Beautiful still, sunny day. Last night not at all cold. Cannot make sure whether when shallots spring out of the ground it is of their own accord or partly done by the pigeons. Sometimes they are about 1’ from where they were planted. Dug 2 rows of the new patch, turned the compost heap, limed another patch, added one more sackful of dead leaves. [Total on facing page: 7.]
One hen is definitely broody.
