Of course we have been haying our fields and any other fields we can. We even got a chance to hay the fields next to our town hall. Not the greatest of hay because it had so many weeds but still sellable. We sold a few bales straight from the field and then we took the remaining bales back home and sold it from there.
We had Jasmine, our granddaughter, for the summer. She loved helping out from a shady spot under the hay wagon. She had plenty of company from Emma and Lucy.
This is the hay wagon we have been using. It belongs to our neighbor and holds about 100 bales. Not bad but not ours.
We were able pick up this chassis via barter. It looks like it is a John Deere. Old and rusty now. All we needed was some lumber and time. Ted was positive he could turn it into a masterpiece.
We have been keeping the Rustoleum Company in business lately. If we can slow down the aging and stop it from rusting we should be set for a while.
I love to barter. It makes both parties happy and feeling like they got a good deal. How can I get so excited about a hay wagon? I just am. Rough cut wood from a local saw mill: $160.00,
bolts: $16.00. Ted's labor priceless.
More on our summer soon.
Much Love and Prayers from MainelyEwes Farm
