Hey everyone, this is Wesley the intern here at Wise County Extension. This is the final week of my internship here, so I thought I would take the time to post some of the best pictures I have taken with the gardeners during my time here.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get fantastic before and after shots like this from all of the gardeners, but I think the progress Katie has had is amazing. Katie was the first gardener that I met with on my own, as well as the subject of my first post, but I have to say even after seeing most of the other gardens in the program hers still stands out in my mind.
Lea Ann, and Ron’s Garden;
I was also impressed by Lea Ann and her husband Ron’s garden. Their property was fairly small, but I was impressed by the amount of productivity they had.
Iva is the gardener I have met with most recently, and I have to say that her garden is massive. I don’t know how she and her husband are able to keep up with it all. When I met with her she told me that she had 73 tomato plants alone, along with corn, peppers, potatoes, kale and cabbage. I think Iva will prove to be one of our largest producers and I can’t wait to hear how well it has done!
