Dor took Jimmie and started for Robins, down in the edge of Manistee County. I planted fodder corn among the peach trees. I rested at 11 o’clock and picked strawberries for dinner, finished planting after dinner. Kate took the baby and went over to see Jessie Neill awhile this afternoon. I picked some strawberries and took down to Mr. Hubbell’s and traded them for 18 nice tomato plants. I set out some of them but the gnats and mosquitoes drove me in to the house, and I was not free from them there.
