5th May 1943: paid for 2 cwt of coal

5 Wed. Very mild, very dull, but it is calm at last - what a relief. To Trewins(?) to pay for the coals. 2 cwt @ 3/8 per  cwt. Also bought 3 Carters' Sunrise tomato plants @ 7 1/2d ea: planted them in afternoon. Planted out lettuces in evening then for a short cycle ride. Alan Spooner called with two wireless coils for me to see.
