Would anyone be interested in a gardening/seed swap?

I thought it would be fun to craft: decorated hand trowels, decorated pots, sneeling pad, gardening apron, etc.

and include extras such as partial seed packets. I bought some seed packets to plant and there were way more in there than I want to plant. So I thought it would be good to share and add variety.

Any ideas, thoughts, comments and interest is welcome.

I'd love to do this.  I save my own heirloom tomato seeds and would love to get some veggies back in trade.  A gardening and seed swap sounds fantastic!

Thanks for the link. I looked through and there are soo many thing that I never new I wanted for my garden. The windchimes are cool. The gathering Apron would be totally awesome. There were lots of different and lovely plant markers.

I was hoping for a slightly smaller swap perhaps just 2 or 3 points plus extras (seeds, chocolate, string wire, velcro, etc)

How many points was the original swap?

2-3 points plus extras sounds perfect.

I'd be happy for this to be the first swap that I organize on my own. I'm currently a co-co organizer for the matchbox swap. Sendouts for that are April 30th. So I won't be able to start sign-ups this swap until after that swap has completely finnished.   If anyone wants to start it sooner than that feel free!

I would be very interested in this swap.  I was going to take a little break from swapping so I can concentrate on working on my garden, but this combines two of my favorite things!

Hi! I haven't been active on Craftster for a while (new job and what-not), but I love to swap and I love to garden, so this one looks like a lovely way to get back in the saddle. Smiley I think I will be "in" if you go ahead with this. Loved the gallery from the last round, btw - so many wonderful ideas!! In fact, I will go ahead and start crafting for a "hope-chest" for this swap now. THANKS!!
