US (MS): Dixie grandmother grows hydroponic tomatoes

Beth Tucker has been around farming all her life. But adapting to today's technology has helped Tucker grow better products year-round.

Tucker, 55, of the Dixie community has been growing tomatoes hydroponically for about three years at Triple T Hydroponics. She started prep work on the farm a year earlier.

She studied hydroponic methods and business models and did a lot of research for about a year before jumping in, first with one greenhouse and then adding two more.

"I was trying to find something to do here at home so I could take care of my babies," said Tucker, who is raising her two grandchildren, both with special needs.

The Brooklyn native hopes it is something she can teach her granddaughter to do and eventually help her take over the family business.
