HAVE: Seeds for postage

food_loverNovember 5, 2012

Hello folks,

As part of my job, I manage a small community seed project. I would like to pare down the seeds we are holding onto because some are losing viability. There are a few seed varieties that I would like to offer to the seed exchange community. The germination rates are low (tested this September and October, rates are out of 100 tested seeds), but you can plant them thick. I will send unopened packets and if you think you will need two to make up for the low germ rates, let me know. Ideally 10 or more different people will be able to get seeds if that many are interested.

As of the moment, the following is what I have available.

Tomatillo, germ rate: 58%

Habanero peppers, germ rate: 25%

Hutterite soup bean, germ rate: 57%

Magenta lettuce, germ rate: 48%

If you are interested, please post here and I will email you the address. Please send the addressed envelope or bubble mailer you would like me to use as well as enough postage to send you what you would like. Please let me know how many packets of each you would like. I have about 20 packets of each, except for the tomatillo seeds which have not yet been packaged. Please keep in mind that these should be stored well and used soon as the germination rates are already pretty low.

Please post or email any questions. Sometimes emails get lost in my inbox so please resend if you do not hear from me soon.

Thanks!

Jay

Would love to have 2 packs of tomatillo and maybe 2 packs of the Hutterite soup beans and if I'm not being too greedy, I would enjoy the habaneros as well.

I sent each of you an email with the address to send your enveope or bubble mailer. Can you also include the list of seeds you want in the package and your GW username so I can keep track of things.
Thanks!

Hi Everyone,
I am glad there has been such a positive response to this offer! I realized that the lettuce is not already in packets. Instead of sending two packets of lettuce (and tomatillos), I am just going to put twice as many seeds in one packet. For the lettuce, we usually put 1/4 teaspoon which is about 250 seeds. I am going to put 1/2 teaspoon instead.
I am looking forward to receiving your envelopes!
best,
Jay

If you have already posted requesting seeds, I have set aside your seeds so they are ready to go when your envelopes with postage arrive.

If you have not yet posted, I still have the following available:
Habanero Peppers: 14 packets
Hutterite Soup Beans: 9 packets
Magenta Lettuce: a bunch, I am filling packets as the requests come in.
Tomatillos: a bit, I am filling packets as the requests come in.
