February FRIDAY 10 1893

Fred and I have been working in the barn to day on account of stormy weather Have succeeded in geting our peas cleaned up of which we had only Seventeen bushells, as the final result of the years crop. We have fed some six or eight bushells however besides. Got started at cleaning up the clover-seed this afternoon also. Have been rather disappointed in the way it turns out.
