Mayflower, Day by Day - Tuesday, 7 September 1621

Planting and construction continue.  By the middle of November, there were seven homes arranged along the central street, and there had been a reasonably plentiful harvest, enough to get them through the winter (or so they thought).  While some crops prospered, many of the seeds that they had brought from England did not do as well: “our barley indifferent good, but our peas parched up with the sun.”  The unexpected arrival of 35 extra mouths to feed, also reduced their rations to almost starvation.
