    I have quite the wish list. At the top would be black mustard and shepherd's purse, I've not been able to find them. I have a long list of things I plan to buy for next year, but I hesitate to post it because it is so long. I will trade for just about anything heirloom or unusual, especially tomatoes or dry/dual purpose beans.

    Bonnie Lass, I have some black mustard but very few, I could give you 25 seeds or so.

    I also have corriander and dill.

    What I would like, poblano peppers, would consider other varieties except jalapeno or green bell, red lettuce varieties. PM me if anyone is interested, I might consider most anything.

    Evilbunny, love the name!! I would love to trade for black mustard. I have lollo rosa lettuce, which is rimmed with red. I have a few commercial pepper seeds, a chile mix (ancho, new mex and jalapeno) Thai chile peppers (red and orange) and a hot one called "great balls o' fire". I plan to order anaheim (chile), aurora (hot), fish (hot), and sheepnose (pimento). See anything you like? Will pm also. Bonnie

    Bonnie lass, do you know if the echinacea is Pallida, Purpurea, or Angustofolia? I was wondering, for medicinal use.

    No, because I found it growing wild. I harvested the seeds and have some growing, about 3" tall. Would you be able to tell from a picture? Outside, the flowers are long gone, but the plants are still green, zone 6. Snowed yesterday, 53° today, go figure.

    Well, that rules out angustifolia.

    Did they have more thin pale petals, or wider, purple petals?

    I'll bet it's purpurea.

    I probably couldn't tell from a picture without flowers, unless I did a little reading.

    I'm gonna do some reading and let you know if I would like some of the echinacea seeds. They sound like Pallida.. maybe.

    I have some snow white tomato (yellow cherry type, big hit this year with everyone's tastebuds), maybe some wisconsin 55 tomato, and lots of bloody butcher corn seed to trade (dark red kernals, large stalks and ears, great cornbread). I have other stuff too, that's just what comes to mind. If there is something you would like, let me know and I will see if I have it.

    I was just organizing my seed packages and I came across an unopened package of lavender augustifolia dated 2002, if you are interested, plus plenty of the unidentified too. I would like to try corn as a windbreak in the new garden this year, how tall does this type get?

    I have a ton of black locust seed. Enough to plant prob a good mile of fence row. I gathered it from some trees that were growing in the colorado high mt desert, so they are tough! I don't expect to use any of it since I've moved to OK. If anyone cares for any or all of it, let me know.
