Carthage Plant Sale

Updated:

For those of us with green thumbs, the winter-like weather hasn't put a damper on the gardening spirit.

In Carthage the Ozark Gateway Master Gardeners held a plant sale. Despite the weather, came, picking up their gardening greens. The variety included fruits and vegetables, shrubs, trees and flowers. 

One gardener tells us despite the snow and rain, the plants have held up well and experienced gardeners are prepared for any season.

"We didn't really get cold enough to hurt them. We did cover a few things last night but we really didn't need to. We were really worried about that, we thought about post-phoning, but then we thought gardeners work all the time so we might as well be out there in the cold and wet, and that's what we do" says President Chuck Evans.

The money raised from the sale today will cover the cost of classes to become a master gardener and different projects of the organization.
