Continuing the cover crop conversation…

One of the best things about the blogosphere is that anyone can start a conversation, and as more and more voices chime in, it has the potential to evolve into something far more substantial and/or educational.

Earlier this week, we posted a short video about a common Napa Valley vineyard cover crop, mustard. Today, our friends over at Piña Napa Valley have taken that conversation to a new and far more enlightening level via a follow-up post on their blog. Here’s an excerpt:

Much of the mustard you see in the vineyards is an indigenous plant that reseeds itself. But many growers also spread their own blend of cover crop seed, that may or may not include mustard…I thought that I would expand just a bit on what cover crops are.

Do go check out the Piña blog, its got loads of fun and interesting information. And, if you like what you see, subscribe to it and/or grab the widget from our widget gallery.
