At age 6, Jaxon Thornton has learned that patience pays off. In his case, it came in the form of a huge pumpkin! Jaxson, a student at Arnold Mill Elementary School, wanted to join the annual gardening fun and grow something in the garden space of a family friend in the Hickory Flat area.
On May 10, he planted pumpkin seeds, diligently watered them and checked their progress. His grandmother, Shawn Myers, shared these photos with us and said he really enjoyed the experience!
Jaxon’s parents are Kevin and Vanessa Thornton.
