Making Hay

I really love this time of year. It is time to bring in the first cutting of hay. There is nothing like seeing the rows of hay bales lined up ready to go in the barn. Makes me feel secure in knowing if nothing else we will have hay to feed the animals through the winter.
We are a little late getting started cutting this year but hay is a crop thats harvest is dependent on the weather. With all of the storms we have had it was a wait for a stretch of dry weather.
Now that we have dry weather it has turned so hot I am afraid all of the grass is going to burn up and there will not be a second cutting. We should have enough with this first cutting though to feed all the animals and sell a bit. I love the smell of fresh cut hay still warm from the sun. Its the little things in life.
