September Hay

Baling grass hay in September is always chancy.  The month is full of wet mornings and the shortening days are not the best for drying.  But the second cutting of grass hay is a finer grass and better feed than the coarse stems harvested in June and July.  That alone makes it worth the chance.  This year with the rain I thought that our September hay had been washed away.  Today we baled some good September hay.

The plan had been to start soybean harvest today, but the beans in the field we wanted to start in were too wet.  We’ll clean out the combine and start on a seed bean field tomorrow.  That field has no trace of the immature beans we saw in the field we tried today.
