    This swap is not endorsed by BYC (owner, website, staff, etc.). The BYC Staff is not responsible and will not mediate if something goes "wrong" or a deal goes "bad". If you choose to participate in a swap, it is best to know who you are swapping with and not to swap more than you can afford to lose.
    The BYC Staff is sensitive because some past swaps have not worked out. We want our members to feel comfortable having fun with these and other social interactions, but please keep in mind that there were issues with some organizers and swappers not following through on their commitments in the past.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    1. Entry deadline is Monday, February 27, 2012.
    2. IF YOU DO NOT SEND A BUBBLE ENVELOPE YOU WILL NOT RECIEVE ONE IN RETURN, this is the only way anyone will not get one back. I'm the hostess but will also be swapping with you.
    3. Each person is to send 6 packets of seeds decorated with spring theme. You can use stickers, color them, draw them, print your own seed packets ect. Be creative and have fun!! Seeds can be home grown, bought or store bought but must be from last year or present, nothing older. Seeds must be flowers, fruits, vegatables, trees, shrubs ect. send all 6 packets the same kind or 6 different packets of seeds your choice.
    4. Put your byc name on your seed packets so i don't send you the same ones back. Make sure you put common names on them, color ect so we know what the seeds are. My only limit on seeds is try to stay away from invasives and nothing unknown.
    5. After i get all the bubble envelopes in i will swap everyones stuff around. This means you will each recieve 6 different seed packets back.
    6. Sign up below now and I'll update this as needed with who is in.
    7. BE's are self addressed stamped bubble envelopes, please use 4 x 6" size approx. this is to protect your goodies, include a return label and return postage in stamps or money so i can send you your be's back in same envelopes. If postage is not included it will not be sent back until I recieve it. Send for postage what it costs to ship your be's plus a stamp to make sure it covers it. Once everyone is signed up I'll pm everyone my address to ship thier seeds too. If I missed anything please ask.
    8. Please include in your envelope a note with things you are wanting and anything you don't want. I'm not going to guarantee 100% satisfaction, but I'll try to meet your requests.


    Have fun!!!!

    I need more seeds like I need a hole in the head but sign me up anyways. [​IMG]

    This will be a good way to thin out some extra seeds that I've already ordered for this year!

    I'd love to participate.
    I saved TONS of seeds last year from my CSA veggies, and have tons of great stuff to swap.

    Sign me up! I have tons of pumpkin/squash seeds. Am cooking 2 pumpkin pies from the cushaws I grew this summer right now.
    About how many seeds should I put in each envelope? I read the rules so if you already answered this question, I guess my memory is worse than I thought lol.

    I'd say anywhere from 5-10

    ETA: I'm just coming off a gourd, squash pumpkin swap, so that's whats on the brain. For larger seeds like what I just mentioned, 5-10 is good. For smaller seeds, just guestimate what you think would be a fair amount.
