2013 hay crop

2013 hay crop

August 24, 2013

This is just a small amount of the 2013 hay crop, but it has been completed! I was in a panic, just like many farmers in my area, but we are all getting our hay made. Our’s is done. I just need to finish moving some of it home. The lambs in the photo can’t believe that we got it done either 😮

These last two weeks have been the days for projects and hard work. The hay crop took a while, as did getting some purchased straw hauled home and stacked away. We are also getting a machinery shed cleaned out ready for cement. The wash house has been taking some of my time as we continue to work on it.

The lambs have been weaned. The speltz straw has been baled and put away. A large pile of wood and construction debris has been burned. Gas and water lines have ben installed at my son and daughter-in-law’s house. The lawn has been kept mowed and we even built an old fashioned grape arbor.

Pasture and fenceline mowing is the order of the week. We are trying to get things in order after a very wet rainy summer. The sugar house wood is the next project on the horizion… very soon we will be buttoning things up for winter… Brrr I hate to think about that right now, but I feel a whole lot better about it now that the hay is done ….. for this year anyway 😮
