Steve Wood

I'm a retired elementary and special education teacher. Full retirement has provided a pleasant freedom of time spent in our garden. I also maintain the Senior Gardening web site.

I've saved seed for many years. Our main thrust in seed saving has been in trying to preserve some of the varieties of tomatoes developed by Jack Metcalf in the 70s and 80s (Moira, Earlirouge, and Quinte). We also work to preserve the Japanese Long Pickling cucumber and Earliest Red Sweet bell pepper varieties.

While I save lots of other varieties of seeds, I generally don't offer those seeds, as many of them are still available from commercial seed houses.
