  • 1790: July 15, 1790 – Continual gales all thro’ this month, which interrupt the cutting my tall hedges.
  • 1789: July 15, 1789 – We have planted-out vast quantities of annuals, but none of them thrive.  Grapes do not blow, nor make any progress.  The wet season has continued just a month this day.  Dismal weather!
  • 1787: July 15, 1787 – Mr White of Newton finds mushrooms in his fir-avenue.  Tremella abounds in my grass-walks.
  • 1786: July 15, 1786 – Made jellies, & jams of red currans.  Gathered broad beans.  Mushrooms begin to come in Mr Edmd White’s avenue, under the Scotch firs.  The cat gets upon the roof, & catches young bats as they come forth from behind the sheet of lead at the bottom of the chimney.
