A little girl from Artesia has proven she’s really good at growing cabbage. 

Third grader Chloe Aguilar of Yeso Elementary grew a 30-pound cabbage from a seedling this year, winning ‘Best in State’ in ‘Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program.’ 

The honor comes with bragging rights and a $1,000 savings bond to put towards her college education. 

This year, more than 1 million third-graders competed across 48 states.
