That's not good Sparrow!  Did they give you a receipt at the post office?  They should at least give you the postage back for the lost package.  But the seeds are the real loss of course.  Nightmare!  I hope that they will still surface after all.

Thank you for sending a replacement package.    :angel11:

No, I didn't go for the receipt option. But this is the first one to go missing properly, and it was sent in the blizzards so who knows what adventures it's having. If it comes back I'll keep the seeds - it at least had return postage inside and an address to return to.

Fingers crossed this one arrives ok! :D Am sorry it's not as exciting contents-wise.

Woo hoo. A Sparrow parcel has landed (oca, parsnip...) along with Ruud's  :wave: Thank you. Just tomorrow to see if Roberts arrives, then either way I will get all your parcels back out Friday morning. They are all sorted and looking good. Just a couple of things. As soon as you get them - plant your onions (the poor things want to be growing) and some seeds are duplicated so do not panic they are not meant for anyone else I was just sharing out the surplus.

My seeds are in a small drawer unit - six drawers that are each a bit bigger than an A4 piece of paper. Beans and peas each have their own drawer, then there’s one with flowers and herbs, one with green manures, one for general veggies, and the last one holds the varieties I’m planning for this year along with ones I need to grow out for seed.

I’ll probably need more room for peas soon - as Galina says you have to store a lot of “rejects” when you have breeding projects going on...

I should have confirmed that my seeds were on the way but didn't think of it. Ragged Jack kale, Russian Blue TPS, Taxi (early yellow determinate tomato, does well outdoors), and Black Seaman ('Black'/red determinate; I just about managed to grow these outdoors one year, but don't really recommend it).

It is fine. Don't worry about it as they will miss the return parcels. The thought is there  :happy7:

Mine came too! Saw my postie in the street and he was worried I would have to wait to see what was inside... He is a very nice man!

Thank you so much for all the goodies!

After all the problems, you very much deserve a good postal service, Sparrow!  That's excellent.

I have planted up the oca.  When you said the first two were from Jayb, were they the ones we got a couple of years ago in the seed circle?  Might they be Pobbles and Redley?

I am struggling with your writing Ruud.  Please what is the name of the French bean.  Bruht et bon?  And is it tall or short?

Have already got the Bosque Blue Bumblebee tomato in the propagator,  last bit of space, the others will have to wait a few days, but I just could not resist.  I had seen photos of this tomato before and it was on my 'I desire' list. 

Thank you for all the seed treasures.  :wave:
