It is raining this morning but we sure need it to. Everything is so dry, the garden is just like dying, from heat and no rain. It rained almost all day & nite. Henry & family were over at Uncle Fred’s this afternoon and got some tomato plants to plant out this evening. They came here when they came back but they didn’t get out of the car. Papa was up town twice today. George Wagner & Werner Kammler were here this evening and looked at our little leghorns. Werner would like to buy some, he is going to let us know by tomorrow morning. Louis Millman was also here & looked at them. Today Pete Birkner fixed Steve Rennecker’s chimney for him. Papa asked a few this morning up town if they know of any one wanted to buy leghorn chicks. Bertille baked bread, coffee cake, cookies, today. Rosalia worked in the garden and also planted some flowers out and sowed some lettuce seed in the garden after the rain, so tonight we have some more showers and then it will start to grow.
