The Mead Got The Best Of Us

Friday, July 24, 2020


I had all the best intentions of this email being sent out last night, but then Andy and I decided that we had to start planning our wedding RIGHT AWAY, and to us that looked like staying up late brewing mead. Andy and I are getting married next summer and the only thing we know for sure is that there will be mead. Although, I suppose we can't even guarantee that because what if it's really good and we drink it all before the wedding?

Anyway, here's a short one for you because it's almost 5 and I still need to seed head lettuce! Other things I seeded today: a fall sowing of sugar snap peas and another row of green beans. Andy and I also started our winter garden this week. We've got turnips and rutabaga in the ground, and kale, collards, and chard seedlings. We'll be sowing beets and carrots next week, and have grand plans to have spinach, arugula, and corn salad all winter. All an experiment to see how far we can push the season.

The Harvest: green beans, zucchini, yellow squash, yellow grape tomatoes, head lettuce, salad mix, turnips, radishes, carrots, beets, kale, collards, rainbow chard.
Find us: Port Angeles Farmers Market, Downtown Transit Center, Saturday 10-2
Almost ready: Lots of beefsteak and Roma tomatoes with a nice blush on them. Also more arugula, tat soi, and hon tsai tai.

That's all for today! As always, thank you so much for supporting our farm and our dreams.

All the best from our tiny farm,

Melissa and co.
