Each year during the otherwise dreary months between January and March, wild mustard fields begin blooming and vineyards begin turning a vivid  yellow and brightens those winter days.

According to legend, a Franciscan missionary spread the seed while planting missions throughout California. Now, whether wild or planted, the mustard  appears in vineyards just till bud break, when it is turned under to provide nutrients for the vines.

Alexander Valley, Guerneville Road in Santa Rosa and Hwy. 128 in Napa County have especially nice fields of yellow this month! Enjoy a little color to brighten up your winter!
