Breaking into Forth Field

I encounter the toughest hay to date. Well fertilized and more than enough rain This field almost resembles a grass jungle. Been a long time since I have seen hay this high. Two rounds I gave up for the evening. Best I could do was first gear often stopping to let the rollers clear of wrapping hay a bit on the moist side. Here’s hopping this stand is a bit dryer tomorrow.

Good looking hay Fern. If every thing goes well I will finish baling the last of mine tomorrow. I baled some small squares and have to deliver them in the morning. Then another eleven acres to bale and that will be it for this go around. I have some of the best clover I have had in a long time and mor than enough hay for next winter. Maybe there will be a little extra cash this year if I can sell the next cutting. Like you I didn't see many rabbits either, a rat or two and that was about it

When I read your posts about farming, I always seem to learn something. You are a teacher and that is a rare thing to be.
I'm new at working soil and growing to enjoy it more each day. Reading your's and other's posts helps keep my interest alive.

Some much rain has made the hay around here near tough as nails. Some ay we're weeks behind. I figure maybe week/ten days. That's not bad. Just the awsome growth.
Get on it as early as ya can if you have had a lot of rain. I'm telling you!!

Hey Fernan,
We havent had as much rain as we need.Been kinda dry.We are probably still 4 or 5 inches under what we should be.Right now it is sprinkling outside.Poured some last nite and this morning,and calling for more.Goats came running up from pasture soaking wet.They don't like the water like the llamas do,and so they came running up in their separte little herds.It was funny!
Take Care and Have Fun!
