Because we had lots of rain and hail before we could get the hay up; Terry had to ‘turn’ the hay. Sunday Morning he raked the hay turning it over so the top will be the bottom, and the bottom will be the top and the top will dry.
And Boomer and went out to roll bales and pick up broken bales (there were only two) and pick up all the loose hay on the corners
Then we started hauling in the bales.
(See the twisted bales?)
I did have a sort of a fright…not bad, but I was very much startled. A huge bull snake was resting under one of the bales, when I moved the bale he jumped up and slithered off and I jumped up and out of his path! 🙂 🙂
We got half the field up and then finished on Monday; after we finished we worked some more on the firewood.
We are still irrigating, the alfalfa field will be the last field we set water on then we will be done for the year. BUT FIRST…the field has to be marked out so the water can get down the rows. Seems like there is always something.
It’s cold enough we must wear jackets in the early morning and late evening when we set water. Sure seems early for jackets, but it is what it is.
Next will be pinto bean harvest—soon…very soon.
(Terry and I are getting a tad tired right now.)
