Cutting Hay

We started cutting hay just east of the house yesterday. There is going to be a lot of hay.

Last night a thunderstorm came through. We got about an inch of rain in half an hour. There was also a terrible wind and hail, not a good combination. It pretty much wiped out the garden. Fortunately the hail wasn't really big. If it had been we might have lost some windows.

Now for the haying pictures.

A big patch of clover.

Tall grass.

Nice windrows.

The hay here was so tall it was lying over.

We went flying this morning and I took some pictures of the hay. Luckily the windrows stayed put during the storm.

  1. Great pictures as usual. I really appreciate them as I am not able to do that as yet. I like to see cut hay and smell it as it cures. Also, I like knowing that it will keep cattle warm in the winter.
