Tuesday 8th September 1914

It was a very fine day. Wind not quite so strong, rain badly wanted. In the morning I sowed the following seeds in a box Nemesia, Aster Quilled German & Stock, Yen-weak fine mixed. Afterwards went down to the wharf, Mr Glass was going up to Auckland & I sent my boots up by him to be repaired, took him some violets & daffodils. In the afternoon I was helping Willie plant Potatoes between the apple trees in pig’s paddock.
