Monday 12th October 1914

There were several small showers in the morning but not sufficient to do much good. I was working in the flower garden all day. I planted out alongside the wire netting fence 29 Sweet Pea plants that I raised in beef tins, I also sowed some Sweat Pea seed. In the pm I was preparing places for plants that I have ordered from Yates.

Willie was digging in the farm orchard and in the evening he went down for the mail and brought up a parcel of seedling plants for me which I had ordered from Yates’ by last Saturday’s mail.
