Like his father, 5-year-old Emmitt Cox grows pumpkins.
The household grew so might gourds final yr that they did not know what to do with all of them.
It was Cox who instructed they arrange a roadside stand.
He earned $400 that was donated to Toys for Tots.
Sadly, Cox was unhappy to report that this yr’s harvest wasn’t as bountiful.
“A number of the seeds didn’t develop — not a lot rain,” he mentioned.
“He had talked about his pumpkin cash and I mentioned if you wish to donate a few of it that is completely superb,” Emmitt’s mother Anna Cox mentioned. “And straight away he mentioned, ‘nope I will donate all of it.’ If a 5-year-old can put others earlier than himself, possibly all of us can.”
Emmitt Cox needs to donate the $100 earned from this yr’s crop to an area church.
He is enlisting the assistance of his youthful brother to assist harvest future pumpkins.
