They are mowing our hay field today. Exciting, right? Well as sad as it may sound to some, I am very excited! Does that make me a farm geek?
If any of you read our blog last summer you know our hay making experience was a bust. With the drought and unreliable help we thought our first attempts at a hay field were a complete failure.
We were surprised this Spring when we noticed Alfalfa coming up in the field.
We still were not sure if it was going to be a good enough stand, but with the help of a local Hay guy, who has experience, we are optimistic that we may end up with a nice hay field yet.
If all goes well we should have our first bales of hay in our barn by the end of the week! Yay!
Finding good quality hay, from a reliable source, at a fair price is not always easy. This has been a goal of ours for a very long time.
Now, let's hope they predicted the weather right and we see clear skies for the next few days!
