you sign up. If you want more than a few ounces of cheese, please sign up for that, too. We require pre-payment
for the goats milk and cheese before we order it. We will have a few packages of the cheese every week.
Ducklings came up to the barn following a chicken this morning. She probably
went broody and sat on a nest of duck eggs. They are now in a brooder box. The chicken had the demeanor of "I don't
know why these things are following me!" The ducklings are safely in a brooder, now.

We're planting. The rain, over 11 inches I am told since March 1, isn't helping us get into the garden, but
where we can, planting is happening. In the High Tunnel and the Hoop Houses, lots of things are happening. Some
are great, like the amazing radishes that are developing. Other things are sad, like the turnips bolting before growing the
turnip root. Those will be torn out and salad mix transplanted, as well as more radishes and green onions, and other
tasty delights. Spinach will also go in where the turnips come out.
The garlic is gone. The onions
are gone. We soon will be needing volunteers to help plant this year's onions, sunchokes, garlic greens, and potatoes.
The potato seed ships on Monday. We have some Ozettes that need to be in the ground, too.
Saturday, we had a
great day at the Poulsbo Farmers Market, and people came out the our Farm Store, too. It's fun to come out and see
the chickens, ducks, and geese. The cattle made an appearance across the fields, and of course the dogs barked and the
cats tried to take all the petting they could.
The forecast is for warm weather starting on Monday. If
you feel like getting your hands in the Earth, let us know. There are always veggie rewards involved.

womanning the store. Marilyn will be there, too.
