Volunteer Background
I have been a backyard gardener for a number of years. I especially enjoy growing different varieties of tomatoes and pole beans/limas and cowpeas. I start everything from seed, my tomato seedlings grow under lights indoors until they can be safely transplanted to the garden. I have an extensive collection of tomato seeds, (maybe 400 different varieties), many which have been gotten through trade with other people throughout the world.
Favorite Crops & Least Favorite Crops
Favorite: tomatoes pole beans, pole limas, pole cowpeas, and vining cukes.

Least: corn

Possible GMOs in the neighborhood...
As far as I know, there are no GMO crops in my area, I am located in an urban setting, but with a large yard, 1/4 of which has been devoted to gardening.

I suffer from Vine Borers, so I only grow C. Moschata variety squash.
