You are very generous. If your county has a large volunteer network, or if there are community gardens, I bet you will find a home for them.

My wife always manages to find takers for my extras every year, but I usually have about 20 every year.

I had over 150 extra plants. I took some to the community garden, some to the American Legion and also to friends. I have 6 left, they are going today to a friend who called last night that I had not talked to for quite a while.

Following along since I usually have a similar (but smaller!) dilemma each year, and wonder if this post will attract some useful suggestions for the future. I am assuming shipping seedlings is out of the question for most of us.

My daughter is visiting, and I have "digital marketing" on my mind. I bet there is a website for a local sales or swap community that could work quite well.

This one is Freecycle

https://www.freecycle.org/

After the swap and give-away options are done, comes the tough choice part!

I ended up with about 40 extra tomato and pepper seedlings. I took them to the office and did a giveaway to coworkers and even the security guards in the lobby. Great way to get to know my coworkers better, and all plants got a new home.

I give my extras out every year too & even though given freely, the unexpected rewards have been welcome, such as restaurant meals, bakery goods etc. I gave my hair stylist 4 seedlings this year and he gave me a free haircut! That was definitely the best of all in value

I give away between 40-75 plants each year to coworkers and family. Better than killing those extra seedlings I need to weed out!

No fringe benefits have made their way to me from prior seedling give-aways. Not even a report on how well they performed, but it is better than just pitching them in the trash.
