Seed arrived in wet and windy Lancashire, U.K. this morning ... many thanks to all the wonderful volunteers, donors and organisers.

Ah, so there's still hope for mine? Haven't seen anything in the mailbox yet and I'm keen! I know it's a lot of work and I'm grateful so I shouldn't be impatient!

I'm starting to wonder where mine is too... hope it's not drifting around aimlessly out there!  You are in Canada, too, aren't you, Liz?  Maybe it's just a function of the cross-border transport, somehow.

Yes, and that has me worried! You never know what new rules there are that you haven't heard about. Oh, well, patience IS a virtue, and I'll continue to work on getting some. Patience, that is. Too late for virtue.

Everyday for the past week, here in central Ontario, I've excitedly checked the mailbox and nothing :(  Last year's order arrived February 4Th so I'm not panicking yet.
But speaking of 'wandering around', in 2009 the NARGS seed order had not arrived by mid February so I made some inquiries.  Yes, my order had been filled and sent out!  Weeks went by and I assumed it was stuck in customs or lost.  But it arrived in April!  Our rural mail delivery person came to the door with a very soggy and dirty bundle of mail.....the NARGS seed package and bills.  It had been found two concessions away, in the ditch, revealed by melting snow, near someones mailbox! Talk about being thrilled ;D
This mail lady now receives a lovely bonus every Christmas!

Mine haven't arrived either :'(
Sent my order in the day the list came out but I think it takes something like 2 weeks each way for mail to get to destinations between US and Canada. :-X
Am so hoping the online ordering starts next year. :)

Mail delivery has been very good around here for last few years... so I'm not yet tempted to start checking the gutters and back alleys.  ;)
(... Although some time ago, we did have a sociopathic mail carrier who would park on our boulevard (lawn at that time) or blocking our driveway - despite extremely ample parking space in this neighborhood - and preferred to bash through people's hedges rather than use the sidewalks.  Instead of using an organized mail pouch as other carriers do, she had loose mail thrown in the backseat of her car and would grab handfuls to deliver at each stop.  We'd get at least one mis-delivered piece of mail each week...  Had the mail been delivered by aerial drop, I think it would have been only slightly less accurate and much less damaging to the landscaping.  :rolleyes:)
