This is the time we used to start cutting hay in Tn. We sold our cows and quit doing hay about 3 years ago. I usually get an itch about this time of the year to get on the tractor and in the fields. My neighbor who has horses now cut the hay and takes care of the fields. On an average we would do about 3000 square bales a year. It pretty well took up most of our summer. It was hard work but kind of enjoyable to a certain degree. I have a photograph
of the last bale I picked up knowing this was coming to an end....I think I might convert it into a painting some day....maybe call it "The Last Bale". Maybe paint it outside when it's about 98 degrees to get the feel again!
