After reading catman thread, I relized I will have extra seeds and thought of the idea of swapping some seeds with other members that have some extra seeds

what do you all think about the idea?

That's how I got at least half of my tomato seeds last year.

If you have the time, go register at GardenWeb.com in their forums and you can post in many sub forums like tomato growing, vegetable gardening, etc. and there are plenty of good people there who will do seed trades. That's where I did all of mine last year.

What seeds do you have? I might be into a trade if you have a variety I'm looking for.

I'd be into it. It can be done real easily thru PM, a simple exchange of address and seed varieties and of course follow the honor system. I haven't been disappointed in seed trades yet. Got some great seeds last year and had some delicious stuff growing in the garden.

Most of my saved seed are tomato. I've been growing these for several years and have had good success with all. Little or no crossing has been observed, no guarantee though. Quantities are limited, of course, but I've got more than I'll ever need of the the following:

Giant Belgium
German Red Strawberry
Kellogg's Breakfast
Jeff Davis
Delicious
Lillian's Yellow
Abe Lincoln
Garden Peach
Lemon Drop
Sugar Lump

Any questions or interest in sharing shoot me a PM. I would like to try a dark tomato other than Cherokee Purple. Never had any luck with it. Any ideas?

In tomatoes, I've got Emerald Apple, Violet Jasper, Riesentrabe, Ozark Pink, Branywine and Chocolate Stripes ordered.

Sure there will be some seeds left over

Haven't tried them. I've tried Cherokee Purple several times and my yields have alway been poor. They get a lot of press but for me I've given up on them. One that I liked a lot was burgandy traveler, but when I saved the seed the following year the results were not at all what I started with. For the last two years a much smaller tomato and no where near the yield of my orignal seed. Will have to give black krim a try. Thanks.

Black Krim is my favorite black tomato. Not as sweet as Cherokee Purple (actually I have only tried Indian Stripe which is a variation of CP). Great flavor, definitely give it a try.

One note, black krim is prone to splititng. Careful with the watering and it's still worth it if they do split a little.

Someone send me a PM and remind me to look through what seeds I have left over from last year. Then I can tell you what I have to trade and I will know what new seeds to get (I always try new varieties every year and only re-grow the better ones from last year)

I grew some Northern Lights last year. It does fine in the heat and kept on growing through a long, hot dry spell.

So how long do seeds last? Could I plant seeds I bought today next spring? In 5 years? How long? Thanks.

Depends on what seeds and how they are stored. Cool, completely dry, seeds like tomatoes will stay upwards of 20 years, and over time the germination rate will decrease gradually. Corn does not last as long. I planted a bunch of tomato seeds this year that were at least a year old and they germinated very well.

I am looking for some Okra. ...unfortunately I do not have any seed to trade. However I would be willing to buy or trade for a bottle of homemade wine.

I used to post there a lot but haven't in a year or two, so I dont know.

What kind of seeds are you looking for?

I gotta look through my jar of seeds first, but I can let you know what I got to spare and can send you a few. Been slacking in the seed saving department so I don't have as many as I should, but still should have a few to spare.

I guess I'm a little late - you still needing okra seeds? I have a variety that is unusual (well, unusual to me) in that they tend to grow sort of fat real quick and are ready to pick when they're about 3" long. They taste great. I grilled a lot and of course fried a lot last summer. They are prolific. Right now, my garden is covered in them and I do mean covered just from where old pods from last year got knocked around the garden and tilled under. Not to mention the (2) rows I planted.

We create names for our seeds a lot and I call these Smiley-Shaver's. A guy at work (last name Shaver) got them from another guy at work we call Smiley. Smiley has been saving them for Lord knows how long - he didn't know what they were - nor did Shaver of course who gave a bunch to me. I've been saving them year after year myself. Hence, Smiley-Shavers \:\) .

I've also got some of the best Pole Beans ever if I may say so. I got them from a buddy whose Great Grandmother started saving them over 100 years ago and their family has been saving the seeds year after year ever since. We call them Geneva beans because that was his Great Grandmother's name.

On a side note, I'm really not sure why I wrote all this since hardly no one stops by the Gardening forum \:D \:D .
