2017 MMMM Spoiler Alert
Read no further, if you want most of your MMMM varieties to remain a mystery.

For those that want to post what they'll be sending in, this is the thread. Only post what you have, not what you "expect" to have, as some people make their wish lists from this thread.

Kitayskiy Oksamitoviy is pink (not blue). I'm growing it this year. Very fuzzy plant, even on the fruit.

Looks like it was labeled wrong, coming in. It seems to be described as having woolly blue-green foliage, though.

Excellent idea to list the 'left-overs', to show what is available right now.

How does all this work?

Hope to begin picking in the next 2-3 weeks. Located in the NC mountains so I am later than most. Enjoyed participating in last years swap and looking forward to this year.

AlittleSalt July 17, 2017 09:46 PM

I have Anna Aasa seeds saved, but I need to do a germination test.

here is a link to the main thread from last year.


That will give you a good idea of how it works. Keep an eye out for the MMM Swap threads for 2017 in the Discussion section. Takes along time to get everything set up, so have patience. Actual swap really doesn't start off until sometime in Oct.

This thread only folks that want a peek at goodies coming in look here. Lots of folks want to be surprised, so keep your eye on the 2017 threads. Swap has tomatoes, peppers, loads of beans and some other things too. Get you pen and paper and start making your Wish list.

If you don't have enough seed for a certain category, ask, there usually plenty of folks around to sponsor other folks.

Just ask questions in the regular threads and folks will help you along. :D

You send bubble mailer, legible mailing address, return postage.
I send back overstuffed bubble mailer, wreck your 2018 garden plans.

jtjmartin July 18, 2017 06:49 PM

AlittleSalt July 18, 2017 07:34 PM

I have 4 more varieties put on the drying plates today. I don't want to write their names here until I do the germination tests. - just in case.

I will ask for any FFFN hybrid seeds when I send in my wish list.

HudsonValley July 18, 2017 07:53 PM

I've got a bunch of Tiny Tim seeds ready to go. It's a micro-dwarf red cherry introduced in 1945 that was surprisingly tasty and that grew well on my office windowsill. My other varieties are still pending...
