Tedder Time

The hay is going along nicely.  Brent tedders the hay.  I call it “fluffing,”  but the people, they mock me.  This was not my word for those teddering out there.

That is alfalfa hanging off that fork ( and I’m not excited to see you ).

Thanks to wikipedia, “fluffing” is an okay word to describe this part of hay making.

 It is used after cutting and before windrowing, and uses moving forks to aerate or “fluff up” the hay and thus speed-up the process of hay-making.

We don’t use much hay.  We try to get good quality hay during Spring to use for a  dry summer or a cold winter.  Grazing gets better each year.  The “okay” pastures are coming back to life.  “Great” pastures are thriving.

 

Right now, Tedder Time is over.  We wait while the hay dries and he rows and it is baled.  In the meantime, let’s remember some awesome pants wiggling to hoppin’ beats.

 

 

Thank you for blessing me with a mind to blog and two hype feet.  Stop
