Home, Hearth & Harvest (vol.3)
Plus: the mindful and marvellous "Meals in the Mail" gift guide
Ta da! Issue 3 of our Home, Hearth and Harvest e-journal is here for your reading pleasure, absolutely stuffed full of good things to bake, eat, grow, read and make.
How to read it
There are two ways to read this journal. You can either download it as a pdf, or read it as a flip-book on your screen.
(Note that there are a number of links in the journal this month - such as those to download the colouring templates, or to view and buy the items in the gift guide - and you will need to use the pdf version if you want those links to be clickable).
We’ve taken things up a notch or two in this issue, as a holiday gift from us to you. In fact, there are 88 pages of goodness to find inside, so we put a pause on the Weekly Dispatches just for this week, to give you time to relax and read it all.
This month you’ll find:
What to do and find in the garden and farmers’ market this month
Seasonal recipes for gifts and entertaining
A sneak peek at the letters and recipes coming up in the Weekly Dispatch
Five “Meals in the Mail” Christmas recipes, shared in their original formats
“Calm Christmas,” a 12-day guide to enjoying the festive season without feeling the chaos (including handmade decorations, tips for hosting Christmas meals, sustainable wrapping, self care, Christmas rituals and more)
Four festive colouring-templates, to make gift-cards or envelopes
A letter-lover’s guide to National Thank You Day, InCoWriMo, and a dispatch from the 1914 Christmas Truce
Eight pages of mindful and marvellous gift ideas
We hope you enjoy reading this journal as much as we enjoyed making it, and as always, welcome your comments, questions and emails. Also, we’d love to know if you make the recipes and mail-art inside - tell us how you get on!

Oh and ps. - fabulous news! You might remember we emailed you about a month ago about the new “Chat” feature Substack has created? This feature is now available for both iOS and Android users.
If you don’t know what this is, it’s basically, it’s like a private WhatsApp group where we can chat away together to our hearts’ content (not the whole world, just us, the friendly, like-minded Meals in the Mail family of subscribers and contributors).
Oh, the conversations we can have! To join in, you just need to download the Substack app on your ‘phone. It’s all free of course. Follow the prompts here.
Meals in the Mail is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support our work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
