Although Terry only cut the alfalfa just a few days ago, the hot sun and the drying winds had the alfalfa turned to hay by yesterday afternoon.
Then at the crack of dawn
In the tranquil brightening of the sunlit sky…
With the dew laying perfectly on the rows of soon-to-be-baled hay….Terry started up the tractor and baler. Each little leaf still adhering to the stem, folded and compacted, all tied up with twine.
Making perfect bales of hay.
Dew…just the right amount of dew, is the secret to rich, green, protein filled bales of food.
