Alexa, a young gardener and 4-H participant, has taken her vegetables seriously.  She visited with her 4-H group earlier this spring in March.  During that trip, they planted pumpkins and brought home tomato plants.  Well, Alexa has tended seriously to her tomato plants – entering her plants in the Marion County fair!  Alexa & tomato

She withstood judging and we’re waiting on pins and needles to hear how she did.  Good luck, Alexa!  So exciting!
