Putnam County has been the proud home of Johnson Nursery & Garden Center for more than a century. The Johnson’s have owned and managed the family business for more than 100 years and been voted among this country’s best for the last 7 years. Recently the Cookeville Rescue Mission was blessed to receive 48 tomato plants from Johnson’s Nursery & Garden Center as the Mission looks to put in a summer garden. The family gave us a variety of tomatoes and residents are already eager to harvest and taste. The Mission will gladly accept other left over plants, seeds, compost or dirt. Whether you are super-busy or a procrastinator, when it comes to gardening, it’s never too late to sow something!
