be here tomorrow.

My grandmother planted peas on her birthday in mid March and always had peas. Sometimes that works for me, but lately it hasn't. I think I will try some on her birthday and some inside - just in case - this year.

Deeebie.. What time does your mail come. What ya can do is call your local Po and tell them your expecting a special package. Give them the tracking number.

While some things don't show up on the usps site, they usually more able to track details down finer. I would imagine you would come today. You probably would have hit the biggest town next to you yesterday and be out for delivery today. Listen for your mail person to honk or knock or your door which ever they do in your neighborhood.

They always put that expected two or three days up on the website. But in reality they have like 5 to 7 days to deliver it and won't even start looking for packages I think until the 9th or 10th.

keeping fingers crossed for ya.

Just like everyone else, I'm super excited about getting the seeds. Can't wait.

Don't forget folks. that if ya have seed ya want to unload, you can do it here too:

just start a thread and make a post. I have had some cmails of folks looking for seed, but had to tell them swap closed for year, but they could ask for private trades on the above link.

Sandy, so sorry for your loss. Prayers for you and the rest of her friends and family.

Ok, guess who didn't copy Jonna's vermiculite instructions and now wants to plant marigold seeds in vermiculite? Yah, you guessed who. If someone has that easy to get to, or Jonna, if it is easy for you to cut and paste, can I get those instructions again "purdy please". The biggest thing I don't remember is about getting the moisture level in the vermiculite right.

I got my box. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! ..TY Star.

My friend Chris passed away yesterday @ 10:08 am while Brandi and I held her hand. She was taking Morphine the last 36 hours and Haldol cream for being so anxious. She went peacefully and that is all we could ask for. I appreciate the family allowing me to be there as I really love Chris. I will miss her deeply. Group hug

Sandy, I am so sorry for your loss. I am glad that you were there for Chris and her family.

My piggy parcel arrived in my mailbox right on time this morning! I've got to take my mother to an out of town appointment in just a few minutes, but I sneaked a quick peek at my stash. Unbelievable! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I can hardly wait until this evening when I will have a chance to touch and admire each little packet. Thank you, Ella, and all of the rest of you who so generously shared your seeds. I've participated in some good swaps before, but this one has to be the absolute best. Thumbs up
