Bossier Parish Sheriff’s inmates have begun planting crops for the spring season at the “Pea Farm” in Plain Dealing.  It’s a yearly ritual that’s been going on since the Bossier Minimum Security Facility opened in 1995.  Each spring, inmates there plant potatoes, tomatoes, purple hull peas, corn, squash, onions, cucumbers, okra, and peppers.  Then, each summer, the crops are harvested and used to geed the inmate population at the parish’s three correctional facilities.
