I've been working to get the seeds all sorted out. I've been using Excel. I made a list of everyone's order and added them all up. Once I knew how many seeds people wanted I put them all into little labeled bags. For the record, so far there are 31 people requesting seeds and 110 little filled bags. Last year it was much smaller. It seems to grow every year. At some point I won't be able to do it anymore, but so far so good.
After I had the seeds in bags. I made up a mailer for everyone. Those that wanted beans got padded envelopes. Those that didn't got cards. In years past I might have written a little note inside wishing them well with their garden, but this year there are just so many and so little time. I'm sure you will know all the seeds are from me. The labels on the seeds clearly mark it as coming from Daphne's Dandelions.
I expect a few more requests over the next week or so, but not a lot. I tend to get the majority of requests within a couple of days of the post. Though some will trickle in even in December (though I mostly won't be here in December so don't expect any fast response). December really is the time to think about seeds. I've already gotten my Pinetree catalog. I can't wait for the Fedco one to come in. I usually order most of my seed from them as they are a very nice not for profit coop. They specialize in seed for New England. I know the seed they sell me will grow here.
Anyway back to my seeds. I think I did OK getting them right, but I think someone might have gotten some Paris Island seed instead of something else. I should have double checked them before sealing up those envelopes. I'll get the majority of them mailed out sometime next week. I want to do them all at once so I won't have to go to the post office too many times. Right now the Tarbais beans won't be out of the freezer until Monday so probably I'll go on Tuesday.
