Hay and Wood

I don't believe I shared the pictures of our haying and our winters wood. (I thought I had, but can't find them on the blog,)
Hubby was waiting for dry weather after we got our new culvert so he could get in and out of the driveway better with the haybine. The week before the Fourth of July we managed to get all the hay baled. The first two fields were rained on, but just after cut, so they were still okay.
Then from Monday on it was nice and dry so by Wednesday, our neighbor came by and whipped his big baler around the hay fields. You can see the bale in the background from the first field.
Here Randy is just getting started with the rolled hay in the foreground. We had 108 bales this year, over twenty more than last year.

After the hay was off the field, (and Hubby had a high old time spearing and moving all the bales, carefully placing each on a pallet behind the barn) it was time to call "The Wood Guy." By the weekend he was here with his big truck.
Once the metal posts and chains are removed, the wood is pushed to the ground. Ready for Hubby to start cutting it up.
I think Hubby has his work cut out for him.
