The Post Office has no problem forwarding bills to my new address, hopefully seeds will be the same.
Thanks for everything!

There's light at the end of tunnel, as most remaining packages are mostly filled.

Thanks again.

My seeds arrived the day before yesterday. Less than a week to cross the Atlantic ocean and safely land in my mailbox here in the old continent . I agree with Justin: you really did a great job Gary. Thank you for all that you've done. This was like a second Christmas for me

My seeds made it here today (yes I had my old address on the sase)...
Gary, you just ruined my life... the mailman doesn't like delivering bubble mailers that heavy...
Mary... my better half, says if I send or recieve one more pack of seeds... I need to find a new place to live... then your package of 50 million seeds shows up...
I am now sitting inside my German Shepard's dog house (lucky to have a signal on my cellphone)...
Freezing to death (it's 10 degrees out and there isn't a door on this doghouse) with a rechargeable flashlight (with no place,now to recharge it) going thru your seeds...
I spent the last couple days planning/picking on 100 tomato and 200 pepper plants to grow this season and wrote it all down,then threw it all away... time to start over...
So I thought I'd drop you a line... telling you, Thanks for everything!!!

Just got my seeds in and WOW! Now I've got to figure out how to talk my wife into letting me take over more of the yard.

Laughed when I read this! To me, there is nothing more beautiful than my raised beds in the back yard. Whether they are full & green, or snow covered and promising good things to come.

I finally found the perfect thing to get rid of the rest of the grass in the backyard - a golden puppy retriever! He made short work of tearing up the grass - running, digging & just general dogging! Once the thaw and mud came, my wife agreed to let me cover it with leaves and get rid of the grass . . . more garden beds!!!

Only problem is that now you need to work on training that puppy to not do the same thing to your tomato plants...

Today my neighbor passed by with an envelope that had been waiting in his place for 2 days. The mmmm thus got here in just half a week. That was fast.
What a load of seeds! I opened it together with my 7 year old son and he kept on saying "so much, so much, so much... This is really exaggerated!"
Wow. Thanks so much, Gary. A lot of fun going through them. I will be googling all those varieties. Makes me long for the harvest season even more.
Thank you!!

Yes! I got it! I was going to send you a message but was at work. Thank you! It went straight on my pile of tomatoes to grow in 2018. My pile got huge today. I'll provide my parents again with plants because they have more room. That way I can grow more varieties (and eat more).
