Hay today .... A photo essay
.... but it will be gone tomorrow!
Good morning Norwich and the Upper Valley:
Today’s short story/photo essay is about a bunch of hay that has been growing in the fields and is ready to be cut. These photos and a short video will show the work that is being done to get the job done right. There are several fields in this story that were cut and processed. See if you can figure out where they are. Comments are accepted and appreciated. Send them to aboutnorwich@gmail.
A vintage Farmall 700 is used to get things going and responsible for collecting Hay that has been cut in several fields!
Here is some information from Wikipedia on the very first Farmhall tractor - a model MD
Although IHC's very first diesel-engine tractor was a "Standard" model WD-40 built from 1935 to 1940, the very first "Farmall" diesel tractor was the model MD released in 1941.

And it seems to know just what to do with ease!
Getting the hay ready to dry and then we wait for the pickup crew to arrive!
And getting some backup when it was needed most. ( A different field this time)
I hope they don’t roll down the hill before they are picked up!
A short video is in the link below:
Getting the job done right in no time!
Just a lonely roll of hay and a family of deer nearby is all that is left in this field
And this truck is almost ready to roll with the rolls of hay on board.
They sure do look like giant marshmallows to me!
No ! Just the haybales that were lucky enough to get the full spa treatment.
