31.5.39.

Fine & warm, but strikes very chilly as soon as the sun begins to go in. Tomatoes (protected from the sun with sacking) are O.K. A few French & runner beans showing.
M’s mate no good. When bringing her back found she had not been milked since taking her there. (ie. 48 hours) & her udders were very distended. Milked her & obtained a quart, which seemed not soured or otherwise unsatisfactory. Do not know whether this will put her milk-yield back.
17 eggs (sold 50 at 2/- a score).
Saw a white owl this evening.

    I think he probably meant a barn owl, tyto alba, rather than a snowy owl which would be cause for more than a throwaway comment like that in the south of England. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barn_owl

    The price of eggs seems to be going up. Maybe better marketing, or the word is spreading. “That skinny dude Blair has eggs, and if you ask he’ll loan you his goat!”

  3. M. objects to being objectified, in case anybody is, like, interested and asks, “Has anyone seen the udder balm?”

    My room 101 is full of eggs.
