adopt a newbie 4

Posted by ymaddox ky 6 (My Page) on

This is a variation of the adopt-a-newbie formally arranged swap. At some point in the past I think this version was done at least once (maybe by accident, but it worked nicely), and a few folks helped keep the newbie list maintained. I'm hoping that we can make that work again.
***Newbies are newbies if they are truly new to Gardenweb, OR are not new to GW but new to trading and seeds, OR could really use help with seed access. Adopters can adopt whomever they please, and so can select according to their own wishes and criteria.
These adoptions are for seeds primarily (though can include plants too during the appropriate season for that zone).
***STANDARD AMOUNT FOR AN ADOPTION = 10-12 PACKS OF SEEDS***
(Though you can certainly do more if you have more to share.)
Costs to the Newbie:
--will pay the postage to the person sending them seeds (or plants) in advance.
--"seeds only" are the easiest and cheapest postage at about $1.50+bubble envelope to $4.00 and bubble envie included by the veteran)
--"plants too"; needs to be Priority Mail; can run from about $5 to $14
--payment of the postage can be done by check via mail or by easier/faster paypal.
Newbies:
--your email address must "show to members" on your member page in order to be put on the list. make sure your email setting is correct (see link below)
--make sure you have things listed on your Want List (see link), so we know if we have things in your interests. You can list, for example, Black Hollyhocks, Hollyhocks, or Old Fashioned/Cottage type flowers, or Things for shade or perennials, and such. (specific or general, anything helps someone match to you)
--sign up by posting here.
--include your zone & state.

Helpful veterans and I:
--will compile and post lists of the newbies+zone+state every so often.
--will check through recent posts and remove those who have been adopted from the new lists when compiling.
--to make things go bold, post < b > before the words (removing the extra spaces I put there), and < / b > after the words (again, removing the spaces). This will help folks find the most recent newbies-to-adopt list.

Traders who want to adopt-a-newbie:
--Try to pick a newbie that matches your zone / climate/ region so that the seeds you know best and have to offer have a chance of growing there for the newbie. Having similarities in garden interests is a plus too.
--POST HERE FIRST announcing who you are adopting BEFORE you contact the newbie. This is for their protection.
--then email the newbie, introducing yourself, providing your screen name, zone, town, state, and offering the adopt.

Newbies who get contacted for adoption:
--check back here to see that the adopter has posted here. (I do not recommend engaging in an adoption with someone who has emailed you but not posted here on this thread. This is for your safety.)
--check the Rate & Review forum regarding the person who contacted you (for protection; this is also why it is required for the adopter to post here not just contact you). This is found at: http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/raterev/
Use the search box in the center of the page (below the posts) inputting the person's screenname.
--proceed with the adopt, and arrange details with the veteran. (At this point, that usually means them offering things to send, and indicating about how much postage that will cost, and how you should send that postage.)
--send them the postage for what they're gifting.
--After receiving the package, thank your veteran & post here too (so we know the adopt worked through).
--Post good feedback/thanks for your adopter on the Rate&Review forum

RE: adopt a newbie 4

I would love an opportunity to be adopted if I meet your criteria. I am not new to Garden Web, but it has been 4 kids and a different house since I was last actively involved :) My oldest is now 10 and the "baby" just turned 4, and we've been in this house for over 6 years...so it's (past) time to get back to gardening!

RE: adopt a newbie 4

Hi! This is my first garden and I would LOVE to be adopted and get some help from some gardening veterans. I am in Virginia Beach, a new mom, and really want to have fresh fruit and veggies for my lil guy, my husband and myself. I just made my raised garden beds and plan to do SFG. I am thinking I may buy my tomato and pepper plants, i guess I am worried that starting those from seeds, they may not take?

I would love help with getting seeds for: jalapeno, banana pepper, any hot pepper, zucchini, spaghetti squash, bush bean, radish, green onion, cauliflower, broccoli, beet, eggplant, peas, cucumber, watermelon, cantaloupe.

my email is Margiesandiego@gmail.com

Thanks!!

RE: adopt a newbie 4

Hello:

I am a newbie to the group and am a semi-experienced gardener. I've had some luck, and mostly learned from my failures, lol. I would love to be added to your list of newbies looking to be adopted. I am doing a Challenge Project this year, to feed myself and my family from the garden for under $25 total cost. I am really hoping to be able to meet this goal, especially with the economy!

As for seeds I am looking for: Garden Vegetables, except greens (I have them covered already). I love heirloom and OP varieties - they just taste better! My goal is to grow them and then save the seed from them for next year and to pass along to others who are interested in this type of project.

I live in New York State, in zone 5b/6a.

Let me know what I need to do to get started. Thanks! Jo

RE: adopt a newbie 4

Hello.

