Jungle Janie's Blog

Blog posts are below this welcome...

This Blog is best viewed from my JungleJanie.com site, rather than from blogspot directly 'cause you'll also have access to my pre-blogging journals dating back to 2002 when I started this journey, additional photos, my social networking site profile badges, and a whole lot more. There's an internal scroll bar on the right to navigate this Blog when on my site too.

Community Seed and Plant Exchange Joy

I just love the community Seed and Plant Exchanges here! 

It's so terrific to meet up with other people enthusiastic about growing and sharing plants! 
“It’s a lot of fun, it’s really rewarding to be able to share seeds and plants that you’ve grown,” Massey said. “Sharing the passion of gardening is something that’s hard to explain if you haven’t done it but if you have, you’ll know what we mean.”

The community seed and plant exchanges actually started a few years before this article says, before Regenerations got involved, but they have been keeping it going and advertising it well for years now. Kudos!

Here's what Darrel and I brought (on the left):
  • 2 mamey sapote trees, 
  • 2 eggfruit (canistel) trees,
  • a rolinia tree, 
  • a papaya tree, 
  • 2 caimito trees, 
  • a jakfruit tree, 
  • and some other things I honestly can't remember at this point. LOL 
We came back with (on the right):
  • ice cream bean tree (inga), 
  • soursop tree, 
  • a roselle plant, 
  • two cacao trees,
  • poha berry plant, 
  • an upright rosemary plant cutting, 
  • 2 chayote squash (vine), 
  • and some seeds (cacao, wiwiwili, winged bean, parsley). 
We meant to bring more seeds, but forgot them. Next time!    feeling satisfied
