Farmer’s jour­nal

Oton­abee farmer John Gra­ham Weir kept daily jour­nals from 1880 to 1925.

1888 Oct. 29, Mon.

In the forenoon I and a team were help­ing Decker thrash. In the af­ter­noon Robert Jack­son, James Galvin, James Duf­fus and I had a meet­ing to agree if pos­si­ble about mak­ing a wa­ter course across our re­spec­tive lots of land on the 12th Con­ces­sion. We did agree each to make their own and I to as­sist Jack­son with a team and two men one day and a man and team the sec­ond day, and to com­mence Wed­nes­day.

1888 Oct. 30

John El­liott came back about nine o’clock this morn­ing and went to plough. Af­ter break­fast I and Lov­ina went to Wil­lie Gra­ham’s with the four colts. When we came home there was a young man to hire. We made a bar­gain for $15 for one month's work. He com­menced at noon. Af­ter din­ner we were culling straw.

1888 Oct. 31

John El­liott and James Hunter and a team were as­sist­ing Robert Jack­son to make a wa­ter­course. Wesley Pat­ter­son and a team were plough­ing south of the G.J.R. in the new land. I was turn­ing sod and pick­ing roots.

1889 Mon­day Oct. 28 Yes­ter­day Robert and Is­abella Mitchell and Wil­lie Gra­ham and fam­ily and Ber­tie Gra­ham were here. Af­ter din­ner John El­liott went to plough in Field No. 6. Smi­ley was plough­ing in field No. 4, Ge­orge Scofield and I were pulling man­golds.

1889 Oct. 29

At noon John El­liott fin­ished plough­ing field No.6. He was only five and a half days do­ing thir­teen acres, the head lands ploughed and fur­rows filled in and ploughed eight inches deep. That is the best job at plough­ing I ever had done. In the forenoon Smi­ley was plough­ing in field No. 4 and af­ter din­ner he went to Duf­fuses thrash­ing. John El­liott and I fin­ished field No. 4 with two three-horse teams.
