Well, I tied strings around the grasses yesterday afternoon! :huh:

Wasn't quite as dry as I would have liked, got my fingers crossed! :rolleyes:

165 idiot cubes on wagons and under cover! :cool:

Mowed Monday, tedded Tuesday & again Wednesday, raked Thursday afternoon, rolled windrows Friday AM and baled Friday afternoon!

There's a reason that not much dry hay is made around here in May! :rolleyes: :(

My daughter and I took the FAA part 107 drone test yesterday and managed to pass. There was a lot on it and a lot of it IMHO had nothing to do with drones, but we passed. It has been a lot of water pass under the bridge since I studied like I was taking a final exam - LOL! Being in old dog/new tricks territory didn't help...

But it's done and hope to start flying and posting a few drone videos from the farm soon.

I mowed a 8 acre rectangle yesterday at 5:30 and today at 5:30 it could have been baled....without tedding. It has gotten very hot and very dry here. I am not going to complain one bit....at least not until sometime next week. I spent last week making a pretty good dent in the square and round baling. I could use one more week like last and I would be starting to grin. This has been the best haymaking weather here in years.

Regards, Mike

The drought that weather guessers previously forecast for Texas this Spring/Summer has been postponed due the 20+ inches of rain recieved since the middle of April. When it rains it pours!!! I'm ready for a few weeks of sunshine!! :rolleyes:

Tx Jim I was thinking the same thing yesterday after watching it rain.....again. You know what they say about being a weather man, you can get it wrong most of the time and still keep your job! Must be nice. ;)
