Almost Time for Another Round of Haying
Looks like most of America is suffering from the same massive heat we are right now. Our humidity has dropped a very little bit but it is still like walking around in a constant hot shower whenever you are outside. I am doubly hampered by the heat since I spend the best part of the working day at my part time job and I get off just in time for the real heat to hit.
I got ahead of the Barber Pole worm issue it seems but that and catching up with the bees plus mowing constantly due to the rain and the heat has kept me well away from the fencing project. I have really dropped the ball on that and to top things off it is now time to get the next hay mowing in too.
All the neighbors got their cut today but truthfully I am usually a week or so behind them and I still need to get some work done on the old sickle mower to try it again.
The old boy down the road swears it just needs a little tightening and a few teeth replaced to be in tip top shape.
I guess that will now become my Sunday project.
Seems I never get caught up this time of year. I mostly blame mowing.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
