In all this talk about the vineyards, I keep forgetting to feature our “Insectarium”. These are plantings of bee and bird friendly native plants designed to draw natural pest eradicators according to Biodynamic principles. Here is a bank of Yarrow, with some Hummingbird Sage off in the distance, on the lower slope of the upper vineyard. So far, these guys seem to be doing their job. Ain’t no bad bugs on our vines.
About The Author
Although I'd like to think of myself as a rootin', tootin', wine-makin' cowgirl, I currently only live in Sonoma part-time. Mostly I'm on freeways between San Jose and Sonoma. With two yapping terriers in crates behind me. We try to enjoy both places and points in between. Which will explain why my post subjects are all over the map.

A Yank. A Brit. Two Terriers. A Vineyard. And a Dream.
Being the true-life adventures of two city kids and two spoiled terriers as they transition to a life of winemaking and organic farming in Sonoma. You know Green Acres? It’s like that.
