Victory Gardens done for summer

Distribution at the community Victory Gardens is over for 2016. Friday was the final day for produce give-aways at the plots maintained by Crittenden County Detention Center.

It’s been a difficult year at the gardens, with Mother Nature drowning out several plots and extreme heat wreaking havoc on others. Still, the jail was able to offer summertime favorites to the public for several weeks and supply the lock-up with its own store of produce, reducing feeding costs.
