Nothing may be as stark a realization as...

... the sudden realization that December 15th (when the NARGS Seed List is published) has 24 hours just like all other days leading up to this day and you don't know in which of the hours list will be open to view :-\

December 15th starts at different times for NARGS members. Which timezone are we using?

Don't know Peter - but it's exciting waiting - like Christmas stockings. Now go back to sleep or Santa won't come!

There will be some new and unusual wild collected seed in the Seed Exchange, so make sure you get there early! Alplains sent us some very nice material at a sharp discount. Take advantage of it.

6:00PM EST means I am in my bed :-\ I stayed up late last night and was very early up this morning too to drive my daughter to the airport (she and some friends want a little pre Xmas weekend in London, can't understand why ;) ) Hopefully it is some interesting things left early Sunday morning!

There should be no worries about that!Last year I had to send my request by "snail mail" as I was off work when the system went "live" and I still got a great lot of seed! This year we have a computer at home - which we only got operational yesterday! Only 3 hours to go!cheersfermi

I pity the poor suckers who don't garden. The have nothing to look forward to in January except dark and dreary days whereas for gardeners it's the start of Seed Starting Season. Don't you think that should be an official season? On year I even sent out cards (ok I'm weird even for a gardener).

Only one more hour to show time.
