Piggies!!!!!!!!!!!

If you don't get a confirmation number it means you not going out til tomorrow. I tried to get everybody done last night after workers left, and I was going good, til a bag of popcorn went all over and into buckets and it one heck of a mess. I cleaned up another mess and finally said that it for night and went of to sleep for a couple hours.

I know some of you are trying to save on the environment, but no more heavy seeds like that in just a thin piece of newspaper. AGGGGGGGGGG. I still got pop corn everywhere. I hope I get it all before hot temps hit. Don't know at what temp it pops but I just hope I remember when I hear what sounds like shots going off during night that it just corn popping in the 110+ heat.

I heading for my appointment and po and will finish up when I get back. Whew! Some of ya better have two tons of soil and a gazzillon pots. Your gonna need them. LOL

Oh no!!!! Because I shared 25 packets of popcorn, I was feeling horrified about creating extra work until I read that part about the newspaper. Pheeew. No recycled newspaper from me. I already had my ears pinned to the barn door a few years ago about putting too much seed into packets. Fond memories... I still have elf-like ears because they stretched out so far trying to hold my weight. Poor Tuinkabouter, telling me that she'd take whatever I wanted to send!!!! hehehe.

A couple days ago I spilled a few cups worth of popcorn into my winnowing fan while trying to carry too many things outside at the same time. They ended up all over the house. And I couldn't sweep them up for re-use because no telling what kind of corn or weed seed might have already been on the floor.

I've had a glorious time playing around with the seed envelope template that someone uploaded a few weeks ago.

PIggies... I know ya been waiting to hear this. You can come out hiding now.

Everybody is out the door and on the way. Well, everybody but Joseph, who has live plants and such in his box and I know it wouldn't make it there before Saturday and stuff would have to sit in cold maybe til Monday. Joseph, check your cmail.

And Tuink, you'll go out tomorrow. I still pulling staples, rubberbands, paperclips and anything that might injury your piggy. If I would have one more hour would have made it, but Po ain't gonna wait for me.

I sittting here with a plateful and I mean a plate full of bacon and a cup of coffee and several ticker tapes 6 feet long. Sheesh. I miss the little green tracker forms. Will take me several hours to cmail everybody with your numbers. Got go back and hunt folks addys to tape to see who is whose number.

SASSAFRASS AND KWILDS still need to hear from you. Your seeds will stay here til I do. Smiling

Your welcome Wildflowers and Thank you too. Group hug LOL Maybe tomorrow after Joseph is kicked out of the barn and I can close the doors, than will start cleaning up the mess. Company can have a seat again and I can have my bed back too. Hilarious!

TUINK .... You are out of the barn now too. Your confirmation number has been cmailed.

Now everybody keep hoofs crossed that all the long haulers get their boxes safely. Big Grin

That only leaves Joseph and still waiting on Sassafrass and KWilds.

IMPORTANT!!!!!!!! To all piggies. Do not, I repeat, please do not mess with your databases yet. I'll give ya the all clear once everybody has gotten their boxes. I not gonna lock it, as some folks will use the about my garden part for keeping records and recording stuff and don't want them not to be able to use that feature.

Just a friendly reminder, I sure some of you got some things you never going to use or just don't like. Your welcome to trade them or give them away. We have a seed trading forum here too. Just go up above and click on this forum and you can start a new thread. The one thing you cannot do is take the seed you got or extra seed if you got more than what you will use and sell it. Yes, somebody tried it and I went after them they also banned from here. I think we have good bunch of piggies here and hate that I even have to mention such a thing, but gotta cover the all the bases. Smiling

When ya get your boxes , would ya please post ya did. Lot easier for you to come here and post ya did than me trying to fight to wait for upsp site to load and read the tiny numbers. I would appreciate it. Big Grin

Oh and for those folks skipped my above a few posts, post, remember if there is a question or a problem. Please cmail me. Exception is those cmailing Rising and if ya do, remember to be polite.

I already found seeds to Andi from Jonna that fell out of bucket when we had to move them during my arctic damages, so don't be afraid to ask.
Nisi... check when you get your seeds. Found packets of Marigold Julie, Tashkent and Safari Primrose. Not sure if they was just extras or fell out of your envelope.

Oh I excited. Some piggies getting their boxes today. Hope the others arrive soon. Po man told me today that they just now starting to get mail from Atlanta and Birmingham that been siting for over a week waiting on clear travel conditions.

I just hope our groundhog down here is right and spring is on its way. Hurray!
