Hay, Hay, HAY!!!!

Well June is upon us.  And around here, June means hay time.

Due to the soaking wet weather we've had, we are actually about 2 or 3 weeks BEHIND on hay time.

We have had the coldest, wettest spring I can remember in a long time. 

Our garden is behind.  I haven't even planted any flowers in my flower pots yet. 

But the hot weather has arrived.  It was in the 90s Tuesday and Wednesday.  Nicer today, with highs only in the low 80s, and finally the humidity has subsided.

So here's what my handsome husband has been up to!

This is our baler.  It makes big, tight bales.

This is one of our hay fields.  Isn't it pretty?

Seriously.  I love to look at a field of freshly baled hay.  It just screams summertime to me.

And the smell.  Wow!!  If you've never smelled fresh cut hay you're really missing something.

Unless you have allergies.  Then, I'm GLAD this isn't smell-a-blog!!

These bales of hay, and the MANY MANY more we will bale before wintertime, will feed our cattle.


After last year's horrible drought we are reminded just how important it is to have lots of bales of hay ready for whatever mother nature throws our way.

So God made a farmer . . . . . .


  1. I love looking at those hay fields, near and far. But I'm just glad on days like yesterday I didn't ahe to work in those fields.
    Cooler today is appreciated I'm sure.

  2. I am envious of your baler; wish I had one...I'm only cutting once this year but hope to get a few dozen.
