My backyard butterfly garden in Sebastopol

"I firmly believe, from what I have seen, that this is the chosen spot of all this earth as far as Nature is concerned."
--Luther Burbank 1849-1926 speaking of Sebastopol (Sonoma County California)

The 2 trees and birdbath were prior to my efforts.

Can you believe this is only 1 year later?

Fall's Harvest 2007     The pickles were delicious! The gophers didn't get my potatoes this year. I sort of forgot to harvest the onions, but they did well too. Check out my adventures in backyard composting here.
