Sunshine Gardens in Encinitas
Sunshine Gardens is a plant nursery with a collection of shops in a fun, rambling outdoor setting. Betty's Pie Whole serves sweet pies and also savory hand pies. We stopped there first and had a coconut cream pie (not common in San Diego). Twigs is a florist and garden accessory shop where I bought three sunflowers. North County Olive Oil has a wide range of flavors. (Jalapeno-infused is my favorite.) There are koi fish for sale and a wide range of plants, especially succulents. There are resident chickens, goats, quail, finches, doves and a tortoise. It's fun for the whole family!
