17.4.39.

Rather chilly, some wind, occasional showers.
Buds of the walnut beginning to open. Lettuce seeds sown on 12.4.39 are germinating. A few tulips almost open.
Ten eggs. (57 this week.)

    “Buds of the walnut beginning to open. Lettuce seeds sown […] are germinating. A few tulips almost open.” – a nice bit of “found poetry”, there…

  4. Barnaby says:

    I see the Orwell Diaries are currently in the lead in the People’s Voice award, and righlty so. Although the great man has not perhaps been at his riveting best since he got back to Southwold.

  5. The Author says:

    One of the best blogs ever.

    “We now have 26 hens, the youngest about 11 months. Yesterday 7 eggs (the hens have only recently started laying again.)” ~~ 12.4.39

    I apologize for misspelling your name.

    Using the Holmes/Poirot Paradigm, I have deduced that this post is, in reality, a list of secret ingredients:

    1. Rather chilly
    2. some wind
    3. occasional showers.
    4. Buds of the walnut beginning to open.
    5. Lettuce seeds sown on 12.4.39 [which] are germinating.
    6. A few tulips almost open.
    7. Ten eggs.

  8. Who would have thought you could win a prize for a series of entries reading “One egg.”

  9. Steve says:

    As I recall, one post of Type I (“one egg”) got 53 comments. He/they’ve earned it!

  10. Steve says:

    Just registered and voted. Orwelldiaries is…dead last. Come on, people!

  11. Promote Poultry Products! Spam your hippest friends on any/all of the various avant-garde social networks. Insist that they vote for George Orwell in ’09!

    Don’t wait,” M. insists in a plaintive, post-mortem bleat, “don’t delay. Do it before shift change. Think of the hens.”

  12. VOTE ORWELL
    NOT OR WELL
