This is the time to begin reaping the harvest from all of our gardens and maybe a good time to enjoy this picture of a garden from long ago. The title is Maddie’s Garden and it depicts 3 neighbors working in the garden. In the left front corner is Hoyle Hanson, he appears to be hauling brush to tie up the peas. Behind Hoyle is Madge Coombs, and the focus of this picture is Maddie Sargent. I believe this was her garden and that is her home in the background.
