Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I sowed some more carrots and planted some corn this morning, then I hitched up Jimmie and plowed and dragged a small strip of ground for more garden.  I took the drag back to Mr. Case’s and went round by the quiet mill and watered Jimmie.  Went over to Neill’s and got my tomato plants and set them out.  It has showered several times this afternoon driving me in from work, but is grand for plants just set out.  I put out the sweet potato plants this evening.  I dug around the pear and plum trees this afternoon.  Called Louis Johnson in and gave him a pocket full of nuts.  Practiced writing a little while it is raining.  Went to the spring and got a pail of water tonight.  Am staying at home this evening.
