2005 Mount Dora Garden Tour Garden #5

The fifth garden on the 2005 Mount Dora Garden Tour was very different from a lot of Florida gardens as it included an extensive vegetable garden. Having an herb farm, I run across a number of vegetable gardeners, but overall, vegetable gardening is not nearly as popular in Florida as it is in many other parts of the country.

Two views of the organic vegetable and herb garden.

An intriguing greenhouse which the program said was made from recycled materials.

Another sky vine. These vines work best on an overhang where the flowers can gracefully drop down.

An arbor filled with bottle gourds.

A cute birdbath with a smiling snail. Must have just eaten a big helping of vegetables.

This was my favorite element in this garden: pots of herbs on vintage classical pedestals edging the deck.
