We harvested the carrots on the left side of tunnel 2.
We keep harvesting fresh veggies in the morning for the shop.
We opened up the food forest again for the ducks, now with the green manure cover germinated & established, the ducks are able to graze & maintain the living cover.
We cleaned out & replaced the straw in the duck coop.
We received a huge donation of klimmop (ivy) to the chicken coop compost heap from our neighbors trimming their hedges. Thanks guys!
We are gifted with the presence of a single little chick, now discovering their world with the help of their protective & caring mother.
We seeded spinach & salad & parsley in the greenhouse with a light mix of compost.
We made delicious fresh grape juice from the overripe grapes in the closed tunnels, & there’s still more to come!
We weeded closed tunnel 2.
We harvested phacelia seed from right side of open tunnel 4.
We harvested parsnip seed from last year’s parsnip, taking note at the extended period of weeding it takes to let plants go to seed & not get overwhelmed.
We harvested the potatoes from the right side of open tunnel 5 & then seeded phacelia & scratched it in.
We noticed the lack of place to put our abundance of musical instruments in the new house & made a guitar rack, with a little help from our friends (& recycled material!). Thanks Alex & Antonio for the the technical advice!
We received from Harri this week: figs, a beautiful wood stove, & an old broken coffee machine that we tried to fix but wouldn’t budge. Thanks Harri for the generosity!
We shuffled the open short beds at the Hei.
We also made fries from our tasty fresh potatoes. Yummm…

Ivan helped us fix more electricity problems around the farm. Thank you Pishti!
Martine made us a wonderful courgette soup. Thanks Martine!
We held a permaculture evening with Niels to give an introduction to some themes in permaculture & share a few of our insights & lessons from mistakes along the way including gardening, social dynamics, & life in general. Thanks everyone for being there & sharing!
(As you can probably tell, we are very grateful on the farm this week. It’s been quite the blessing. Thanks for reading the newsletter & sharing this journey with us!)
