A Personal Hero
Those of you that know me or have explored the Victory Seeds™ web site know that Alexander W. Livingston is a hero of mine. This is the book that helped me figure out the time line of the tomato variety releases from the Livingston Seed Company and set me on my decade long search for his tomato varieties. It was awesome to be able to read words penned by the father of the modern tomato!
