I dabble in all sorts of things, but one constant has always been vegetable gardening. I am fascinated with beans and melons, though the biggest interest I have is definitely tomatoes. I own several hundred varieties of tomato seed, and every year I try to grow a few new ones.



My gardening interest led me to become a member of Seed Savers Exchange and a Master Gardener for Contra Costa County, then I went back to school and earned a Master's degree in plant pathology. Now that I'm out on my own, I'm working on making a career for myself as aplant doctor and garden fixer. When I'm not tending my 1200-square-foot veggie garden at home, anyway.
