Thursday, February 12th, 1863

To day the boys are still at work on the fence around the field in front of the house and in making a large wagon gate. The little woman [Margaret Hall Stewart nee Hall] & myself are at work in the garden setting out apple trees, grape & fig cuttings and in planting vegetables. Sam Sharp ground 24½ bushels of corn. weather cloudy with occasional showers of rain & rather cold.
