Well I guess that's what you're supposed to do when the sun shines!Looks like a LOT of work, but as someone who eats things that eat hay, I'm grateful someone is out there doing it!
Thanks, Crabby! And, hopefully, the sun will keep shining until we're finished!
Hay, Baggie! That last shot is lovely.
Thanks, Hil! That's what's left of the hay from last year. We will soon be stacking more to fill it up again.
(Oh, and how funny is it that you were looking at my blog whilst I was looking at yours?)
Good photo essay on haying. So glad you got the sunshine to do it.
Thanks, cousin! Keep your fingers crossed the sun will continue to shine on us!
Ah, the race against the coming rains. Just like the generations before, it ties you to the past.At least you have more machines to help than they did!Wishing you good luck and more than enough bales this season.
Thanks, messymimi! Your comment is spot on - I am soooo glad we have the modern equipment we have!
Why so it is! Next weekend is a wedding for our family, and f kept suggesting a picnic in the park. What I thought was, "Are you crazy? It'll be 100 degrees!" but what I said was, "It'll be the start of harvest and the bride has allergies." ;) They are getting married in the Palouse region -- rolling wheat fields that look like sand dunes from a distance.
Good save, Karen! Is this your son's wedding? (I'm so out of touch.....)
In about two weeks, as hot and dry as it's been, it will be time for the second haying here. Sometimes the second cutting is as late as early September, but not in weather like this. When my father was in the Coast Guard during the war, one of his shipmates was also a country boy--odd for 1943 that most of their crew were from the city--and when they wanted to talk about something without those nearby knowing what, they would refer to the object (or person) as a left-handed mowing machine wrench.Mary Anne in Kentucky
Mary Anne - that is odd that they were the only country boys. The city boys never caught on?
Love the last shot sis. I am glad that you have modern equipment with which to hay also. Let the sunshine...
Thanks, sis. I just happened to snap that one as I was coming back from the hayfield - lucky timing.This spate of thunderstorms has put a stop to the haying for the last couple of days, but things are supposed to clear up soon, and we'll be back at it.
that final shot begs to be framed.
BL, they weren't the only country boys on the LST, but the city boys way outnumbered them!Mary Anne in Kentucky
