June 27th, 1894 thru June 28th, 1894

I will not be transcribing each entry since most of Bert's diary is pretty clear. You can read the original more easily by clicking on the image above to view a larger version. I will be including this paragraph, or something similar in each entry so that new readers will know they can click the image to enlarge it for easier reading. Also, there will be some links to the right of the page with relevant information that may be of interest. If you follow Bert's diary regularly, you can skip this paragraph. My notes will include the basics of what Bert talks about each day, along with my own personal thoughts, research, information gleaned from past or future entries, etc. If you have information or suggestions that may help my research, please e-mail me.

Wednesday, June 27th, 1894 - Bert declares it a "nice cool summer day", on which he did more planting work on the summer crop of buckwheat.  He does do chores as always, and "shuts up five sitting hens" to prevent them from trying to hatch eggs.

Thursday, June 28th, 1894 - This time a hot day, but more chores, and more buckwheat planting - this  time on E. Hanyer's place.  Not sure if this was working for E. Hayner, or if Russell Dye is maybe renting land from E. Hayner to grow his own crop?
