George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 12 June 1769]

12. Went over all my Wheat at Muddy hole and at Doeg Run & found it at both places good and promising, and entirely clear from every appearance of Rust.

I also found that the Straw at the lower joints was turnd, & turning yellow—that the blade was putting on a yellowish Hue—and that the head was in general grey—& turning yellowish the grain being mostly plump and the departments strutting with the Ripening Corn.
