Yesterday Tom hauled all of our haying equipment off to the auction. It is not working as well as he had hoped, and he is tired of dealing with it. The equipment is too large for our tractor, and he is nervous that it will become damaged if we keep using it. He wants to recoup our looses and get in more appraise equipment.
The problem is that we can’t afford nicer equipment and also keep buying thousands of dollars worth of hay each year. So we shall see. But I am sad. I had enjoyed the haying work and felt briefly like a real farmer. Oh well.
I wanted to post this photo for Jeanne. The duck is holding up way better than Mr. Bills but is getting showing signs of abuse. Two of the squeakers are out, but there still are 4 more.
And finally I wanted to post about our dinner from Monday night. It was from a recipe called How to Roast a Chicken like Jacques Pepin. It it was really, really good.
