    1. Entry deadline is Wednesday, November 30, 2011.
    2. IF U 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. 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 gourds, pumpkins or squash. Send all 6 packets of 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.
    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!!!!

    There were some requests for a fall themed seed swap. By the time the squash/pumpkin/gourd is used for the holiday, then the seeds are harvested, then given time to dry, I'm guessing we will be into the first part of the year.

    I will also have a second annual, Spring seed swap in February.

    This is the link to last years Spring seed swap for reference:
