Thursday 15th October 1914

It commenced to rain in the middle of the night and rained steadily until after we were up, but the rain was not very heavy and has not moistened the roughly dug ground, and there  were a few slight showers during the day. Willie planted some Pumpkins in the farm orchard.

The “Kawau” made a round trip to day. I went down to meet her in the pm and Willie carried down a box of Eggs. I brought up a bag of sand.

I also went down to the village in the evening to get the mail and to attend the Library. There was a meeting of the Show Committee in the evening. Willie who is a member attended.

I sowed seeds of 4 varieties of Jamaica Cornflower in the same box that I grew the others in.
