Getting ready for another SEED SWAP

 


I haven't received my seeds from Whispering Willow Farm seed swap yet, but I did receive my 2021 seed order.  My seed collection is growing and I actually can't believe how many different variety of seeds I have.  I can only dream about the different colorful vegetables that are going to grow in my garden this year.  

Since I really value the act of sharing and I also want to meet new people in the gardening community, I was very happy to accept Nikky's invitation to her seed swap.  Nikky's YouTube channel is Our Simple Life, where she shares simple projects related to gardening and homesteading. 


-This is an online swap (you send your seeds and you wait for your swaps to arrive by mail)
-It was 10$ USD to participate
-You have to send 25 packets, they can be same or different varieties
-Each packet must contain between 5 and 10 seeds
-All seeds must be heirloom varieties
-It can be seeds you saved from your garden or seeds you bought
-Make sure you label your packets
Here is Nikki's seed swap video

My husband helped me make origami envelopes.  We followed this easy tutorial and made 25 envelopes.  This time, I made some labels to identify my envelopes.  


I also included a little joke that is totally worth sharing with you guys. 😂

My seeds are all ready to be swapped.  Since I have lots of herbs and vegetables, I told Nikky that I was interested in growing my flower seed collection.  She took note of that.  I can't wait to get her package in the mail!


HAPPY GROWING
