|The cover crop is about to be mowed, you can see how high it is -- perfect habitat for good predator insects!|
We also walked the winery's Don Miguel Vineyard, in Russian River/Green Valley. Soon we will mow the cover crop, after it's gone to seed so next year most of it is self-seeded.
Unfortunately it was only me, Bonita, who went both days with Mom -- Chico had to stay because he just had leg surgery for a torn ligament. He looked so longing when we left him at Mom's office on his leash... :-( He has 10 more days of rest to go, and won't be able to run for another 2 months. What a bummer! But we give him lots of TLC so he is not too unhappy -- and many licks!!
At the Don Miguel Vineyard, I listened attentively to Zach as he explained to me how important cover crop is, while Ventura looked on approvingly
