Dallas, could be!  Leghorn hens are quite placid, clucking and cooing almost like pigeons.  Rhode Island Reds - those can be mean and aggressive.  I had one who was a serial murderer.  But I like the Leghorns. For what it's worth, they are an Tuscan breed, from Livorno Italy.  That I know that shows my endless hunger for useless information.

Sandi, i LOVE Lemonboy!  Haven't found any plants yet, and it's too late this year for seeds, so I might have to go without this year.   What a beautiful harvest!

Sandi, this is a beautiful harvest! What a treat to wander in your garden, such beautiful produce.  

Comment by Sandi on May 7, 2012 at 5:36am

Sentient, I would certainly be interested in seed sharing. I plan to keep tomato seeds that I have growing this year as well as what ever else I can get out of my garden.

My first harvest :)

It was also the first time I have eaten lemon boy and omg, what a foodgasm!. I have never tasted a tomato so awesome.

Richard, edible landscaping is the best.  It's also a great conversation starter.  And by having all sorts of things, if one doesn't produce, there are still the others.  My yard is a jungle of edibles.  THe neighbors don't seem to mind, and often complement me on it. 

Comment by Richard Haynes on May 5, 2012 at 1:28pm

This is a great idea! I have been trying to redo my yard into an "edible landscape." So, I pretty much only have (and need) veggies and fruit seeds, starts, or cuttings.

Comment by Annie Thomas on May 4, 2012 at 4:14pm

I would be interested as well, though I'm not sure how much I'll have for next year (I planted a very limited garden this spring).  I will have tons of beach sunflower seeds though, which I would be happy to share.

I'm in on the seed saver share and will compile a list of seeds, non-hybridized, that I have to share. 

Comment by Daniel W on May 3, 2012 at 12:31pm

Any interest in starting an exchange list here for starts and seeds?  I usually have too much of something or other.  Some heirloom varieties, non genetically reformulated.  Seeds are usually best sent in spring. Seeds can be cheaply mailed, hardwood cuttings work out well for that too (too late now for this year but we can plan).  If I know now, I can plan on saving some seeds this summer and fall.  I'll start a Discussion topic and if anyone is interested you can chime in.
