Back in the Swing

After spending Sunday resting, I cut some more of the pasture tonight. This time my muscles didn't complain at all, and I got a lot done. It's so satisfying to watch the stalks fall with every swing of the blade. I could have kept going, but the sun had gone down and I needed to rake the cut grass out to dry before leaving. Orchard grass is quite lovely in twilight, with luminescent blue-green leaves. I love mowing season.

How are you storing the cut hay, Mel? In order to keep it in good condition for winter? We didn't have much luck with the small bit we put up last year.

I shall blog about that. Maybe tomorow, though, because it's getting late now.
