This is one of my favorite times of year - when the fields get mowed. I know it's tough on the farmers 'cuz they're working nearly around the clock. But sheesh, is there anything prettier than mown fields?
My brother owns the parcel kitty-corner across from us. Yesterday the local farmer came and mowed it for us (he'll bale it in a week or two, barring any rain).
Twenty-five acres of grass hay will yield enough tons of feed to keep our animals comfortably through the winter and into late spring.
Ain't it purty?
