    Hi guys, I know this is a strange request for a sex forum but I'm curious.

    Would any of you be interested in sending me seeds from your region? I'm looking into expanding my garden and the options aren't really that large here.

    For those who are curious, I live in Florida Zone 9b (the gardeners will understand that). I'm looking for fruits, veggies and herbs. Maybe seeds for flowers that will attract pollinators. I'm especially in need of peppers. I can only find pre sprouted and potted peppers. I want to do everything front planting the first seed to harvesting my first crop, so that simply wont do.

    If anyone is willing to help, that would be fantastic. :)

    **EDIT FOR CLARITY**
    Fruits, Veggies, Culinary Herbs. Nothing drug related :p

    are you ambiguously requesting that we send you cannabis seeds? If so, just ask

    No, I'm not. I'm a pastry and culinary student who has a garden. I prefer not to spend my time getting raided, thanks.

    Well, our cash crop down here is cannabis. Otherwise, I don't think there's anything special here.. Corn, tomatoes, normal things.

    And I'm saying this is a covert way of getting addresses so you can raid our homes! /paranoid

    If it weren't legally an issue, I would probably grow and cook with it. As it stands though, putting a green house up in the town that I live in is an invitation to be raided. I live in the country with at least 3 cops in the neighborhood.

    Oh, where I grew up, cops always had the best weed.

    What kind of seeds are you looking for that you can't find online?

    I'm looking mainly for pepper seeds. I try to buy locally or organic. I prefer to not buy from sources I'm unfamiliar with.

    Locally I can only find the actual plants that you can re-pot and grow. I don't want that. I prefer to start from seeds in good soil and chemical free compost and such.

    I have seeded regular green bell peppers for years. I just start them in coffee cans then transplant them to composted soil. I've grown some very nice, tasty peppers. One grew to the shape of a penis. I thought I would add that just to stay with the sex forum theme.

    Hmmm, I'm not sure what is native to my area, I currently live in a rain forest region. I know the Arbutus tree is supposed to be exclusive around here. Well, I'll do some research and see what I can send, Mittimer =).

    Aww, thanks honey :) I really am ok with just about anything. Every region grows different strains of the same veggie or fruit or even peppers. :) Florida only has a certain variety of things to grab and it's the same at every farmers market, specialty store and seed library.

    Ssshhhh, Its under code!! Hhaha Im glad Im not the only one where this came to mind.

    For Christs sake whatever you do, dont put it in!!!

    Seriously tho, we grow alot of stuff out back. Ill have to check and see what we still have, what I can spare, and what is currently still in season. I have anything from tomatoes to Jalapenos (which are plump and delicious if you like spicy). I think my brother has Habaneros too. Garden fresh is always better. Always keep some fresh rosmary, thyme, and parsley. Its makes the best roast chicken.

    lol! I don't think they count. Plus, I'm not sure how all the wild animals would fare with those growing in my front yard.

    Thank you, Love. I got your PM. I'm excited. :)
