Doing chores at -4° this morning.
Trying out a canvas painterly effect on a photo of the barn…
Despite a relatively dry June, this July has turned out to be a hard one for haying, with the weather guessers being wrong most of the time. I finally decided to cut the larger field and go with whatever weather we got.
I reseeded nine acres of alfalfa this Spring, using oats as a nurse crop. Since the boys are married and in their own homes now, I drop-bale and pick the bales up later. It’s always scenic with the field dotted with hundreds of small squares.
My Hesston 6400 broke down partway through cutting hay this month, so I dug out my old sickle bar mower and hitched up to the 8N. After making a few adjustments, it did a great job cutting!
