FARM STORE SATURDAY

Way south of Poulsbo is our Farm Store.  We're close to Bremerton and Silverdale.  Almost directly East of Bangor.  We are at 1146 NE Madison Rd, Poulsbo, WA.  Come by and visit with us.  See the ducks, chickens, and geese.  It's a beautiful day at the farm.  We will have veggies, meat, as well as Goat Milk cheese, honey, and pickled veggies from Purdy Organics.  

Open Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.

11:32 pm pdt

Cliff will be at the Poulsbo Farmers Market Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The weatherman predicts mild temperatures, so be sure to go on out and buy your week's groceries.  Cliff will have frozen chickens, and veggies.  The veggies will be tomatoes, Chard, Salad Mix, Braising Mix, Radishes, and Culinary Herbs.  Some of the last leek flowers will be there. There is a delicious leek flower sauce recipe from last week's newsletter for you to take, too. In this weather, get a few sprigs of chocolate mint (it's a strong mint flavor), to add to ice tea, or make a mint ice tea. Very refreshing.

In this hot weather please take care to drink enough water and have water and light food available for yourself and your animals.

We’re having a heat wave. Not a tropical heat wave, but on Friday, with the high humidity, it was very muggy. This heat wave will continue for at least the next 10 days. There is hot weather predicted for this week.


While the heat may be hard on you, it can be fatal to the animals. Not only pets and livestock, but the wild animals, too, suffer. Birds especially are in greater danger from a lack of potable water. Bird baths provide a good place for birds to drink, but if you don’t have a bird bath, shallow plastic or ceramic sheets or basin like the saucers that you set potted plants in, will work. The water needs to be shaded since it can heat to well over 100°F in a few minutes of direct sunlight. It is best to avoid using metal for waterers since they can get very hot and injure birds’ feet. Make sure to provide thin syrup for hummingbirds. A 1 part sugar to 4 parts water is a good mid-summer mix. You can either boil the mixture or let the sugar dissolve into solution slowly. Cool to air temperature because hummingbirds cannot feel heat in the beaks and can easily scald their tongues, which will cause them to die. Always use sugar. If you use raw sugar, you will need to cook it.

Bees need water.  Put water for bees in a shallow dish, such as a dish for a potted plant.  Put stones in the dish and fill it with water around the stones.  Watching bees drink is quite interesting.


Squirrels and other small animals need water, too. Just because you may not like them does not mean that they have no place in our ecosystem. If there are no rodents, predation on cats and small dogs increases. The big birds, such as eagles and hawks, and the larger predators eat rodents.


Protecting our environment is not just protecting ourselves. As stewards, we need to protect the wildlife, too.

This is just an FYI, but we are not accepting new CSA members for the next few weeks.  Renewals are welcome.  This is so that we can provide for our current members, the Farmers Markets, and our Farm store.
