Raleigh NC and surrounding -- anyone need melon or eggplant seeds??


We have an abundance of donated cantaloupe, watermelon, and eggplant seeds. Could anyone use them? We have planted thousands of plants and know at this point we will not need them all. We'll save some for next year, but I'd like to see more of them getting out into gardens this year.

If you could use some of these seeds, let me know. I think the eggplant are mostly black beauty, the watermelon are cannonball, congo, Charleston Gray, Jubilee, and Dixie Queen, and the cantaloupes are some burpee hybrids and some non-hybrids including Hale's Best and a very few banana cantaloupe.

(Seed is donated to us, and while we don't accept GMO we do accept hybrids and just make sure we let gardeners know in case they don't want hybrids.)

Now that I look at my list, it looks like we have a plethera (sp?) of carrot seeds too if anyone would like some little finger or long orange.

Post a comment if you'd like some and either we can arrange for you to pick them up, or I can mail some packets out to you. While I'd prefer to have folks come pick them up here in Zebulon NC, if anyone is further away in NC -- or I guess elsewhere in the USA -- I can mail a few too. I'd like to have them out there in America feeding people instead of waiting for next year when we're already well-fixed for seed/plants this year.

Abundance is a wonderful thing! Let us share with you while we can, and hope for good future seasons too.

Thank you!

I would love some seeds. I am willing to pay any postage. What is the best way to submit my information to you for mailing?

Same here...I will send you the postage because I am in NY.
