Support your local farmers, yo! Three Stone Hearth does. I know, I'm the buyer for the kitchen.
But worth the wait!
I applaud Paul Wirtz for his commitment to grow asparagus. The Marin Master Gardeners have an excellent article on this topic, which might benefit readers who want to raise their own.
Caution-this is not a project for those who want instant gratification-it takes three years until you can actually harvest the crop!
Francis Coppola is revered as a director for movies he made decades ago.
Today, he's just another megalomaniacal jackass in a sea of Cheneys, Jacksons and Golly-burtons.
His 'rustic' destination in Geyserville feels like Sal Corleone embellished a bankrupt French amusement park, then when he couldn't run it, Sal the Loser handed it over to some corporate management stiffs.
By comparison, Vito or Michael would look out over the wealthy white-trash tourist clientele, then at Souverain's old mansards and the churlish supervisors...then one of them'd call Luca Brasi and have him break Francis's knees.
When the director of The Godfather finally begged for forgiveness, Luca'd run a 2' long 10ga needle iinto Francis' stomach, then watch FC deflate faster than a cheap balloon on a bbq.
