BALING HAY



Todd had to work late Monday night, so we had a friend of ours come and bale the hay up in great big round bales.

There is nothing better than a field of bales waiting to be moved to the barn.


I learned how to drive the skidloader on Sunday when I was mulching flowerbeds but…..I did not volunteer myself to move bales for him.


Right now, I like seeing them sit in the field. Maybe if he is working late still by Friday, I’ll move them for him. Maybe.

Then again, if I move them, will that give me one more job to do?

I’ll have to think on that one…..
Also, Thank you ladies for joining my PIF. I'll be in touch....

We're waiting for enough rain free days to cut. So far, no luck...

I agree, a field of hay bales is a pretty site!

That's so much fun! I love your life!

We're waiting for enough heat before we will see hay being cut. The farmers here are very concerned they won't get a second cut. I too love seeing these large bales in their fields.

I like to see the bales, too! I don't think you need any more jobs to do.:)

You'd better leave the moving of those bales to Todd, otherwise you'll be stuck with it;-)
So you're doing this to dry hay? We make the dry hay into small bales, aout 15 kg's(30 lbs), and the wet grass(or hay that rains out...) into big bales that are wrapped in plastic.

On our way out to the new house we saw someone baling. The boys were fascinated. Of course, I remember when baling meant throwing square bales onto the back of the wagon. Oh, I hated that...

I always loved my drives to work in rural SC for the farms I passed along my way and yes, those lovely big round bales of hay that dotted across the fields. I can imagine the fresh smell. Delicious!

Happy days and sunshine, Kris!

i love the look of baled hay! Well done on a great harvest.

You could do it once and somehow end up getting a bale up in a tree or something...that's similar to how I got out of doing laundry!

When I was a kid and visited family on the farm, I loved the smell of hay. And the round bales make me smile, too.
