At the ripe young age of seven, I created a business called SkyGardens with one customer and one financier - my Grama. She bought me an 8x10 greenhouse, and I sold her tomatoes as well as tomato plants. Then she’d offer me a tomato (to eat), and when they were ripe on the plants she bought, they would be waiting for me the next time I visited. When I think back to where this journey and crazy idea truly began, I can’t help but believe that the seeds were planted by this beautiful woman.
Though she is no longer here, her fingerprints are all over this journey. She bought the “adorable” tractor we use, was a perfect example of perseverance, and together, her and Papa built their home and a life they loved on this land. We are just continuing the legacy while trying something completely new.
