Farm Scenes Friday 5/20/16

A day late. Oh well, that's how it goes sometimes. 

This week was all about hay. Unfortunately, the weather has not been cooperating the last few weeks. The field was not going to wait though and desperately needed to be hayed. The grass was starting to go to seed. So we went ahead and cut the field Wednesday morning and then baled it Friday evening since Saturday called for rain. Of course things didn't go smoothly but in the end things all worked out. Many of the bales are a little too wet but many bales turned out fine. Hopefully, the weather cooperates better for the second cutting later this season.

Luckily, the garden is cooperating! The garden is finally taking shape and seedlings are starting to pop up. We still need to get more seeds in the ground but at least things are started.

This weekend will be spent trying to get things ready for the cow we will be bringing home next month.

How was your week?
