Haying Time..

We have been full swing into haying season for a couple of weeks now.

Here is a bit of a photo journey:

(if only we could capture the smells of the sweet smelling hay!)

Here is the hay cut and drying so it can be baled up.

It usually take 3-5 good drying days before it is dry enough.

When it is baling day the rake comes out and turns the hay putting two rows into one. This way it is easier to bale and gives it a chance to dry a little more if it needs it.

And then it's time to bale.

It's always nice to have a 'little' company!

When the bale is done the baler spits it out.

Nice round bale

All stacked and ready for the cows to eat in the winter.
A 'just for fun' picture of the boys :)
