Forbes Road ag students have been working hard since January on their greenhouse and they really have a selection of plants. The students started everything as seeds and plugs and now have hanging baskets, flats of six packs and four-inch pots. They have all sorts of vegetable plants, perennials,, and bedding plants, including impatients, petunias, verbenas, and zinnias.

They also have a wide variety of tomatoes,

from Super Sweet cherry tomatoes to Roma and Beefsteaks. Plants will be available May 8. Call Mrs. Meyer at 814-685-3866 or visit the school office
