I finished unpacking the pint cans this morning. Planted a little corn among the Plum trees and sowed some carrot seed there also. It rained some this forenoon. I was in hopes we are going to have another good shower, but is passed off. I sowed a box to late cabbage seed today. Went up town tonight before I had supper, and got the mail. I have been catching mice in the woodshed this afternoon, caught 5 so far and may have another before I go to bed. Took a pail of nuts over to the Neill’s tonight. The sweet potato plants I ordered of Child’s came to Mrs. Neill today. I did not hear from home today.