I am somewhat of a newbie. I have just moved into a woodland w/its own "micro-climate". I'm in Northern VA but up high in the mts on the border near West VA (Bluemont/Mount Weather). The land around us is old forest but disturbed so we have bloodroots coming up in the grass! I would like to restore the woods and am looking for woodland seeds/plants/bushes. Native viburnum seeds, redbuds, other similar bush seeds or NATIVE wildflower seeds such as columbine, bluebells etc would be very much appreciated.

I am hoping that by the fall I'll have collected some seeds to share w/others...I'll certainly have bloodroot and pulpit seeds! Thank-you!


 o
RE: adopt a newbie 4

ymaddox...thanks for adopting me! Sent an email reply last night! Stamps are in the mail today!

Newbies...a word of advice: Check Your Junk Email Folder! Well, at least that's where Hotmail sent my exciting adoption offer. Why, I have no idea.

Well, I'm out to garden in the much-needed light rain...thanks again, ymaddox for keeping the list updated, and for adopting me! :)

RE: adopt a newbie 4

I am not new to the gardenweb or the exchange, but I have not done any trading or seed keeping for a very long time now and would really like to start agian. I lost a lot of my gardens over the last year and half. My health would not permit me to go out and take care of them and of course mother nature did in her own way, with weeds. So if anyone would like to help me get back into the garden world I would just be jumping up and down with total joy!
Thanks for just reading,
Kris

RE: adopt a newbie 4

I am officially the newest of newbies. I joined Garden Web this morning... I hope I'm not too late the the party... Looking for a vet to adopt me.

Looking for: Blackberry, Raspberry, Blueberry. Ivy. Really want to do an herb garden. Would like all the classic herbs.

Will pay via paypal extremely quickly. Thanks so much!


 o
RE: adopt a newbie 4

k3c4forlife just so you know generally the things your speaking of does not come true to seed the fruit things. Just thought i would let you know i just got grape vines, and they had blueberry and raspberry clearanced at lowes, if that is of interest to you :) You will have alot of people criticize the big box stores but i buy from everywhere and i absolutely love buying clearance flowers at lowes :). Ivy is generally propagated through cuttings i believe if you know someone that has ivy if they will let you have a few cuttings you just place in water and let grow roots and then pot up. As for the herbs is a great winter sow project, you may want to check out the winter sowing forum on how to do that, alot of us here wintersow seeds :) so i think you can certainly be adopted for the herbs...i have some grape seeds but for the fuss of growing them i still would suggest doing the lowes clearance section :). Will add you to the list next time i update...nice to see ya and hope you hang around a good long time :)


 o
RE: adopt a newbie 4

I have been a member of gardenweb for about 2 weeks now but I still consider myself a newbie. I have no idea how to post the seeds I am interesed in on my profile but I will post them here. I am in planting zone 8 and have a paypal account for fast payment to the user who adopts me.

I am interested in: squash, heirloom tomatoes, garden beans, melons, carrots, all kinds of herbs and interesting/unique seeds.

I am looking forward to be adopted! Thank you for looking! :)

I'll adopt farmer-boy if he doesn't mind getting all flowers :-) If you're interested, e-mail me. Actually, I'll e-mail you, but if you don't get an e-mail, e-mail me. I've had some issues with the gweb e-mail system.

RE: adopt a newbie 4

Hi all! I'm new to gardening, and somewhat new to the Garden Web (did a lot of research before planting what I currently have). I would love to be adopted! I live in Austin, TX, so zone 8. I'm pretty proud of the little garden I have, but would love some more random things to put in. This is my first garden, started last fall, and it is SO DIFFERENT gardening here in Texas to what I grew up with in Australia. I currently have tomatoes, onions, garlic and some basic herbs, but would love some more obscure tomatoes, peppers, other fruits and veges and any flower seeds you feel like sending my way as my flower experience is pretty much limited to lantana and marigolds. I can offer bush beans as I am getting an amazing crop right now, and in the next few months will bank some seeds to trade. I don't mind paying for shipping for plants, and will drive to pickup if anyone in Austin is willing to swing plants my way. Looking forward to sponsoring my own newbie when I've had some more experience! Thanks everyone.

i'm a newbie and would love to be adopted. i don't have any seeds to trade yet...but i'm hoping to save some seeds this fall. i do have some commercial allium bulbs, but they are two years old now. i can provide more details if anyone is interested!

particularly interested in "winter" flowers:
hellebores, snowdrops, camellias
and annuals of course!

trying to update my trade list, but i can't seem to figure out how to get to it...will keep trying.

