We spent our 4th of July weekend baling hay. The weather finally cooperated enough for us to cut the other 20 acres at Tucker Road. Well, kind of cooperated...Daniel was cutting hay in the rain. The weather report changed about 3 times an hour. We knew that we were short on time, so he cut Wednesday evening in the rain so that we would have a good full day of drying on Thursday.
We ended the weekend with 35 bales hauled home, sleeved and stacked by Sunday night. It made for a very busy weekend, but we were able to cross a huge item off of our to do list. We now have a total of 57 round bales. Only 18 round bales and 200 square bales to go.
Isaac spent Saturday helping neighbors with round bales of straw. He was very excited to come home and tell me how he was allowed to drive the truck and trailer around the field as they were loading bales. He has found himself another new job.....
What he didn't tell me was that he had to use a booster seat to reach the pedals.
When there is a will...there is a way.
We did get to watch fireworks (in case you think it is all work and no play around here). In fact, we watched fireworks twice!
Hello! I am Heather... the city girl turned mom to manure loving country boys. My husband and I both grew up in the city, but spent weekends visiting grandparents in the country. We are first generation farmers who learn best by almost always doing things the hard way. I hope you enjoy following along with our adventures down on the farm.
