Papa is plowing & harrowing the potatoe land this morning.  Fr. Grootens was here.  He wanted to use the truck to get some straw and our brooder.  So him & Frank got it.  He has 2000 little chicks.  He also has a new DeSoto coupe.  We planted 2 bu. potatoes this morning.  Papa took the team back out to Henry’s again he is going to help him sow oats out there today.  He was there for dinner.  This afternoon Rosalia had to go out to get him.  We have to turn our eggs twice a day now in the incubator.  Uncle Fred & Aunt Mary came up this afternoon.  She went to the sewing circle.  Tonight is farmers meeting at the new school hall, but none of us went.  Eggs are 18¢ today.  There was a lady here today & wanted to sell 3 flowers in a basket for 25¢.  I send her off.  She said she was selling them to support 5 small children & her father.  There was a man here wanted to take orders for strawberrie plants, & also a fellow from Waterloo & wanted to sell or advertising Skill Gas.  They sure have a time at Blackburns School this year the way Mrs. Ettling told Papa.
