Make Hay While The Sun Shines...

.... never a truer word!

For the last few months we've had a lot of rain.... not always every day, but on enough days to not be suitable for Haymaking. This involves, cutting it, drying it - turning it and drying again... then baling and bringing inb. Wet or damp  hay goes musty and ndusty - and can cause fires as it combusts.

Last weekend we had a "window of opportunity" from Thursday to Sunday when the forecast gave dry weather for four days.... so we went for it!

One empty field...
