Whidbey Island Veggie Garden Tour 2010

I'm really late in posting these photos! This tour was a month ago and I'm finally getting around to moving them off my camera to the computer. This tour was in the southern part of the island primarily around Langley (which is the cutest town if you ever visit the island)!

Two hour wait in Mukilteo to board the ferry! The rain started at this point which was a little bit of a disappointment as I was hoping for sunshine that day.

We stopped at the Farmer's Market and they had this cute outdoor shower for sale. You can order this and read about the builder HERE. It would be perfect by the beach!

Tomato Grow Operation.

Beautiful farmland.

Whidbey Island Wildlife.

This could feed a neighborhood!

Cute entrance to another vegetable garden.

Love the bright colors in the garden!

Thoughtful owners

Clever cutout on the door to the chicken coop

Bees are busy...

The founder of the kitchen shop Sur La Table had her vegetable garden on the tour and it was a spectacular raised bed garden! You can read more about her home/garden HERE.

Her home's entrance had huge pots filled with perennials. Very impressive entrance!

Her home had a long driveway with this cute fence lined with cheerful them!

The return ferry ride had a 5 hours wait so we decided to go around the island to Deception Pass.

on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

  1. What a quaint tour! I just loved the outdoor shower and daisy-lined driveway. You have quite an eye for photography. Perhaps a new career? =)
