Weather fine & resumed hoeing & cultivating strawberries. Some heavy, but still spraying 6 tanks more on. Seems to be a fair crop of cherries, got a few plums but bullocks look light, and no pears at all.

June 13th: Finished spraying 16 tanks in all. Would take about 20 tanks if a crop of pears. No pears so only gave them a sprinkle & slight blunder; shower in the afternoon.

June 14th: Cloudy, looks more rain. Heavy & cultivating.

June 15th & 16th: Heavy hoeing & cultivating, warm in daytime but cool nights, nearly frost.

June 18th: Started to weed carrots, small rain after dinner and all night.

June 19th: Rained some more this morning. Cleaned up muck and cleaned tiles & drains after dinner. Everything flooded.

June 20th: Hoeing corn, tomatoes & strawberries. Pretty wet yet.
