Wordless Wednesday – Making Hay

Native grasses ready to cut for hay.

Windrows ready to be raked. We rake 2 windrows together to make one big windrow, then bale it up.

Birds are on the lookout for mice and moles uncovered while we rake and bale hay.

    Looks like here. We are being challenged to get up perfect hay this year due to the rain, which we love to get. Not complaining one bit. It is just more of a juggling and hustling activity this year.

    Love the green prairie and the birds are still happily singing their spring songs, which isn’t the norm.

      It’s hard to complain when the pastures are a sea of green grass and the crops look good. Haying with rainy conditions is challenging, but more favorable than dealing with heat, drought, and wild fires.

      I love seeing all the wild prairie flowers.

    These hay fields look awful familiar. Great to see the sea of green and piles of hay. I’m glad it’s just rain that’s creating problems. So out of character for NW South Dakota in July.

      Don’t jinx us Wynn! We had a close call this evening. West of us got some hail and strong rain. J said he saw 2 funnel clouds, but they did not leave the sky.

      We keep our fingers crossed that the crop damaging weather stays away.
