Hello,
My name is Kim Lund
I have been an avid gardener for many years.
The past year I have become the Steward of Martin Longseth's Collection of seeds, both tomato and beans.
I plan on continuing to support this collection.
You can find the tomato seeds on Seedsavers exchange. If you want the beans I have a list i can send to an email.
Thank You.
Kim Lund

Welcome Kim!
Martin has many friends here old and new, and I'm so glad to see you stewarding his collection.
He was a fantastic gardener and I really appreciated the wisdom he contributed to so many discussions.
Long live the seeds he left behind.

Hello and Welcome Kim. I'm so happy that you have found us here. I have been watching your progress as you sort through Martin's collection. You sure do have your work cut out for you and know that you will do a great job at keeping his tradition going of spreading his seeds around.

Hi Kim,

Welcome! Bless you for carrying on Martin's seeds. I only recently got to know Martin a bit here on TJ and had the pleasure of growing his Prairie Star tomato in 2021 (which proved not quite yet to be stable), but he also sent me Wisconsin 55 Gold seeds since mine had suffered from a bee cross. I look forward to seeing what of his gems you may share and also offer a sample of any seeds I saved in 2021.

@kdlund121 I have a question for you. Why the thanks for letting me back in? You have never been a member here before.

@kdlund121 Welcome back! It has been a long two years since you were here. Since you are the steward of Martin's seeds, I hope we will see you more often. Martin will be missed...
