my grandpa gave each grandkid one and i got the "coffin top" a fiddle base also called a Singer Medium Machine. It was manufactured in Glasgow, Scotland in 1873. i emailed the singer company and they told me that info because this one has no model number, they didnt put model numbers on them yet,, i would love to have it appraised.
sometimes i start mine in egg cartons or recycled plastic yogurt cups with soil or those peat pellets,, some seeds i start in ziploc baggie with the moist paper towel,, i have been setting them inside in my bedroom at the window, which has the best light in the house,,, but this year i plan to either get one of those tiered shelved portable greenhouse, with the zippered plastic cover, or i might recycle my grandpas little greenhouse,,he uses his other he made with old windows, i like that one but afraid one of the kids might fall on it,,, so this year i hope to start most if not all outside,,a couple of years ago i wasnt a seed person but now i hoard my seeds like a chipmunk, turns out to be pretty easy to grow from seed,,,and cheaper too!
does anyone know a good seed swap site,, one thats pretty simple, i put some on Seedswaps.com,, i like how its set up,,,,but it doesnt seem really active and a few times the site was down or problem with page loading,,, anyway is there not one on here? i have looked at daves garden but not sure how the trading process is,, it looks like just forums,,,any info would be helpful thanks
