27th March 1947: Have some madeira, my dear*
27 Thur. Very cool becoming rather mild, dull, rain on and off all day but less wind. In morning bought flour & a nice madeira cake, hop manure, granulated charcoal, paraffin, and fish, oh, and a paper locally. Sawed off a length of timber and painted one end to make a fence post. Prepared some sifted compost of fine earth, hop manure, Rito and charcoal. Filled a pot with it and planted Bees, Stonors’ Dwarf Gem tomato seeds. Sowed cress seed in a box. Lightly pruned the roses – to be cut back hard later on. A small amount of work rebuilding the radio-gram.
