Crop Check

11 Jun

While I was out in pasture to make sure Caroline was staying with the herd (and play with her),

Sweet Caroline

I got distracted by a bird on the fence.

That made me notice how tall the grass was.  I decided to go over the fence and see how the soybeans were doing.  They are up and growing well.

I also noticed that the alfalfa was blooming and really past the peak for making into hay.  The nephew has been very busy with planting and making hay.

Today, when I went out to check my pregnant girls (yes, that’s all I do), I saw a different sight.

They mowed!  I followed the waterway, and I caught up to them just as they were finishing mowing up north.

There’s nothing as pretty as hay fields.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have next week’s list at the top of my side bar.

    Awww! Sweet Caroline is so cute! All of your pictures are very nice. Having lived on a farm, I can appreciate the beauty of alfalfa and newly mown hay.
