Most of day overcast, heavy showers & thunder about mid-day. Weeded onions. Pricked out 35 carnations. The wallflowers planted on 11.7.39 about 3” to 4” high. One hollyhock which is coming into flower is white. There are therefore 4 colours (dark red, light red, pale pink, white) from the original dark seed. Peas are very good, much more than we can eat.
Last cwt. of corn finished this morning. Begun on 4.7.39, should by calculation have lasted to about August 10th, but the 8 pullets have been fed on it for the last 3 weeks, also to some extent the 6 next chicks. Full-o-pep bought at same time only about 2/3 gone.
11 eggs  (3 pullets? Evidently at least 1 pullet is now laying.)
 ‘Planted’ crossed out; ‘Pricked’ inserted.
 ‘8 eggs’ was originally written and changed to ’11 eggs’; presumably amended after the three pullets’ eggs were found. Peter Davison
