I said that I would keep you posted as to how the hay making is progressing on the farm next to where I live, and I can report that conditions could really not have been better – hot, dry and sunny! Having turned the grass three times, the baler has done its stuff and the hay bales have all been taken off to the barn, leaving the fields bare.
What a difference to last year, when hay making was such an ordeal due to constant rain. Hopefully this easy grass harvest will go some way to erasing those bad memories!
