Too hot to do much in the garden. Earthed up early potatoes.
We are changing the hens on to Full-o-Pep, which is somewhat cheaper than Clarke’s laying mash. Also getting corn etc. by the cwt., which effects a small saving. NB. That 1 cwt. each of Full-o-Pep & mixed corn begun today, & at 3 lb. a day of each should last till about July 12th. Great trouble with the broody hen, which at feeding time tries to rejoin the others. When caught & put into the coop, however, she goes back to her eggs.
Many turtle doves about.
11 eggs.

    You can’t make this stuff up!

    After a month of so of Full o Pep, the hens will be laying four times a day.
