Charlie's Garden

With age comes a garden in the Gentle household. Rob has had a spot in the corner of the yard for the last couple of years. Charlie started his garden last year. We're currently working on a plan for Jack's. Rob selects his seeds with Mike in the spring. After being encouraged by his mom, Charlie agreed to a perennial style garden. He didn't reap much last year since the plants had to establish themselves. But this year, he's cut a few asparagus stalks and his first berries are almost ready. With a little luck, Charlie should be able to pick red, black, and golden raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, rhubarb, and gooseberries.

Gooseberries should be ready next week.
