seeds of sustainability-seed trades

A couple of my seed trades came today. YIPPY!  My different trades so far for the year are about double the number of seed I purchased. The last couple years this is how I have expanded our heirloom seed collection rather than purchasing. the majority of our seed. I find it a much more economical and fun way to  obtain seed. Sometimes we trade for specific things and other times we just send others what we think they would enjoy growing. I enjoy trading  seeds with other folks from different areas of the world  as I enjoying experimenting with the different plants. Some do great, others so so and some don't grow at all.

Today's loot included some rose moss, yucca, marshmallow , black cohosh, several types of tomatoes( even a few funky hybrids),some beans, squash  scallion, strawberries and a few others.  I can't wait to try them and see how they all do here.

Anyone that would like to do a swap send me an email or go back through my last seeds  of sustainability post. I still have everything on the list.
