Our first cut of hay is in the barn (well, it was in the barn as of Thursday night...I'm just very behind with every thing--especially the blog lately!)
It went very smoothly. We still hire someone to mow for us, but then we bale it up ourselves. It's all on land we rent nearby our farm.
Haying always stresses Adam a lot (what will the weather be? can we get it done by ourselves? will our old machinery break down?), so it's nice for all of us when it is done! ;) It was our first time haying with our bigger tractor that we just inherited from my grandpa before he died. We had to share some videos with family--it was pretty special.
We celebrated with this summer's first batch of our homemade, homegrown (raw) icecream...mint chip!
