Last of the Hay making

What a beautiful week of summer we have just had. Autumn activities were put on hold and we grabbed the opportunity to make hay while the sun shone. The shorter Autumn days meant we were often working out in the fields at sunset, sometimes finishing rowing up in the dark.

Highlights have been early starts on cool, dewy mornings, beautiful red sunsets, children chasing frogs in the windrows, interesting conversation whilst working together and a deep feeling of satisfaction when surveying the full barns.
