18.10.39

Rather cold, with some sharp showers. Could not do much out of doors. Cleaned up some of the path & put in some stakes for the blackberries. Two more stakes are needed.

7 eggs. Sold 20 @ 3/- score.

    Yesterday “not cold”, today “rather cold”. Soon – just plain “cold”!

    we all know it takes a while for the coldness to stabilize as such, and for ourselves to get accustomed to it. even then, when every day is cold, you still have “bitter cold”, or “really cold”, etc. no two days are ever alike!

  4. Has anyone noticed if the selling price of the eggs has risen or fallen?

    Today is Wednesday and German aircraft reportedly approached Scapa Flow, the base of the British Home Fleet, but no bombs were dropped. The planes were engaged by anti-aircraft fire.

    Prime Minister Chamberlain announces that 8 German aircraft have been shot down, and Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty, claims that one in three of the German submarine force have been sunk.

    I found an article by a poultry farmer in Purtington; September 1939.

    JL3 – I found the long article by the poultry farmer ambulance driver in WWII interesting. Thanks for the link.

    Egg prices have been rising. It seems like only yesterday eggs were 2/- the score. Egg production has been rising very recently. Here in the NW US, all our hens have molted recently, are now finished. Maybe his have done the same.
