Seed swap

Sam. recieved the sweet pepper seeds today, thank you.

Yours should arrive tomorrow or the day after, posted mine the day after you posted. 

What's the weather like in your area?

NW - Dull and wet although mild enough to open the GH door today. The roof vent had leaked and a tray of sweet pea was almost over flowing with water so I hope it doesn't freeze tonight otherwise they maybe lost.

Rain- I've found a local garage selling those shoe grips, only £4.99 but they didn't have my size, supposed to be getting more in this week

Alan,  I made feed from seaweed this year and have bottles of it left over, will it keep till the spring or do you make a fresh batch each year.

It's rained all day here in the NW. Been out driving in it most of the day too. Was driving south on the M6 just before mid day in heavy rain and for some reason the over head signs were warning drivers of the sever weather conditions in the NE  giving the impression...if you think it's bad on this side of the country... it's even worse on the other side

Best runner bean

I tried Painted Lady and Scarlet Empire this year, they were both good croppers and tasty. Much prefer runner and french beans to broad beans.

Sam. I'd be interested in all three, what would you like to swap.

I also have some tom seeds, mainly common varieties but I do have some Xmas grape which is a nice cherry one.

How do we exchange addresses!

I'd be interested in veg seeds.

I've a few different varieties of bean seeds spare - purple podded and yellow plus yard long red noodle, best grown in a GH.blackeyed cowpea and Hyacinth beans. 

Chilli seeds - Apache and cayenne.

I'd like some sweet pepper seeds, a variety which can be grown in a GH bed and grows fairly tall.
