The rain has held off since Sunday and by this evening the hay in Minsou's field was just about dry enough to bale. I've promised to take Sarah into the mountains tomorrow so I decided to bale it now rather then wait another 36-48 hours and risk it being rained on. After transporting the baler and tractor to the road below the field, I dumped all the hay over the bank then forked it into the baler. The sun was setting as the last bale was stacked. Twenty bales.
Yesterday upper field 1 was given a short back and sides with the brush cutter and field 2 a gentle topping with the scythe. The sheep are in field 3. Leia has a lump on the back of her mammary so she might need to go to the vet later this week.
Ceps and girolles (chanterelles) on offer at the moment and the wild cherries are just about ripe.
