I think I can safely say that we are now officially finished baling corn fodder for this year! The good weather stuck around and cooperated quite nicely. The rain and snow that we were supposed to get last week never materialized...yay...and Jim baled all the fodder that he wanted.
I didn't keep track of how many wagon loads he baled, but it's somewhere right around a dozen. The last four, he didn't unload, but just backed them into the barn at the other farm, full. Since we don't need those wagons empty until next spring, why not? It takes some maneuvering to get those wagons into place...it's a tight fit, and I sure couldn't do it, but he makes it looks pretty easy.
After school today, I drove the truck while Jim and Eric picked up the last few bales that didn't fit on the last wagon...
...and we got to see this as we were finishing up...
All around us today, neighbors were baling fodder, baling and wrapping hay and rye, trying to finish up all that they could before they ran out of daylight and nice weather.
As I write, the wind has picked up and the temps have begun to drop. It's to begin raining over night tonight, and I think our mild weather will be history. I'm bummed about that...I'm a fair weather fan, and there are still flower beds to clean up, and lots and lots of leaves to rake.
I guess I'll have to pull out the coveralls and get to work!
