This year has been so hot and dry that there is a huge hay shortage, not only in southern Ontario, but through the US also. Our second cut was so sparse that DH found a way to get it into a windrow so that he could bale it. If he had used the hay rake, the alfalfa would just have fallen off of the stems into the ground. He creatively used the sweeper from the lawnmower hooked to the ATV to gather it up, and bale it. We only got 12 bales, but it was better than what we would have it he had not used this method, and that would have been 0. He is a picture.
