14th May 1945: sevenpence-halfpenny 'Money' tomato plants
14 Mon. Rather cool, very boisterous and mostly cloudy. Bought fish
at Merton. Bought seven tomato plants @ 7½d ea. locally: the variety is
“Moneymaker”. Planted four of them. Gwennie and Laurie called. Made one of the
blank notes of the organ to play: there are several others to put right.
