Saturday 19th October 1918

There was no rain to speak of to day, but it rained heavily last night and the ground was very wet so that I could not dig.  Willie was making appliances for the chickens.  As I could not dig or plant I was not idle.  I remarked the rose labels, applied liquid manure to the roses and put manure round them,  got firewood from the hill for the kitchen & my room,  collected up manure.
