Just not ticking things off my too do list fast enough before next term starts on the third. Though if you want to do a seed trade Reed I would make time for it.

There is a seed exchange website where you can list the plants you want, and the plants you have to offer. There is quite a broad range of availability, however there is the problem with the shipping: most of them are in France and Belgium.

See for example the Cucumis melo section, with a bit over 100 varieties:
