I Lied, I Do Need Seeds!

I took a look inside one of my seed boxes tonight.  Gosh, what a hot mess!  I need to organize this pronto!  I thought I had all the seeds that I needed for this season, but I forgotten that I don't have any celery seeds.  Last season, I grew Utah Celery from seeds given to me by Food Garden Kitchen, and I realized that I really loved growing celery. What I loved about the celery was that the taste was totally amazing and I used the entire thing, especially the leaves in soups.  The celery was so flavorful, so much more so than celery you buy at the supermarket.  It's also super fresh and fun to just clip a few stems off the plant and let it continue growing.  Love that, it's like having a constant replenished supply of celery!  Also, it seemed like no bugs liked celery at all, so it wasn't plagued by insect bites.  I told myself that I won't buy any more seeds, but that doesn't mean I can't trade for some! Does anyone out there want to swap seeds with me?

Here is a list of what I'm looking for.
1. Celery
2. Any variety of cherry tomatoes, preferably heirloom variety
3. Pepper plants that do well in containers
4. Eggplants that do well in containers
I'm also open to try any new variety of seeds that I haven't tried before, so if you have something unique, I'm willing!

Here's a list of seeds that I have to offer.

1. Jaune Flamme Tomato - (heirloom saved seeds)
2. Persimmon Tomato - (heirloom saved seeds)
3. Rutgers Tomato -  (heirloom saved seeds)
4. Yellow Pear Tomato -  (heirloom saved seeds)
5. Cherokee Purple Tomato -  (heirloom saved seeds)
6. Chioggia Beets - (Sustainable Seed Co. 2011)

8. Cayenne Pepper - (Mike the Gardener 2011)
9. Sweet Banana Pepper - (Sustainable Seed Co. 2011)