If I'm not to late I would love to be adopted. I've been on gardenweb off and on but moved to a new place 6 weeks ago and have nothing but maple trees. I'm in Southern Indiana just across the river from Louisville Ky. My yard has some but lots of shade so would love anything shade loving like hosta but also any flower that will not get terribly tall. I have a huge yard now so have space for anything my adopted helper would have available. Thank you so much.

RE: adopt a newbie 4

Hi there,

I'm just starting a garden this year. I'm growing flowers in the front and vegetables in the back, but I'm really most interested in the vegetables! I live in zone 5A (Indiana). Adopt me and you won't be disappointed--I am definitely willing to put in the work to make my garden a success. I'll be keeping a "blog" this summer and you'll be able to follow along, if you'd like. I'd also like any gardening advice you're willing to share! :)

Thanks!

RE: adopt a newbie 4

I would love to be adopted. We are doing our first real garden this year, moving from a few pots on the porch to a decently sized garden, and am looking for veggies, especially tomatoes and other good canning vegetables. Also, looking for some easy to grow seeds, as my son is extremely interested in our garden and wants his own little plot next to mine:) We are in zone 5. Thanks!

Yippie!!! We made the goal!!! Thank you so much, ymaddox for starting this and all your work keeping it going and organized.

Happy Gardening Everyone!

For all you adopted newbies who try to preserve what you don't eat fresh, go to the Harvest Forum for guidance and to help with any questions you might have on canning, pickling, freezing and drying your goodies.


 o
RE: adopt a newbie 4

I know we made it!!! It is my decision that this thread will close after current newbies are adopted...no more will be accepted past this post. Then we will resume late October a few months prior to winter sowing start. This gives us all time to do things we need to get done in our gardens and enjoy all our hard work. Please help finish adopting those newbies still on the list so we can start with a clean slate in October, thanks for all the support of this thread and let's continue to adopt until our list is done...thanks guys :)

RE: adopt a newbie 4

:insert heavy sarcasm: Maddox, you mean you won't have spare time now that gardening season is here? :end sarcasm:

:insert deep sincerity: Thank you so much for heading this up. I am sure it has been a lot to juggle. You are certainly appreciated <3 :continue heartfelt gratefulness:

I wish I could adopt more folks, but I am fresh out of seeds :-/

Seriously though Maddox, let me know if there's anything you need help with when we start in fall. Ie, maybe when there is a confirmed adoption (if you are busy for a few days) one of us can number the adoption (ie 45. this person - adopted by that person) so that you can just copy and paste? IDK if that would be particularly helpful, but if it would, just ask ;-)

Farmerboy's package went out the day before yesterday btw.


 o
RE: adopt a newbie 4

Thanks ymaddox! I rec'd your seeds! Thanks again for the adoption!


 o
RE: adopt a newbie 4

As one of the adoptees in this group of 100(+), I must say that this is a wonderful effort by ymaddox and all of the adopting gardeners!

No surprise if you want to be out in your garden about now, instead of online. All the best gardening bounty for all of you, as well as the many other adoptees.


 o
RE: adopt a newbie 4

Thank you all so much...for the nice words, the generosity, and the heavy sarcasm lol annikasmommykate :) so look forward to fall trades and remember newbies save seed so you can adopt this fall :). Hope u all have more flowers and veggies than u know what to do with. Just share: share with family and friends but also don't forget your local shelters, soup kitchens, the elderly couple down the road that can't garden any longer would sure appreciate those extra squash, tomatoes, cucumbers etc... always give back. It makes the world a nicer place.

RE: adopt a newbie 4

Are there still people waiting for adoption? I had a successful transaction with elvimiller but never heard back from chessmastor, so I even after planting starting way too many seeds, I have more than I can use next year too.


 o
checked the list

If the list from a few days ago is still current, I can offer flowers to kristilindgren and tomatoes/peppers and other vegetables to shinyredthings. I'll send emails now.


 o
RE: adopt a newbie 4

OMG, bizarrogir sent me so many seeds!

I wasn't able to get any planted til last weekend, and I planted all these wonderful sounding peppers. I can't wait to see what the mini chocolate bell peppers look like.

I was hoping to see some of them germinated today.

Thanks bizarrogir!

 o
RE: adopt a newbie 4

Ymaddox - You Rock, as my daughter would say! Thanks so much for the wonderful variety of seeds you sent! I'll be spending the afternoon researching them, and hope to plant tomorrow.

There are some families who can benefit from any extra crops that grow in my church family, so your generosity will benefit them, too.

I hope I can successfully save seeds to share with a future newbie!

Thanks again for both the seeds AND keeping the list up!

Amy. :)

Hi! Is it too late to be adopted??

RE: adopt a newbie 4

Canyonwind sent me herbs. I am extremely impressed with the variety she sent. I am well on my way. Thanks!!!

