What's Happening in Wine Country

Lawns in spring

    Spring has sprung in Wine Country.  With an unusually wet May our flowers and grass have gone crazy.  Rich and his crew have whipped the lawns into the best shape we have seen in years.  Our underground drip irrigation has been a challenge but they have risen to meet it.  It allows us to water our lawns with much less water (read eco-friendly) without sprinkling your RV.  BUT!!  we do have to be careful about putting stakes, awning spikes and pet screws in the lawns or you might wake up with a lake at your site.  Memorial Day was huge at the park with another great BBQ.   
    My perennial favorite, local asparagus, is in full production and extremely plump this year.  Stop in at the Saturday Farmers Market and get the freshest asparagus available.  We are also looking forward to fresh cherries.  Cherries will be available in just a couple of weeks.

Deb & Rich's Corner
    Today, Memorial day, we stop and give thanks for our brave men and women who serve and have served this great nation here and throughout the world.  Our special prayers and thanks go out to all those and their families  who have given the full measure of sacrifice so that we might live in freedom.
    Our busiest weekend of this year wraps up a very busy and exciting beginning to our 2010 travel season.  We are tracking ahead of last year with everyone wanting to get out and enjoy the wonderful experiences the wineries and Prosser have to offer. Aside from the usual attractions in the area this weekend, the pool and spa were extremely popular with our guests for their end of the day relaxing. A beautiful mid 70's weekend provided many opportunities for outdoor activities or just lounging around with a good book.
    With reservations trending up, make your plans now and book early. The wineries are in full swing with new releases and new varietals. Our restaurants and shops are also in full swing and the weather is great.

Love Quilting?
 Every Tuesday a wonderful group of local ladies gather together in our south meeting room and make the most amazing quilts.  I haven't ask them, but I am sure they would love to have you join them.  Bring your sewing machine and quilting materials and show them what you've got.
Recipe of the Month by Rich

Bobby's Perfect Burger       
Photo by Steve Giralt
Burger by Steve Giralt

Shape 6 ounces of 80 percent lean ground beef chuck into a uniform patty, no more than 3/4 inch thick (don't overwork the meat). Make a depression in the center with your thumb so the burger won't bulge; the indent will rise as the patty cooks. Preheat a grill or cast-iron grill pan to high. Brush the burger with canola oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until golden brown and slightly charred, turning once (7 minutes for medium-rare). Avoid pressing with a spatula! Add cheese for the last minute of cooking.

Spice Rub - Bobby coats his patty with a rub before grilling:


  • 1 tbsp ancho chile powder

  • 2 tsp Spanish paprika

  • 1 tsp each dried oregano, ground coriander, dry mustard, ground cumin and kosher salt

  • 1/2 tsp pepper

  • 1/2 tsp ground chile de arbol

rub generously on each burger
 Shop at Bobby Flays for great BBQ sauce
