Charlie Cunningham stands in one of his lush gardens, filled with tomatoes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, peppers and sweet corn. Charlie is an ambitious gardener who takes pride in what he grows. The farm has been in the family for generations. In fact, Charlie was born in the rear room of the home southwest of Leopold.

It doesn’t take too many stops along Charlie Cunningham’s garden tour to figure out the Perry County man has a green thumb. He cares for a large garden, actually several gardens, behind his home off Old Indiana 37 southwest of Leopold. Rows of sweet corn are already waist high. They’ll mature later this summer and several families already have dibs on the roasting ears.
