Annnnnnd I found some leftover packets of red hybrids and purples/blacks and I can enter a category or sponsor someone with those. Yay random packets!

Edited to add: I'm covered for long keepers and tribble/ruffled. I found more packets.

I might have a teeny tiny seed hoarding issue.

I can sponsor Miss Moustache in the category of Micro/Dwarf. If de colgar is a category, I can sponsor her for that too. I always assumed the long keepers like de colgar were under Novelty. What category do we send the de colgars under?

Well. I love this time of year. I had to upgrade to a 10.5 x 15 in envelope. Gulp.
Do I dare count how many before I send it?

I'm sending in lots of bonus packs of extra tomatoes, peppers, and other stuff. Hope everyone likes squash and beans! And flowers!

I can sponsor someone in either the red, giant, or hybrid categories. (I can actually do two of those!) And I can sponsor someone in the hot pepper and sweet peppers categories. Just send me a pm!

Spoiler alert list will be updated next if any sharks (or guppies lol) want to check it out..

Can I still send stuff in? I have seeds to purge after this season. Some varieties just don't do well for me.

Yup. Deadline is November 1 if you're a procrastinator, 10 if you're not.

Big Beef (35 packs)

Big Brandy (35 packs)
Brandy Boy (29 packs)

Chef's Choice Orange (35 packs)
Genuwine (35 packs)

SunGold (17 packs)

SunSugar (27 packs)



All packs have 10 seeds each. On a "donation only" basis (not required) of $1 per pack, or all 7 varieties for $5. All proceeds would go towards more hybrids for next year.


I'm expecting SunGold to be out of stock, soon.

Tormato, I'm sending in some Brandy Boy and Sungold so those numbers should go up as soon as my package gets there.

I found some of my older seeds. I was frustrated because I thought they were lost/gone. It's a little bit of this and that... would it be o.k. to send them in?

Ok, I would appreciate some advice on mailing my envelope. My garden was a bust this year, and I am being sponsored(Thanks so much!), so I won't be sending seeds, just the return envelope, and my list. What would be the cheapest way to do that?

I know of one way that's pretty cheap. I mailed in the tomato seeds first class. It took about 5 days to get to Tormato, and cost less than $5. I didn't include a SASE because I wasn't asking for seeds.

Just sending in a SASE bubble mailer - fold it in half and use a cheaper non-bubble mailer envelope to mail it in. I'm thinking that you are still looking at about $5.
