The 'twine lottery' that is.

I was out baling square bales today (which is a totally weird thing to be doing in Western PA in the 2nd week of October). Made some of the nicest, if not nicest, 2nd cutting OG/T hay of the year.

When I got to the end of the day and was cleaning off the baler, I peeked in the twine box to see how much twine was left. This is what I found.

I was about three good plunger strokes from unthreading on that side.

Clearly I should have parked the tractor and ran down to the C-store and bought a PowerBall ticket....

Lol! When that happens DON’T go run and buy a lotto ticket. You’ve used up all your luck already.

It was a great day for baling. We made some of the driest 3rd cutting this year. We also were playing with twine. I had one the I opened stupid and sliced a few outside strands 2 years ago and felt yesterday was a good day to work it down. Had my son on dirt bike riding behind baler with twine lid open so if ran out could stop my uncle before it went through.
