Foggy morning

October 27th, 2017

It’s a sure sign fall is in the air when we begin to have morning river fog.  When the air temperature is cooler than the river temperature fog rolls in over the fields.  This photo was taken this morning.  It’s our first fog of the fall.  There’s a hay field and row of trees in this photo – they’re just covered in fog!

Early winter?

October 18th, 2017

Every year a local family of geese comes into one of our fields.  It’s been going on for years.  When the weather is bad we feed them whole corn and they eat grass shoots in the fields.  Normally they show up in December.  This afternoon they flew in and landed in the field!  Never have they shown up this early.  Do you suppose they know something we don’t know about the weather?

4th and last cutting of 2017

September 27th, 2017

We’ll finish cutting our hay fields for the last time today.  It’s a bittersweet moment each year.  We love what we do but by the end of hay season we are glad to have a little down time before preparing the fields and equipment for winter.    By next spring we’ll be chomping at the bit to begin 1st cutting!
