It’s hard to think about winter during this hot weather and summer celebrations! But this time of year, hay is certainly a priority. This year the weather cooperated and we got most of our first cutting of hay up well before Memorial Day. However, like any other year there were challenges. We bought a new mower last year, so no mower trouble this year right? Wrong. Then the tractor’s turbo went out and we were thankful for that news because the turbo is a much cheaper fix than a new motor! But that’s just the way things work, yet it does make you think about purchasing your hay supply instead of putting it up yourself! In spite of all that, we are really happy that most of the hay is nicely in rolls and waiting to be put in the barn until we need them this winter.
