HEH… well I’ve been having some fun over on www.listia.com bidding with credits,not money; on seeds. Me and Silver have managed to win some dwarf teddy bear seeds and some sugarcane seeds. I also got some acorn squash seeds this morning on it.
Now I really enjoy this website as it’s a good way to pass along seeds you don’t need and to pick up some hard to find ones. I.E… the sugar cane. You join the site and start with about 500 credits to bid on auctions, you gain more credits by “gaining levels”, buying them, or from auctions you set up.
Me and Silver set up separately auctions of the two packs of carrot seeds I had that we can’t use yet. Our ground just isn’t good enough as yet to grow carrots in a year or two maybe.
Now while perusing this website I have discovered a few “funny” things about this site. …not bad funny though… First one… in the seed category you will see many seeds up for auction and sometimes muti-auctions by the same person that are the same item. Also these seeds come in small amounts. My dwarf sunflowers are only 6 seeds… which if I were paying cash I put out I might not be willing to put out as much as I did.
The other thing is while tech everything on it is FREE.. tech… I think if you buy credit it’s not free. There are people who make you pay shipping… even on a few seeds… come one.. they aren’t willing to put out one stamp? I could certainly understand not being willing to do shipping on a LARGE item… but a pack of seeds… or just a couple… it’s silly.
Then.. oh this is good… finding “organic” Lambs Quarters, and this morning… “heirloom” cattails…, I’ve got “heirloom” cattails across the street, and I know a few other spots that have them. Though, I imagine some people might not know that while yes you can eat both of these plants… one is by most considered a weed. The other is grown as “pond decor”, which is sad as cattails are a supermarket of food; well food and weaving material.
However overall I think the website is good, and fun too. Just remember what I mentioned if you go into it. Also if any of my readers wants to join if you use the following link I get a bonus and supposedly you’ll get an extra 100 credits.
We have a mass of bean flowers right now, my secondary beans are sprouting up front as they are a different type. If I’m lucky my melons will stay around and produce. I picked another pint of berries this morning and we did some pond digging too. Gotta send my son out to cut wood later.
Have a great day!
Be Well, Be Safe, and Blessed BE…
