Walton Middle School Agriculture students expect a bountiful vegetable harvest. This semester, under the direction of Mr. Joe Proffitt, students are growing peppers, tomatoes, squash, okra, kale, and many other flowers and vegetables. The students' prize potatoes promise to yield a loaded crop, thanks to the dedication of all 27 Ag students who've taken turns pouring the dirt on them as they've grown. Mr. Proffitt and his students proudly thank the following donors: Adams Farms (and student Eli Adams) for donating potatoes, ACE Hardware store manager Jonathon King for donating squash plants, and Jim and Deb Eveleth of Crescere Farms, LLC, for donating compost. The Ag class extends warm thanks to these gracious sponsors! Submitted by Kristen Nelson.
