7.6.39.

Extremely dry & hot, but a little wind. There is fairly heavy dew at nights.
Planted out 2 bush marrows, putting tins over them. E. cut the lawn with shears & then with the mower, which Albert H.[1]  has sharpened (paid for sharpening 1/6). Continued sticking peas.
M. giving nearly a quart. Have sent for another goat, British-Alpine cross, kidded last month, £3.
9 eggs (plus 5 laid out = 14). Sold 1 score (2/-.)

 

[1] ‘H’ usually signifies ‘Old Hatchett’, so Albert H. may be another neighbour at Wallington, perhaps Albert Hollingsworth. Peter Davison

    “E. cut the lawn with shears”??!!?

    I hope they have a small lawn!

  2. Who. Who was sent? Surely, Eric wouldn’t send just anyone on such a crucial, cross-cultural mission to the Alps.

  3. Stephen says:

    At current production levels, and using today’s prices quoted on Wallington Commodities Markets, the hens will pay for the new goat in 43 days.

    Cut the lawn with shears, and mowed too? What is that goat doing loafing about all day???
