Storms and scattered showers in early summer are a farmers heartbreak!
It’s now the end of June and we’ve only got two small fields of hay down and rolled.
On Father’s Day Eddie put down the first two small meadows of hay and stopped for fear of impending storms again in two days. On Monday he flipped it and let it dry, Heather raked it and Eddie got it rolled.
It took about an hour and you could tell from the tractor tires that the ground was wet. It would take a strong sun and some wind to get it dry.
They rolled up 27 bales on this small space that usually produces twenty 4×5 bales. Wednesday the other meadow went up and now it’s all baled, off the field and stacked tightly end to end along the driveway fence. It’s a start but we’ve got a long way to go and looks like tomorrow and Monday of this coming will be the only chance they’ll get another area down and rolled.
Mother Nature hopefully will be kind!
