The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office has started the groundwork for a garden  project that involves inmate labor. Sheriff  Whetsel said county jail inmates will tend the garden which is behind the department's  substation at SE 29 and Midwest Blvd. in Midwest City. Whetsel said crops will be rotated so that the garden can be productive most of the year. <strong>JIM BECKEL - THE OKLAHOMAN</strong>
