Either push cultivators or wheeled seeders, I cannot tell which. The auto could be a 1932 Ford?



  Caption reads, a field of  our famous strain of gypsophilia Paris  (Marrer)?  This is our Oceano field at foot of Mesa.


  These appear to be delphiniums, Oceano field.
 
  Old Routzhan home, on our ranch #10 on Huasna Road. This house was built, I think, by Spencer Records in about 1882. We lived in this house 1960-1963 while our new home was being constructed. This house was torn down in 1972, the redwood boards that it was built with were given to John Loomis of Tar Springs  Ranch. It is my understanding that the saloon at  the ranch was built with this wood. We currently live in a house on this site.
