     Our Display Garden and Nursery are amongst vineyards in the Dry Creek Valley.
Mission San Francisco Solano (in City of Sonoma)
In the early Spring the yellow of the blooming mustard is so intense it almost glows. It's hard to believe the early Spanish padres (1700's) planted mustard to create a path of gold, or simply grew mustard in their gardens for seasoning, and over the centuries, the invasive plant has found the Central to North Coasts to be most hospitable. Of the 23 missions the closest and most recent (1823) is Mission San Francisco Solano is where our mustard probably originates. This flowering museum 'exhibit' is one of the most fleeting sights you'll ever see . . . .
