It was a very fine day. Wind SE. Willie was flat hoeing between the Potatoes in the garden & in the pig’s paddock, I was loosening & breaking lumps round the potatoes & round the young apple trees. I got firewood, also soil from the other side of the hill, planted 2 Verbenas. Went down to the wharf in the afternoon when the steamer arrived, 2 big horses and a dray came down for Archie Dunning to be used on his contract for carting metal.
