We finished hauling all the bales earlier this week…..all 2,500 of them are home now.
The bales were scattered through the fields like this one, in ditches and in stacks in the fields.15 bales are loaded on this wagon. This is the same wagon that has been used since I was growing up on the farm. We also have a semi trailer that is used to bring bales in from the ditches and fields farther away. A bale is put on back of the tractor spike for weight and stability.
Now I really wish I had a picture of the hay fences with all the new bales.

I spent the morning cleaning out the chicken coop. Certainly not the best job around but it needed to be done. The chickens had worked their other bedding into fine particles so it was starting to get dusty in there. But it really wasn’t that bad to do. Just put on a face mask and hoody jacket. The girls really did like it all cleaned up!!

We have been looking for berries, plums or apples of any sort. Most of these trees in the area did not produce this year. We have been watching this tree to see how the apples turn out. We checked it yesterday and found it full of these beautiful little crab-apples. We picked one full tub of crab-apples today and there are SO many left on the tree. I see a lot of work ahead of us…..
