YOW home, business winners

Judy Junkman and Allen Stork of 513 N. Wisconsin St., have earned the Top O’ the World Garden Club Yard of the Week award. Their house, built in 1882, is surrounded by gardens over five city lots. A disaster was turned into a boon for the garden when the water main broke. The rocks that were unearthed have been used in beds throughout the property, two old fashioned lilacs were moved to the new patio area and beds were started next to the house. Other gardens on the property include a beautiful, towering spruce, a large productive vegetable area and beds of many flowers circling the property line, sitting areas and house. In an attempt to keep their plants safe from deer Junkman and Stork put up multiple rows of string above their picket fence. Now some deer have figured out how to jump through the strings.
