Raked a loads worth of hay, bales it at 5:00, stacked it in the barn at 7:00. Small squares. Had cut it Wednesday.

It’s some swamp ground, too wet to crop but as the grass grows it can make nice hay if it’s a drier year.

First time in 4 years I cut it in June, and got it put in the barn without a rain!

No pics of the hay itself, I was too tuckered out and the iPad was in the house....

I cut through standing water Thursday and yesterday. It's only supposed to be in the mid 60s today. I don't know if I'll be able to bale today or not. It's slow going.

It’s right around 60hp, which is just about right for that mower. In really tough swamp grass it makes the tractor work, but most of the time it’s just driving along in 6th and hang on. Can handle the weight of the mower too, I think I’m glad to have the 3 weights up front....
