And So It Begins

The extra dry May add June has had an effect on the grass hay fields. The grass is shorter than normal not as thick, it is also ripening faster than usual.

Tractor mowing hay field.In a normal year, hay season would start closer to the end of the month but we have gotten a few of the smaller fields cut early. Mike started mowing on Thursday and by Sunday we had started picking up bales.

Strong gusts of wind occurred before we had the chance to get the rows baled into hay. The windrows were tossed around the field willy-nilly. It made for some interesting driving to try to pick up all the clumps that were scattered to and fro.
