the meeting was fantastic! It was wonderful to meet you Donna, and the rest of the seed savers. I am inspired by everyone's gardening tales.

We missed you Scarlett, Anthony wasn't able to make it either. We had five members turn up and managed to swap quite a few seed varieties and plants too.

I have some for you including pumpkin, israeli ha-ogen rockmelon and if you need any dill, nasturtium, coriander or basil I have heaps. Trinette gave me some leftover chilli seeds - think it was black pearl and one other. I can post them to you on Monday if you want - just let me know which ones.

Fiona, I have some envelopes that I will be bringing, so you can use them if you want.

Aha - I am looking forward to it... I just have to get some envelopes for the seeds!
I don't have many, but don't want to lose the few I have!

This time hopefully it won't be closed and also no duf duf music so we can stay close to the cafe if it looks like rain, I will also check bom before coming so at least I am prepared! lol

A, if you can make it I would love a lift... never say no to picking your brains ;)

I am sorry but I can't attend. I am quite agoraphobic and find it very difficult to travel by public transport. I hope everyonr has fun though :)
