Charlee-Rose at home in garden
CHARLEE-ROSE McDonald has dug up some luck this week to win one of The Northern Star's dirtgirlworld Get Grubby Giveaway packs.
The excited Wyrallah girl was happy to accept a dirtgirl prize pack containing pencils, colouring-in-book, DVD and CD.
Charlee-Rose said she loved gardening and had a huge range of fruits and vegetables sprouting up in her backyard, including radishes, carrots, peas, corn, zucchini and broccoli.
"It's really fun," she said. "I like getting my hands dirty in the garden."
The seven-year-old said she also had a good collection of herbs including rosemary, peppermint and basil, which she picked with her grandmother for home-made pizzas.
