Mowed a bunch of hay this morning with no rain in the forecast until Tuesday evening. 8pm tonight it started raining and hasn't stopped yet, now rain is in the forecast for tomorrow. Just can't win this year.

The old Lewis turkey farm. Sad situation, had to be auctioned off to pay off loans. They've auctioned off several other sections the last few years. This was all that was left. As the crow flies it's probably 10 miles from my house.

Posted pictures of this same field back in April during my first cutting of the season. It was overseeded in ryegrass then. Today I did my 4th cutting of the season on that same field with its Summer grass going strong. It's mostly Quick-N-Big Crabgrass now with a lot of Bahia mixed in. Was disappointed last year with the crabgrass after I planted it in the Spring and then...THE DROUGHT. But we've had rain this Summer (so far with fingers crossed) and, evidently a lot of those seeds remained viable this year plus the few I left on seed heads with the final cutting last year (just like R.L Dalrymple suggests). Feeling better about it now..

Looks good yall.. I have discontinued cutting hay as we are extremely dry now and pastures are not growing and turning brown. If things change may do it again but not likely

Cut 20 acres the other day and got it baled up just before another inch of rain fell. Stayed up til 3am hauling hay in and it was a good thing because now the field is underwater.

Very nice... Do they have a camera to take still pictures or do you just cut a pic out and edit it from a video?
