What unusual hay making weather it has been. The wind has blown from all four quadrants and has now settled in the North. We have had at least two June grass frosts this week, including one last night (emergency fleece has been deployed in the garden to protect tender crops!).
Usually when hay making work in the day is hot and rowing up and hauling in the cool of the evening is a relief. This time I have been going out in the evening with long sleeves on, even then slightly cool and hoping the work will warm me up.
Still, time for a break from hay making while Phil goes down to Somerset for the scythe festival. The last batch of hay cut wasn’t quite dry enough to haul so we put it up on a couple of racks, where it will safely sit until there is time to bring it in.
