Default 2017 Mostly Mystery 'Mater Mailing

It's July, so it's time to at least start working on the "rules".

Gary Fitzgerald

Rule one is don't PM me for my mailing address, or my PM box will get overloaded.

22 Francis St.

It's here between the Elvis smilies.

Westfield, MA 01085

(I think Elvis will keep any bots from phishing my address)

Up next will be the different parts of the swap; wish lists, categories, Nifty Fifty categories, peppers, bonuses, other veggie/fruit/flower seed, along with packaging and mailing instructions.

Anything new that anyone would like to add?

Yes, the first post is quite early. Dr. Love Apple must have too much time on his hands.

Only ten days earlier than the 2016 MMMM start. Maybe this will translate into the procrasti... the participants sending packages in a little earlier.

Suede always sticks in my teeth something awful, <sigh> I might have to look for a nice wooden boat to bite for a tooth pick....

My back is itchy, maybe my fins are coming out early this year.

Is a sharkload bigger or smaller than a boatload?
And if bigger, would it be... You're gonna need a bigger boatload?

Last year I saved a buttload of seeds...a shark is much bigger, but not as big as a boatload...depending on the size of the boat. so hmm?

One variety might need a larger jar than the pint jar I'm about to put them in. This is what they are in now

Psst...it's the MMysteryMM. The label should be on the back of the jar.

I'm thinking you might need a bigger container for your fermenting...perhaps a silver SCUBA tank...close the top...let the pressure build...Brody then can feed it to the...

I like those jars....

Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it, ah, out of sight
Ya know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, oh, wears old MacHeath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red
