During National Garden Week, Vinton Garden Club members (photo at right) Sharen and Fran Stueck planted bubblegum petunias in cement planters in front of the Benton County Speedway grandstand.  Ted Stueck participated but was absent from picture

Also, during that week, between June 3 and June 9, four Vinton Garden Club members left Sharen Stueck, Ted & Fran Stueck and Anne Dake braved the heat, cleaning John Schrebring’s garden and next day planted annuals in gusty winds.  Watch the garden grow; it is located on 218 by the railroad tracks. Also, residents can look for the deer in the bed. Drive in and see the flowers in back.
