BOX ELDER, S.D. (AP) - Officials at the Pennington County Jail say their unique “jail garden” produced about 14,000 pounds of fruit and vegetables this year.

The garden is a plot of land in Box Elder that’s tended to by inmates from the Pennington County Jail.

The produce is donated to area charities. Some of it is sold to offset food expenses for jail inmates.

Officials say the produce harvested this year was about four times as much as last year.
