Make hay while the sun shines

I remember the haying season – The harvester working its way around the field churning out bale after bale and then stacking them into a giant haystack to dry and then storing them in the barn. It was probably very labour intensive compared with today’s method of round bales, but the old baling technique now seem filled with nostalgia and romance of a day long gone.

I remember as do many people my age, climbing the haystacks and making them into Camps and Dens, well those days might be lost, but not forgotten
