7.8.39.

Finer. In the morning rather cold & a little rain, afternoon overcast & warm. Finished preparing ground for winter greens. Put slugs in prepared box to test what kind of foodstuffs they go after most. Yesterday found dead newt in the road, so they must be leaving the water now. A certain number of this year’s frogs about, about the size of runner beans.
9 eggs (1 small).

    What is the deal with the runner beans? Now they are a unit of measurement?

    That frog is both much larger than a bean and much smaller than a plant. What can George mean?
