A pill counter makes what much easier? Taking pills for the carpal tunnel, or seed separating?



And, thanks to those who do de-clump seeds. I usually get one package a year with many bulk seed packets of clumped seeds. My technique, once my fingers are sore, is to place the seeds in the palms of my hands and rub together over a large container.

Well, depends on just how many pills you take for carpal tunnel! Move them to the little trough and cover, tilt trough into mouth and do not choke yourself!


Easy to count the seeds and then cover and the "pour spout" makes it easier on my carpal tunnel to pour them into the baggies with out spilling or trying to pinch/pick them up.

Default pepper sponsor?

I really wanted to participate this year, but this season really got away from me. My plan was to really step it up this year and back my blossoms, but never got that far.

I'm hoping to expand my pepper garden. Would someone sponsor me so I can pick up some new peppers from the swap? I know this is a big ask. Thanks.

Tormato, I think there is a lot of interest in "de colgar" hanging tomatoes. Can that be a category? I guess you need to have 10 different varieties sent in, at least 10 packs each, right? I will be sending in:

Flor de Artana, 66 packs
Ramallet des Figural, 168 packs
Ramallet Ibiza Blanca, 30 packs
Ramallet San Llorens, 11-16 packs

Gerardo said on page 1 of this thread he would be sending some Spanish varieties; is anyone else?

Thanks! That's 5 varieties. Plus I just remembered I'm sending in 11 packets of Keepsake OP, so we're up to 6 varieties.

I'll do what I can, as for categories. The best thing to do is to put the "types" of tomatoes you'd like on your mail in paper wish list, be it hanging, long keepers, etc...(make up your own category if it doesn't exist).

Semena pro MMMM mám už zabalená, také jsem si už vybral odrůdy, které bych chtěl. Včera jsem byl v centru města a prošel šest směnáren. Chtěl jsem deset amerických dolarů, abych je mohl vložit do obálky. Nikde je neměli, nejmenší bankovkou kterou měli, byla stodolarovka. Jedinou možností pro mne je, poslat peníze za poštovné přes PayPal. Hledám někoho kdo má PayPal, který by ty peníze přeposlal Tormato.

Translation:
Seeds for MMMM have already been packed, I have already chosen the varieties I would like. Yesterday, I was in the city center and passed six exchange offices. I wanted ten US dollars to put them in the envelope. They did not have it anywhere, the smallest bank they had, was a hundred dollars. The only option for me is to send money for postage via PayPal. I'm looking for someone who has PayPal who would have sent the money to Tormato.
