GWL 3rd June 1917

We shall have new potatoes in a week or so now.  The ants ran away with nearly all the carrots; but the vegetable marrows are growing well.  If we are here this time next year we may get a marrow.  There are also about a dozen celery plants that are not yet dead.  This morning we had the devil of a mouse hunt in the kitchen.  This was the second in two days and honestly I think we must have killed nearly fifty.  Alas the small cats are too small for mice yet;  though mama ate three for tiffin.”

On this day Italy declared a Protectorate over an independent Albania.
