We came home to hay down in the field. Sunday it was baled and the wagons were bought into the barn.
I was happy to have a good second cut but I never look forward to unloading and stacking hay,
Unloading hay is messy, dirty work and doing it on the hottest, most humid day we have had this summer doesn't make the job any more enjoyable!
My oldest daughter is home on a summer break from college, she volunteered to help. It has been about 5 years since she has participated in putting up hay. It took her back pretty quickly to the days when her and her sisters unloaded wagons of hay every summer. I can't believe all of that work didn't help build the work ethic they have today. They were some tough little girls!
We only managed to get one wagon unloaded, two more to go.
I just keep reminding myself how satisfying it will be to have all of the hay we need for winter stacked up in the barn in July. A much better situation than we were in last year.
