From the garden to the plate

and ate carrots from our own garden

Small Bales



We cleaned up the pasture


Rien was on the wagon


first 1/2 load hay with little manure
second 1/2 load had much more manure in it


I dislike driving on an angle
so I was on the wagon for the first 15 bales on the hill

It's warm



A good place to hang out


The windmill is often standing still for a while


no wind and warm

Army Worms in the Wheat



The crop-scout from the Coop is looking


these are the most damaging, they are young 


turts from the worms


an adult who's almost done living
they won't do much damage anymore

Second Cut Haylage



Plastic on the walls


dumping

making a good looking pile




off and on the trucks roll in


Marc backs up to give room


William driving truck


done here, off to the next farm

the hottest job, putting on tires


between the walls on one side
no wind, that wasn't easy


Second cut Hay



The baler came so late, on Thursday evening
 the hay was getting damp so we didn't get very far


Friday the baler was down, so we called another
custom worker, glad he could come


and then his tractor broke down,
but only for 1/2 hour


going again


decent amount of bales


dry in the bale, thankful!
