I'm about 100 miles north of San Francisco in the Sonoma County wine country. Yup, have a vineyard. Nope, don't make wine. Just ten table grape vines but they produce almost 200 pounds every September. I'm on a quarter acre but happy to curl up in a small corner of it and use the rest for herbs, vegetables, flowers and fruit. I lived in cities until I got this property six years ago so I'm still learning. I'd love to hear from anyone who gardens in this climate -- microclimate, really -- and knows about composting, vermiculture, irrigation, heat and frost, flood and drought, how to manage all the many seasonal shifts and changes of this fertile area.
