So while the Dallas Morning News didn’t give Joe a chance at more fame with a front page picture – they did include a quote from Joe, where he shows off his mad knowledge of horticulture.  Check out the link below for the full story.

Nearby, Joe Potter, 3, is hoeing on the plot his family shares with the family of his 4-year-old pal, Ava Meierhofer.

“I like vegetables,” Joe said. “We are going to plant them all except for grass. Grass isn’t very good to grow or eat.”
