Is anyone interested in doing some type of seed exchange? I've done several in the past on a gardening forum that can get kinda complicated but just thought that maybe we could post what seeds we have and see if anyone wants to swap or just be generous and share.

I have a ton of hollyhock seeds and some black eyed susans that I'm willing to share.

We could do SASE to cover postage or just send to each other. Whatever everyone thinks is best.

Anyone game?

Awesome! I'd love to trade for either sunflower seeds or summer squash! Postage shouldn't be too much, seeds usually should be shipped in a bubble wrap envelope so the sorting machines don't cruch the seeds but you can cut it down as small as you want to make it as light as possible.

PM me if you want to trade!! We can swap info!
