Greetings from Frigid Kansas

Hello everyone .... I'm Magic_Mike .... Some of you might recognize me by the names Shell or Harry_Dangler on other forums. I expect I've swapped or provided seeds to some of you over the years. It's great to be on board here. I am an old person. I have been growing tomatoes for almost 40 years and have an extensive seed database/inventory. I grow here in 6A Kansas. I have 37 raised beds (mostly 4' x 8') and typically grow 30-40 varieties per year (no more than 100 total plants). In recent years, I have devoted more time to growing superhot peppers and I have a quite extensive seed database/inventory of those as well. I dabble in sales but for the most part I raise for personal consumption and seed. It's good to be here and I hope to interact with you.
Many people have eaten food from my kitchen and have gone on to lead normal, healthy lives.
