These are really old photos from earlier this summer that I never had a chance to post. My friend and I have been cleaning out an old (very old) barn, which was full of hay up to the waist. We’ve been baling the hay and selling it cheaply as mulch hay, which has the advantages of 1) getting the hay out of the mow* 2) making the gas money back that it takes to bale it. It’s very dusty business, but as more and more of the floor of the barn is uncovered, it’s very rewarding.
Tractor and baler at the ready, with a giant pile of hay I dumped out of the mow. (That’s Hercules, by the way.)
Putting old hay into the baler.
Poor old barn is getting a little drafty
A little hay dust can make even old tires look magical
This *must* have been a long time ago because the Black Locust is in full bloom.
Maybe my favourite photo of the set.
Black locust blooming
At the golden hour, everything looks beautiful
Even puppies who want to know just WHAT is so exciting up there?
Puppies who later get to go on a truck ride!
*NB: This was a term I’d never heard before, but it basically means the upper part of the barn where the hay is stored.
