Scott County Grow Appalachia
It has been another action
packed week for the Scott
County Grow Appalachia
team. We have been busy
plowing and tilling ground for
our participants. We have
finished distributing fertilizer,
onions sets, and seed
potatoes. The weather has
been just perfect!
Our plants in the greenhouse
at Scott High School are doing
very well. Our participants
have requested a large variety
of plants. They have
requested six different
types of tomatoes, five
different types of corn, and
eight different types
However, the only type of green
bean our participants are asking for
is the white half runner. Many of
our folks have said that they want
half runners because that is
what their grandparents grew.
