Thanks for hooking up the community, 50State. That's what it's all aboot.
I wanted to make a few quick notes about mailing seeds:
Mailing a small padded envelope out from the US to just about anywhere in the world costs $1.15, or 3 "Forever" stamps. Drop it in a mailbox at the mall, post office drive thru, or anywhere but not home. Just pay attention to these restrictions (although the USPS is pretty lenient about slight overages):
Max. length 11-1/2", height 6-1/8" or thickness 1/4", weight 1oz
Tip: Don't use your name, property or office as the return address. And don't ship more than a few from each mailbox.
In my experience, a 6x3 padded mailer costs $0.25 (in bulk off Amazon) or less, and can hold about 200 seeds in a small bead bag. This is around an oz weight, all in.
You might not get tracking, but this method is sooooooo much cheaper than tracked packages or priority mailer boxes. And you don't have to go in front of a camera. This is the way many of the seed companies send out testers because it's so economical and safe. If a pkg never arrives after a month, confirm the address and resend. Or just say OH WELL, since beans are everywhere for cheap or free these days.
Hope that helps some people.
