WANTED: 4 young girls wish lists

Mermaidinthegarden(6a)January 29, 2013

UPDATED!!!
Thank you to those who have sent in some of their requests already. The girls each have their own seed box and have been really enjoying getting things to put in them. We have been looking up pictures of what they get each time an envelope comes.

My neices helped a lot in my garden last year, including helping to harvest and process seeds. I told them they could have one of my garden beds this year to plant what they want. They have been excitedly looking at all the seeds I have been reveiving in trades and at my seed catalogs (they highlighted EVERY SINGLE plant in the Baker Creek catalog, lol, I know how they feel )and asked if they could make a list of seeds they want and see if someone will send them some. They want THEIR OWN seeds, not mine, . I will put up any seeds on my HAVEs list for anything the kids want (check my list in the trading bazaar), will also help them send SASE if you want. Hopefully they will each get some of their wishlists filled.
-please send AT LEAST 20 pea or bean seeds, 6 tomato, etc I will send you the same amount. Enough that the whole family can eat the harvest and so that, should something go wrong or the kids want to experiment, there are enough backup seeds to replant. Thank you!
**Overseas trades WELCOME! They would have a blast looking up other countries to see where their seeds come from!

using their nicknames as screen names

Hi, I think I can send your girls and you some flower and vegetable seeds. Please check my trade list and let me know if you want to do a trade. I also have unlisted ones so we should be able to do a large trade. I see lots from your list that I would like.
Thanks for looking, Jen

Thank you jensyen and demonshollowasyllum! Recieved the packages today and the girls were so excited we had to look up everything on google to see pictures. And the envelopes were great too, liz, they were using them to share seeds with each other.
