(KMOV.com) – A garden sits on the grounds of the Lincoln County Jail and serves to feed inmates.

The Lincoln County Sheriff recently posted photos on Facebook showing the garden.

Inmates are eating fresh salads and zucchini most days. The garden is costing only 70 cents per plate each day.

Before the garden, each meal cost tax payers close to $1.50 per plate.
