June MONDAY 17 1895

Jim and I have been hoeing corn in the garden by the road to day. Got our potato crop hoed also, by night. There seems to be no present indication of rain; but everything except hay seems to be growing notwithstanding. Awfords have finished cuting the clover-field back of their house for the first crop hoping to get a second crop for seed erelong.
