6.4.40

Sharp frost last night. Beautiful still sunny day, turning rather cold again this evening. Dug some more. Frost has improved the soil considerably. Weeded the patch between the currants & the strawberries, & applied lime. (Paid Titley 6d for about 7-10 lb lime). After this has been turned in the patch can lie fallow till June, when it will do for winter greens. Sowed marrows & pumpkins in pots. NB. that marrows are in the pots nearest the road.

19 eggs. 1 double egg. Sold 2 score @ 2/- (reduced price). Total this week: 115.

  1. RAF Bomber Command ends its leaflet (“Nickel”) raids over German occupied Europe. Since September 3, 1939 about 65 million leaflets and “newspapers” have been dropped.

    I wonder if Blair (current age: 35) knows yet, that he’s leaving next month. I wonder what he’s going to do with all those eggs.

  2. I’m sorry, he’s 36.

    … not to mention his winter greens.
