Checking the Hay Field

8 Jul

With all the rain, it’s been difficult for farming.  My corn is not happy.  That yellow means decreasing yields.  It needs time to dry out.

It also means we’ve been waiting to make hay for several weeks now.  I took a couple walks out in pasture to see if it was dry enough to make hay.

Of course, it was also a good excuse to go out and take pictures. Since the goats haven’t been back there, I haven’t been either.

black eyed susan

Eastern kingbird

lamb’s ear (it never gets to bloom when goats are around)

thistle blossom (the goats usually take care of these too)

The good news is that I think we can actually mow now!
