July 12


I love haying season! There is nothing like the smell of the freshly cut hay drying in the field and the big round bales are so picturesque.

The drought is so bad in Texas there is very little hay. A neighbor who normally gets 100 round bales off his meadow only got 17 in the first cutting this year and it is now questionable whether there will be another cutting. The norm is three cuttings during the summer! But I agree ~ the smell is so earthy! I just hope there's enough to smell this year!

My first comment didn't post so I am back again! I love the smell of hay too. When I was a child the hay bails were shaped differently. I have never seen them made. I would like to see the machine that makes these.

You all are doing the same thing we are here in VA. The field I just posted had TWO tractors cutting at the same time. I tried my best to get them side by side, but I was not successful...they are a little cat-i-wumpsed but I may post them just the same. This cut will be it till next year. Hope the farmers are happy. The fields look pretty good to me. Love your bales...Genie

I agree--there's something quite satisfying about a bale of freshly cut hale. Great pic!

It's begun here, too. The birds like to sit on the tops of the bales.

Farmers here have finished their first cut and bales are out in the fields too. I agree that it's a wonderful time of year.
