Seed Swap Anyone?

Good morning! I know everyone is thinking ahead to spring.So I was thinking of doing a seed swap.I collect seeds from my gardens each year plus buy new varities each year.I also trade some of my perrinals and herbs to friends and neighbors. I always have a small vegetable garden out back and plant a few things on grandma's farm. Tons of flowers great you from my front yard..
I like to start seeds inside early so they are healthy and strong when they go out to the plots....So what I thought was seeds are cheap to mail and we all like to have friendship flowers growing as sweet reminders of people who care.Fresh homegrown vegetables in the summer are the best!
So let's do a swap!!! Rules to join at bottom of post....

Rules for seed swap~ 1) You must be a follower of my blog (want people I know more likely follow through)
2) You must be within the USA so this will be cheap and fun
3) Seeds can be collected from your garden or bought(really cheap at walmart or lowes) but must be labeled so we know what they are
4) You can sign up to swap seeds with 1-3 differnt people I'll send you the addresses for the number of people you choose remember it's cheap to ship seeds so have fun with it.
5) You can send flower or vegetable seeds but each envelope must have at least 3 varities and at least 5 of each seeds so if you are sending sunflower seeds make sure there are at least 5 seeds.
6) Must be mailed by Feb 19th
7) Email me at cottageprims@centurylink.net if you want to join in the fun..Include your blog if you have one and address and how many swaps 1-3 you want to send.(you'll get the same amount in return)
8) Must sign up by Jan 30th I'll send your swap partners by Feb 2nd..
Don't be shy!!! Sign up and join in the fun!!! Warm Blessings!~Amy

Oh, I am SO in for this one! LOL! I actually was hoping someone would do this! I think too, it's helpful to know what zones everyone is in. I am zone 4.
This is something I can definately do.
Have a great day!

Such a great idea. I'm afraid we don't have a garden. The hounds would eat everything before it made it to the table. I would have to do a raised bed and probably put up a fence to keep them out! We have so many critters too. I LOVE the images above and that divided seed box...to die for!

I don't do seeds but it sounds like a fun swap (and cheap!). I love vintage seed packages, they are so neat. I LOVE the seed box! That last picture is beautiful!
