We are going to do what??

A few months ago I overheard Bill and a neighbor talking about baling the neighbors field for hay. I didn't think a thing about it as this conversation has happened many times over the last 5 years.

Well, the next thing I know, equipment starts showing up finding happy places to park in our barnyard and the neighbors too. Could this really be happening? Could my hubby REALLY be doing this? The hubby who prefers his clothes to be starched and pressed with the best of military creasing? The man who said to me before we ever were married that he couldn't see himself living more than 5 minutes from a grocery store (he has since decided he will NEVER live in town again)..... YEP! After many hours of all the typical "never done this before" OTJ training........ we have fresh, square bales of hay in the field!

Will wonders never cease?

(I hope not!)

Can you say rain? I mean.... RAIN!

2009 will definitely be the year of many weather discussions! First, it was the long, drawn out, colder than (bleep) winter.... now it is rain! I know, I know..... Our farm is supplied only by a spring for water - so we are very thankful for the rain. But, it has been raining or has looked like rain for the last 10 days! Since April 26, PPH has had 9.07 inches of rain!

All the hay fields (including ours... which is REALLY our front yard!) are waiting rather impatiently to be mowed. The first cutting is going to be pretty stalky, as the rain has shot the seed stalks up to over 5 feet! Crazy isn't it?

We have a reprieve today from any rain. But tonight and for the next 5 days, we have at least a 40% chance of rain. Anybody want to go mud-bogging? :-)
