We have had a hot dry July here in most of Canada.
We still haven't had rain here and it is very dry.
The farmer told me the hay is very brittle.
It's a dusty, dirty and hot job on this almost 30° C day.
The baler shoots the bales onto the wagon.
The winrows of hay waiting to be baled.
One farmer takes the wagon load to the barn.
The farmer's brother heads back to the tractor to finish haying.
Thankfully for them, the tractors are enclosed and air conditioned.
Not like the old days!
Behind this hay field is the crop of soybeans. They aren't
growing well in the dry conditions of this summer.
Hopefully we'll soon get some rain for this and other crops.
Our neighbour's vegetable garden. It is usually a lot fuller than this.
Such a beautiful summer day.
A good day to harvest hay...
while the sun shines.
I hope you have a wonderful week!
I have had some difficulty posting comments on a few
blogs. They were returned in my inbox for some reason.
So, I have visited and have tried to comment.
I'm not ignoring you. :)
