Haying Mercy

The cool, wet weather system has mercifully given way to a few days of warmer sunshine, so we hayers have been back in the fields, trying to dry (by raking or inverting the windrows) the hay and get it baled and stacked before the next storm system presents itself. It’s hard to imagine any livelihood more at the mercy of the weather than farming and ranching!

Today I learned how to stack bales on the trailer--fun but tricky.
Air conditioning in our 1981 2940 John Deere: open windows and shorts! 

“…Rejoice in the Lord your God! For the rains he sends are tokens of forgiveness. Once more the autumn rains will come, as well as those of spring. --Joel 2:23 (TLB)
