29th June 1948: Giant rhubarb

29 Tues. Very cool, very dull, showers on and off all day but not much wind; very unpleasant. Bought fish locally in morning, in afternoon took a parcel to Food Office for Katie to get it stamped then took it to Post Office to be forwarded to Vienna; it contained food for Katie’s sister; they are half-starved in Austria. Also bought scouring powder, steel wool, potted meat and sausage. Gwennie called; gave her some stewed loganberries and custard. To Aunt Liza in evening, she wanted one stick of rhubarb to finish filling a jar; I took one huge stick weighing half a pound.
