Shay Reynolds worked in technology with a focus on tourism for most of his adult life while raising a daughter, his family are animal lovers with cats, rabbits chickens and a rottweiler.
Shay became involved heavily with gardening in 2020 during the C-19 outbreak, his friend Chris helped him till up 1/2 acre of his backyard to build an in ground garden. Shay's had some early success growing cucumbers, watermelons, okra and peppers so then he decided to convert his entire front yard to a food garden as well with the help of his friend Kate. With some hard work and focus, the new urban farmer began selling baskets that included 35+ lb watermelons and somewhere within that process he realized he had a green finger.
