Avery Island Gardens

There is a large garden on Avery Island, part of the Tobasco plant. The “Island” is not really an island at all but is on top of a mound of salt. This salt is used in the production of Tobasco Sauce and the deposit is believed to go as deep into the ground as Mt. Everest is high! That is a lot of salt! The gardens are accessible by car which was a good thing today considering the cool temperature. It is the wrong season for the gardens but they were very nice anyway.
