Johnny Jones, the jailer in Woodford County, has created a large garden at the detention center, with the help of the inmates. Jones comes from a long line of farmers in Midway, and got Ag extension agents support to apply commercial practices to this garden in order to make it large and really productive. The inmates work in it regularly and raise the vegetables for the jail and charity.  Photo by David Perry | Staff
