Friday, April 24, 1936

plesant all day
Harry, Aunty, and I cleaned door yard /\nearly all day
Harry sowed lime* on back yard-
Charles drawed up the wood and drew away one truck load of junk-
Clara came 10 p.m. tonight
Mother has been good today

Lime spread on a lawn

*Lots of yard work still happening. Harry was probably spreading lime to even out the pH of an acidic lawn. Here is some information about spreading lime for a great lawn: "Applications of lime on established lawns may be made at any time of the year, the most favorable time of the year being fall, winter, or early spring, in that order. If applied when the soil is too wet, it is difficult to obtain an even distribution."

Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
