5 tons

5 more tons and hay barn

I lifted most (but not all) of 14 tons of hay.  Tom did too.  Thankfully we had outstanding help from Tom’s kid Thomas and Sharon’s kid Josh.  But I am tired!

Every year I still hear in my brain “14 tons, what do you get?, another day older and deeper in debt”.

But it is a huge relief to know that we have hay for our critter for the winter.  It is a great feeling and will be greater after I recover.  Plus there were no trips to the ER this year.  The weather was reasonably cooperative as well.  And it was all done by noon.  So great success.

  4. Hello. I won’t ever forget the growing up on farms and doing hay, something I sometimes miss and sometimes I don’t miss. I hope you had a chance to recover.
