Well up here in Minnesota it's been below 20 degrees several times. Not much green left, only the turnips and a few bottom leaves of alfalfa, but we are long past green around here. Tho today was close to record setting, 60-something.
Had a 5 acre patch of swamp grass, didn't get cut the 2nd time. First cutting was delayed, a plugged tile inlet kept a foot of water on it for a long time, late 1st cutting.
Sure looked like nice hay in September, but real short yet, would miss a lot with the rake and baler pickup.
Then combining came early, so no more thinking of hay.
Combined, plowed, chisel plowed. Other stuff.
Went & looked at the grass patch yesterday, and man, those little showers we got in late October really made it grow, very bushy & leafy & full, tender. Of course froze off, bleached tan. But - nice looking grass all the same!
So, I got out the sickle mower yesterday, cut it - it was so bushy couldn't even see where I cut, it just stood there like a deep pile rug. Had to follow the tractor wheel track on the other side, not the mower edge.
Didn't know what I'd get, if it would even bale.
So, got the small square baler out, raked it today, baled it.
