The rain came early Monday morning but it didn’t keep people from being early bird shoppers at opening day of the Pike County Agriculture Academy ‘s Annual Plant Sale at Goshen High School.

“We didn’t have as many early morning shoppers as we usually do but we had a good number of people and they came to buy,” said Cody Eiland, Ag Academy instructor “When the rain stops, we are looking for shoppers to come out because we have a good selection of plants  and at good prices.”

The ag academy students have worked throughout the growing season in an effort to make the annual plant sale a success.
