    Thought I'd get this one started...

    I have Bright Lights/ Five Colour Chard seeds.

    I need: Winter Density lettuce, fresh parsnip seeds, collards that will grow in the north, cilantro, okra...what have you got to trade?

    I don't have much to trade.
    I have one pod of burgandy okra seed that I could trade.
    I would love to have a couple of chestnuts to try to sprout.
    Thanks.

    Ooh, fun.

    I have Pennsylvania Dutch Crookneck Squash, Perilla, Brandywine and Golden Pear tomatoes, a few Cherokee Purple and Lucky Leprechaun tomato seeds to share, Thai and Sweet Basil, Dill, and Rose of Sharon. I just put in two big orders to Pine Tree Seeds and Heirloom Seeds, and I ordered a big variety, so I will have lots of seeds of each thing that I can't use in my small garden. If you have something I want, odds are I may soon have a veggie or flower you want.

    Vegetables: I'm looking for bush-type winter squash, bush beans and edamame type soybeans, and onion sets. For tomatoes, I'd like to try Black Krim, Cosmonaut Volkov, Czech's Bush, Urbikany, and Tiny Tim.

    I'm also looking for cutting flowers, especially ones that grow in part/full shade and are NOT pink (pink clashes with my house). Some of the ones I had in mind are: Columbine, Love-in-a-mist, Lupine, Rocket Larkspur, and Wallflower. For full sun flowers, I'm looking for Flanders Poppy, Foxglove, Gloriosa Daisy, Phlox, Ranunculus, and Stock.

    Oh, I found some Burpee Golden Beet seeds and some Chioggia Beet seeds I can trade, too. I got the Winter Density lettuce and cilantro and okra, so I guess I'd like to trade beet seeds or chard seeds for fresh parsnip or collard seeds. Or...? Whatchu got?

    I've been seeing quite a few varieties that I'd like to try, but can't justify
    paying $2.59 plus shipping just to buy for "experiments".
    I will go ahead if someone would like to split the packs with me.

    I'm looking at the Seeds of Change Catalog and want to try:

    Amaranth
    The Burgundy Variety for edible leaves and beauty.
    Manna De Montana for the seeds.

    Huazontle (Red Aztec Spinach) Chenopodium berlandieri
    This is a gorgeous pink variety of lambsquarters. It says it stays red even after cooking.

    LambsQuarter Magenta Spreen, Chenopodium Giganteum
    Also known as Good King Henry, this is another spinach type plant that is
    not only edible but the colors are gorgeous.

    Chrysanthemum, Shungiku Edible
    Edible greens and flowers that make leis and garlands, garnish.

    I'll split either individually or the whole order if someone wants to, which would come to $9.00 for 1/2 the order, or less if we can divide it between 3 or 4.
