Beating the Rain

Last week, The Farmer mowed 25 (yes, twenty-five!) acres of hay. Despite the great weather predictions, it rained on the cut hay. Yesterday and today it was finally dry enough to bring in. 700 bales were stacked in the sheep barn yesterday, and 800 more came in tonight. But the wind was blowing from the east ("Wind from the east is not good for man or beast.") and the sky was clouding up.


Hurry...



Hurry...
Bring me a 3/8" x 1-1/2" bolt for the baler chute chain!


Hurry...
We've run out of twine, can you run some out here?


Hurry!


Whew. We made it in and beat the rain. The life of a farmer is carefree and stressless. Not!
