Thursday 7th December 1916

It was a very hot day. The Schneidermans were splitting posts. Henry was branding and altering some calves in the morning, after that he, Mr Phipps & Carpenter were pulling foxglove. I was working in the garden, I sowed 2 rows Oxheart Carrot next to the one I sowed yesterday, also prepared some ground ready for sowing beet.
