Tuesday 2nd October 1917

It was a fine day. I dug sufficient ground in the farm orchard to sow in a row of peas. I opened out a trench and put into it cow & fowl manure, and blood & bone & superphosphate mixed and then covered it in ready for sowing, but the ground was rather wet for making the drill for the seed. Willie was re-fixing the separator in the store. In the evening I went down to Archie Dunning and spent a very pleasant time at cards.
