Making Hay

Well this has turned into a hay making week for us.  At this time of year if we get a stretch of 3-4 days of sun and no rain we have to take our last cutting of hay no matter how tall it is.  Yes, it would have been nice to wait another week or two on a couple of our fields, but then we take the chance of getting it dry . . . as a couple of our fields are low and we can get into some pretty foggy mornings where the dew doesn't come off until Noon or so.

I'll be glad to put this year's hay making season over.  With the drought, and now with three inches of rain, which surged the growth, it's felt like a roller coaster around here.
