Make Hay While The Sun Shines

Many of us use that proverb to actually mean:  Make the most of an opportunity while the chance is there.  Not all of us even get to see hay, what more making it … ah, but at this stage of my life, I see it 1st hand being made regularly in summer.

But summer is over, the weather is cooling down and before the days get shorter, my neighbor makes real hay so that his cows and horses have food for chilly winter.

Tall grass is trimmed and left to dry in the sun.

How he designs his cutting pattern ~ only he knows.

The grassy fragrance … wow!

The grassy fragrance ... wow!

How he designs his cutting pattern ~ only he knows.

It's quite a sight.

It always seems to go smoothly; nothing ever goes haywire 🙂

I can just sit and watch the process and not sneeze because hay does not necessarily cause hay fever.  Hay fever is an allergic reaction to air-borne particles which might be pollen, fungi, dust, etc.

Tomorrow I’m going to buy a bale of hay!

Update (10/16/15):  Oh yes, I am now the happy owner of a bale of hay ~ ready to mulch “everything”. (It will probably last me more than a year!)DSCF4247
