    I have been receiving LOTS of seeds from our swap/give away a few weeks ago. I want to personally say THANK YOU to all of you who sent some to me. I am building a nice collection for our "friendship garden" next spring, and look forward to the many more items to arrive we traded for.

    THANKS FOLKS! YOU GUYS ROCK!

    I'm thrilled! We just received some garlic we ordered from Seed Savers Exchange, as well. It is going to be the best garlic garden ever! [​IMG]

    Heck! I missed the big swap. You all are going to have to hook me up in the spring. I have a few seeds I've saved this year, but most of them were ruined by an unfortunate beer spill. DC I have a question about your garden. I've seen the pics. I looks great and so orderly. Are the boxes sitting on the ground or is there a box bottom? They look like they're 12" high, do you find it's enough to grow root crops, or do you have a secret stash of taller boxes?

    Mags... I got your seeds! Thanks so much! I am really excited to plant them this next spring. Super cool....

    kinnip, my boxes have no bottom. We tilled all the soil first, then raked the soil into hills, and then placed the boxes over the top and filled in the rest. That way the root crops just keep going deep down into the tilled soil.

    Does that make sense? It worked really well this year, and we had TONS more crops than last year. I highly recommend this type of container gardening, but it does require you are on top of the watering. It can dry out easy, so daily water in hot weather is pretty important.

    Also, read this book, as it really helps.

    Funny! That's the book I've been using for the past three years. It's really good, except his growing season is totally different from mine.

    I missed out on the seed swap too...is it terribly tacky at this point to offer dill and anise hyssop seeds to anyone who wants some...the dill will grow through concrete, guaranteed! It's been years since I officially planted any - it reseeds wonderfully.

    flower seeds available: Stella D'Oro Daylily,
    Baptisia (false indigo)

    Oh GOD I will take dill seeds like that... and I would love some Stella d'oros... what would you like in return? I believe I will have a variety of heirloom tomato seeds in a few weeks. Interested?
