Packing and What you will send to me.

IMPORTANT


WE ARE NOW STARTING ANOTHER HOLIDAY SEASON. A REMINDER TO THE OLD PIGGIES AND INFORMATION TO THE NEW PIGGIES.



NOW, WHEN YOU ARE GETTING READY TO CLOSE YOUR LIST< PLEASE POST ON HERE A FEW DAYS IN ADVANCE THAT WAY FOLKS CAN CHECK THOSE LISTS. ALSO TRY AND PUT A NOTE AT BEGINNING OF YOUR SEED LIST AS A REMINDER OF THE CLOSE DATE. IF YOU FORGET, ONE OF US ADMIDS WILL DO IT FOR YOU.

ONCE YOUR LIST IS FULLY CLOSED. PLEASE POST ON HERE AND THAN "AFTER " (not before) YOUR SCREEN NAME ON DATABASE PUT CLOSED. OTHERWISE IT CHANGES LINE UP AND I HAVE TO HUNT THINGS AROUND.

ALSO, ONCE YOU HAVE CLOSED YOUR LISTS AND THIS IS THE REAL BIGGY. DO NOT!!!!!! DELETE YOUR DATABASES OR CLEAR OUT SECTIONS UNTIL I GIVE YOU THE OK, WHICH IS AFTER I HAVE ALL THE SEED MAILED. I go back and forth and back and forth checking seed and also for filling wishlists and tossing extra goodies.

Once you close your lists, this what you will send to me.

1. YOUR SEED FOR PART 1 Marked for who it is for. That the oinking you doing now for newbies.

2. For those participating in PART 2. PART 2 is totally voluntary. A refresher for regulars and for newbies. For every packet of seed you send up to a hundred packets, your seed will be exchanged for a packet from the pool of Part 2 seeds that comes in from your Wishlist and the part about my garden. While I try my best not to send you things from your Don't Want list, I only human and sometimes ya may get something ya don't like. You can always give it away or trade it later.

"Please only send seed that you would be happy receiving yourself. Try not to send tons of the same seed! We have a lot of the same people participating year after year and while I understand that some of you do grow and save seed from the same plants every year. But we are all receiving some wonderful new to us seeds that we should be planting and re offering each year so that we don't all keep getting the same kind of seed in the one to one. Not so much the veggies. Folks can always use veggies and herbs, but not the same flowers. "

Your PART 2 Seeds should all be together and marked on outside for PART 2.

PART 3 This is the section, that voluntary too. Sometimes folks have extra extra seed and just pass it on here in the swap. I go through it, fill Wishes, build boxes for skinny piggies and give to Survivors. Anything left goes to groups who help feed the hungry or it goes in the bottom of the barrel and I toss out any oh which way to folks. Love that part it like playing 52 pick-up only with seeds. Rolling on the floor laughing Seeds that are for PART 3 please put together and mark on outside for PART 3.

OK. NOW YOU HAVE YOUR SEED TOGETHER THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO SEND ME BESIDES YOUR SEED.

1. On piece of paper put your real name and address you want your seeds mailed too. Monday I will be sending folks cmails back with my addy. It will be on same cmail you sent me your addy on. Still have a couple of folks that need to send me cmail with real name and addy on it.

2. No need to send sheets of paper with your coming in and going out. I have that on computer, so try and get those sections updated. Easier for me to cross reference off database if need be and saves you all on ink, paper and postage.

3. Sending your seed to me, protect your seed and yourself. Make sure your seed package has a tracking number on it. Until I have your seed, I won't send yours out. We all know how Po has been lately. With tracking number we can find your seed. Without it , nothing I can do. if your sending by priority, they give free tracking now, but make sure you don't lose your receipt. Make sure they give you one. Hate this new procedure as before the old way, you had that nice green copy not so easy to lose as a receipt. Not worth losing all your seed or getting over like the 80 cent cost if need be for tracking number.

Also, Please enclose your postage. Postage for me to send back is $7.00. Covers any Jan. PO price increases there might be and any extra change left goes to survivors, those who need a little help and long haulers.

Best as soon as you have your tracking number is to come send me cmail of it. That way it won't get lost in holiday stuff. Thankfully we have never lost a box and crossing fingers again this year, but have had to track a few.

4. Postage. Please don't forget your postage. If you send a money order, you can ONLY if they are from POST OFFICe, I can't cash money orders say from like a gas station or corner store.

I think that covers major areas. If you need help or have questions. Holler out. TCS, PATTI or I will help you.

Remember try and get your boxes in the mail as soon as possible. I know weather will be an issue for some folks and not worth anybodys life for a box of seeds, but if you are running late, please let me know. Happens every year and I have no problem with that as long as you tell me.

For newbies who may not know, once I have all the seed, usually takes me a couple of weeks to sort everything out. I work as fast as I can. Soon as everybody box is done they all go out together. I try to aim for second week in January if everybody running on time getting boxes here. No sending of boxes during holiday rush. Things get lost, and squished.

Again, if you have any questions, or need more clarification, just ask! We all ask things at one time or another.
