Hay season again and I am glad to be mostly finished. Curtis gets saddled with all the responsibility of maintaining the equipment and getting it done. I just do what he tells me😁most of the time. But inevitably, something breaks while I am using it. This year was stressful because of the forecast. Every day chances of rain. The new (used) baler broke right off the bat. We managed to limp along with the old baler and almost had it done until the tractor tire blew. 70 percent chance of rain the next day, so I went to the house to get my girls and thought they could pull the hay rake the last few rounds. Unfortunately, I got them hitched and Judy had a flat tire too.
It did get rained on, but Curtis was able to finish with one tractor and get most of it up few days later.
