Current Page Transcription [edit] [history]

May FRIDAY 10 1895

Started at geting plum trees this forenoon. Found them in fairly good condition, the fibrous roots were rather dry and shriveled up however. Succeeded in geting something over twenty set out through out the day. It rather tedious hard work to set out fruit trees in our old sod, and our has to be so very particular about it. Had a short visit from our minister this evening.

May SATURDAY 11 1895

Continued to plant out plum trees this forenoon most of the time. Rain fell part of the time preventing work. We washed sheep this afternoon with several of our near neighbors. Towards night it began to be cold. We seem likely to have a cold spell now of an uncertain length of time. Went out to Dover this evening after a couple of tree boxes, also some necessaries.
