Last Sunday afternoon, I went to visit Ms. Charlsie. We’ve been having SUCH beautiful weather here, so we decided to sit out on her front porch for a while and watch the neighbors working in the hay field just across the dirt road.
I grew up in the city, but this city girl loves hay season!! Of course, I don’t have to actually work the hay, but there’s just something about the sight of newly baled hay sitting in a field and oh.my.gosh the SMELL of fresh cut hay that I just love. It’s one of the things I love about living in the country.
While I’ve seen hay being baled and hauled before, I was so intrigued and impressed with how efficient they were at it. I took a few pictures…
You can’t tell very well, but they spiked those huge square bales two at a time and stacked them on the truck til it was loaded front to back in two layers. He was SO good at it. I could’ve watched all day long.
Soon, we’ll be enjoying the town streets decorated with hay, and pumpkins, and all things fall. I can’t wait.
What do you love about where you live?