I would say the adoptions are over, wish I had found them sooner too :/

RE: adopt a newbie 4

I received my adpoption packet in the mail today from cryptid and have an embarassingly generous selection. Thank you so much to cryptid and everyone for this 'program' for we newbies. I don't think I have ever heard of some of these seeds. lol This is a wonderful place on the web and I am so glad I found it. Sorry for getting mushy, just wanted to express my gratitude.

RE: adopt a newbie 4

Purpletomatoe....yep, looks like we lucked out this time. Maybe in the fall?? ;) Although, I did have someone by the name of Sarah email me but she hasn't posted anything here. Anyone know of someone else here that might be smdane05? Thanks!!

Im excited to be a new member and join the adoption in the fall. I'm hoping the winter sown plants from this past winter survive my 80 h
our weeks over the next month.

RE: adopt a newbie 4

Hope I'm not too late. :) I'm just now getting into my gardening, but I'm hoping I inherited at least a little bit of my grandpa's "green thumb"!

Not sure where I'm supposed to put my wish list...here maybe? I'm wanting to have some roses in my garden, as well as any other perennials. I also enjoy daisies, zinnias, and marigolds. I'd also like to have some veggies - squash, peppers, carrots...?

I'm in "zone 7" (embarrassed to say that I have no clue what that means!), and am in South Carolina. :)

RE: adopt a newbie 4

I would love to be adopted! I have no clue what im doing(Sadly).I live in Tx.
I just got a plot at a community garden. And i dont know where to begin. Or even what to buy for seeds. I mostly just want to plant herbs and veggies.
please help! :)


 o
RE: adopt a newbie 4

I have a few varieties of seeds that I could send out. Nothing special - all edibles. squash, cukes, watermelon, chard, turnips. I'm not sure it's enough to call a full adoption, but it will help! Ellen4God, email me.

RE: adopt a newbie 4

Hi! I'm not so much a newbie but this is my first garden that I'm doing on my own. My husband did a balcony garden last year that was fun but this year I'm jumping in neck deep. I'm limited to space and don't know a lot about seeds and when to plant. I guess I am a newbie. I have 2 jalapenos regrowing(hopefully) and two of my little ones are growing radishes, zucchini and we have a small herb pot going. I would LOVE anything veggie and love love love herbs. I have 5 boys so anything yummy, yummy would be awesome.

RE: adopt a newbie 4

Hello everyone :) I'm a newbie here just joined the community yesterday lol I believe I'm doing my first trade later this week :)
I don't know how to edit my lists yet so with that said I would love anything lol

I'm in Spring Hill, FL 34608 Zone 9 I believe :)

Happy seeding!


 o
RE: adopt a newbie 4

I'd also love to be added to the list if possible! This is our first garden and we're having some success but would like to continue and try new things. I am mainly interested in anything fruit or vegetable but would also take herbs and flowers if they're helpful to a garden environment. Thanks in advance!

RE: adopt a newbie 4

i'm a newbie to the forum, but not a newbie to gardening.
i love what you are all doing here, so i signed up and even finally figured out how to post up my lists =)

(note to other newbies, look for "member pages" link in green bar at very bottom of each page )

i would love to be adopted, in fact i already feel adopted =) by you all. nice site. i've been reading for hours.

i have seeds to trade, but would still love to be adopted by someone if they have some seeds to spare, or just want to help me get some new plants.
or if anyone would want some of the brassicas and other things i have -we could trade.

http://members.gardenweb.com/members/exch/leilahamaya?27087

will look around some more...for trading posts =)

RE: adopt a newbie 4

oops didnt read whole thread before posting.
guess no more adopting till fall, sorry, didnt read that part.

well maybe someone will adopt me later in the year or offer a trade. i suppose i may not be the best candidate for adopting, as i have a nice garden already going. but always interested in growing different kinds of plants, i get tired of eating brassicas constantly =)and am on a very very tight budget...

here in the land of no winter -i can start a lot of seeds at many different times of year.
so i am still in seed gathering and planting mode, especially since i worked out a bit of a greenhouse area for extending my growing season, and am planning on filling it up with stuff to come ripe later....overwinter some plants there.

RE: adopt a newbie 4

I am excited to see the adoption link up, my next door neighbor has been a member for a while & told me about the forums. I love all flowers, fruits, veggies, & ornamentals. Perrenials, annuals, cottage type flowers & roses, sun or shade as I have a very large yard and am adding beds every summer. Thank you ever so much! I also am learning about seed collecting and am willing to share. I will be filling out my info pages today. desi64@charter.net

For dustbunnytrail- I sent you an email. I have seeds for you. Jen
