257th day – 108 days to follow
Fair and warm.
Picked another bushel of tomatoes up on the hill.
Mowed the lawn.
Mrs H and I went down on the Avenue and picked one bushel of wild grapes, about ¼ of what we got off the same vines.
She told me she that May Gallagher is coming back Tuesday.
Also that she is getting two new girls next week.
After supper I built a hen roost for Eleanor’s hens and put a door on for her.
Picked five more mellons.
They are getting a little smaller.
We ate the largest one this evening and we never had a better one and I am saving the seed to plant next spring.
