Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

COALSTOUN Lakes young­ster Leah McNaughton set up her own plant stall be­side her mother at the spring mar­kets on Satur­day.

The seven-year-old has al­ways had an in­ter­est in gar­den­ing and de­cided when the mar­kets first started up she was keen to have a stall and sell her toma­toes.

Leah said she loves cherry toma­toes and that’s why she grows them.

But when her mum Lau­ren started her own gar­den busi­ness, Hope Farm, Leah de­cided she would pot up her own suc­cu­lents to sell and keep her toma­toes for her­self.

At the July mar­kets she sold all she had pot­ted up while on Satur­day with three times the num­ber Leah had another sell-out day.

Leah said when the fam­ily go to other mar­kets she checks out the stalls and buys cacti she doesn’t have.
