Havent used any hay equipment since beginnin of June due to weather, I think we have a window starting saturday, I guess when I cut it will be cutting entire fields, and round baling with that New Idea round baler I bought. Im thinkin I did the right thing by buying that cause it is field ready, Id like to do some more small squares too, we will see.

I'm not going to have any hay this year. Last nights 20 hundredths is the first measurable rain we have had since late May.

i finally saw enough not-raining window to go up on the hill 4 miles away to do some hay. mowed 24 acres tuesday, tedded it weds, raked about 40% thursday, and round baled around it 2x and back and forth once to have a place to rake it to today. so, today it is overcast and drizzly with t-storms predicted for tonight. what else is new this miserable summer?
oh yeah, i'm doing the morning milkings all week, as the regular morning guy is on vacation. its the most (early) work i have done since i got hurt in sept. i'm whooped.
