Yes, I know it’s been done and I know that images such as this appear on the web regularly but, I couldn’t resist. The hay is down and raked and the weather looks good for making bales today. Our yield for this second-cut harvest isn’t good but it’s our own fault for not investing in fertilizer for this field after we took off the first crop in June. The news this morning wasn’t good for crops across drought-stricken parts of the country, nearly a third of corn and soybean yields have been classified as poor to very poor. Because our first harvest was good, and because the number of mouths we have to feed is down, we are grateful.
