Page 2C March 6, 2019 il porter II By Vicki Smith Iean Hallman lives in south Monroe County and has the greenest thumb I know of! Jean her three children and husband, Darrell, have a beautiful garden with a greenhouse in their big backyard. They also have several cats and chickens running around. In their greenhouse they grow many types and varieties of tomatoes, herbs and peppel?s from seeds. And the tomatoes they grow are not just any tomato but very spe- cialized tomatoes called Heirloom. What does this mean? Heirloom vegetables are old-time varieties, open pollinated instead of hybrid and saved and handed down through multiple generations of families. They have exceptional taste and once you've had the juice of a perfectly ripe, just-picked, sun-warmed heirloom tomato running down your chin, Jean says she bets you will never enjoy a bland, mealy, grocery store tomato ever again! Jean grows mostly Heirloom varieties because she and her family love fresh, great tasting food. She says having her garden is not only very conve- nient and affordable but also very therapeutic. Her three little ones are mostly good eaters, and it's partly because they get to plant, cultivate and eat their own healthy snacks. The Hallmans will have their 2nd Annual Plant Sale on Saturday, April 13 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at 121 Kingswood Drive, Macon, in Kingswood subdivision. It will feature eight variet- ies of heirloom and hybrid tomatoes, seven variet- ies of heirloom peppers, mint and two varieties of heirloom basil. Additional plants include yellow squash, zucchini, cucum- bers and pepper varieties including Ajvarski Sweet, Sweet Banana and Tam Jalapeno. New to the sale this year is a market featuring home-crafted goods such as Garden Markers, Gar- dener Soap and Lotions, Kitchen Towels/Aprons, Planters, Special Garden Gifts and More. The Hallmans enjoy sharing their love of grow- ing and eating Heirloom plants Jean says she is a "little nutty" that way and says the plant sale not only helps teach the kids about work and money but also about educating and helping others, too. The HaUman kids will be happy to help you pick out the perfect plants and load them up for you. For additional informa- tion, go to Jean's Facebook page: Macon Heirloom Tomato Sale. Monroe County Cub Scout Pack 51 Blue and f2^1.1 r~ in the fellowship hall of Forsy Unitecl'i e'fla- odist Church. The Blue and Gold Banquet is held each February to celebrate the birthday of Scouting. Guest speaker this year was Joe Evans, and special guests were Dale and Donna Washburn, Greg Tapley, John Ambrose, George Emami, and Julius Stroud. Evans encouraged the Scouts to use their God- given talents to contribute to the betterment of their community. He also encouraged the Scouts to depend on people and mentors to help them achieve what they want to achieve. Finally, he encouraged the Scouts to be tolerant and understanding of people who are different from them because we are all created uniquely. There were 25 Scouts and their families in attendance. The meal was provided by dona- tions from Walmart, Fresh Air BBQ in Jackson, Dunkin' Donuts, Captain D's, Shoney's and Dairy Queen.
