It’s hay baling season….
Here at the farm most of the alfalfa hay is chopped and blown into the silo. Occasionally they bale some into big bales but those are the large over-sized bales that are only moved with the skid loader. They do make the “waterway/ditch” hay into small bales though.
Thankfully these bales aren’t very heavy and the kids actually like to help with these. For awhile today I thought I might have to go out and help but then our daughter Kalissa got home from her summer college class just in time to help out.
Of course, today does have to be the hottest day of the summer with heat indexes over 100 degrees. At least there is a little breeze and the hay crop isn’t so big that the kids aren’t having to stack it in the haymow. She may look tough now, but trust me, she’ll be ready to sleep tonight!!
