I too, have found this to be a delightful program. One of the more interesting features is the cultural and climatological differences between the USA and UK. Seems like every episode that I have seen has had to deal with rain of some sort. One almost wonders if they plan it that way so as to show off Charlie's assets...
But torrential downpours aside, It always amazes me that the gardens are so small. I would be hard pressed to park my compact car in many of them! I guess we North Americans are spoiled by having so much space to work with.

Nonetheless, the show is entertaining and I never have to worry about the kids watching. Especially interested is our 17-year-old boy. I know he is interested in the agricultural aspect but can't help wondering if Charlie has something to do with it...
