The “Sitting Pretty” Gardening Contest was held Saturday morning.

The contest was held at the Knoxville Farmers Market in front of residents enjoying live music and seeing what the market has to offer. The event was sponsored by the Knoxville Federated Garden Club and featured cash prizes to the top three winners. Dixie Roorda took first place in the contest with her wedding style bench. Roorda who received a $100 cash prize tells KNIA/KRLS News she planted the flowers on Mother’s Day and found the church bench and dress and decided to go with a wedding theme. Roorda says, there were a lot of great entries and she says it must have been a difficult decision but she is glad she is the winner.
