  • Newton and McDonald County Master Gardeners Jutta McCormick, Beverly Caywood and Jo McLemore were on site this week working tediously and diligently to beautify our flower boxes here at the hatchery. The Master Gardeners have been taking care of these flowerbeds yearlong for many years. Like elves at work, we rarely know they are here, but what they leave behind is divine. We are indeed grateful for their service.
