Swappin Seeds

In the afterglow of all the Christmas exchanges, the seed exchange from Heirloom Seed Swap guarantees you won't end up with some crazy sweater or a scale (seriously, someone brought scales to our exchange last night - and not a cool weigh-your-wheat one - an actual bathroom scale)

The Seed Swap site has some awesome post-apocalyptic goodies:

Red Russian Tobacco - you know that's going to be a major trade item for all the smokers who burned their last pack.

Heirloom Butternut Squash  - the trader says this one grows well in the city - anytime you can pick up a hearty seed, it's a good idea

Apricots - I'm amazed at how quickly these grow and bear fruit

All the trades are FREE - pretty great resources too, and people looking for the seeds out of your garden.

You may not be able to trade the ugly sweater - maybe if you call it a survival sweater??


  1. Hey Survival Mama,

    Thanks for visiting and joining my blog as well. I will also be joining and reading yours!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the other Mamma!

  2. Thanks so much for visiting my blog recently! I love that you are following, too. I am following you right back. When you said something about an ugly sweater, it reminded me of how a friend of mine's family exchanges ugly sweaters at Christmas vs. real gifts. The pictuers from it were hilarious! Might do that next year...

    Following your blog!
    Please follow back!
    If you could follow me on Facebook, that would be great!
    The Dad!
