It's done, thank dawG
Here's Baler Neighbour heading into the small north field, the last one. After another false start, and the comment was made to Larry 'where'd you learn to make hay anyway', and Larry had to re rake all the fields to dry out the moisture in the bottom of the windrows. Larry just let him say whatever he wanted, he just wanted to get the hay baled. I said that I had better stay out of his way then, as I might say something I shouldn't.
And the kicker was that at the end of it all, he wants to charge us 25% more than last year. Baler twine and fuel have gone up in price he says. I'm sure they have, but not 25%, and that is only a small part of the cost of each bale anyway. Yeah, yeah, I should just shut up, but this is my blog, and I'll say what I want to! Hopefully it doesn't come back to bite me in the butt. The thing is, you are kind of in a bind, as the hay has to be baled, and if there is no one else around to do it.....
Anyway, I got Larry considering about getting our own baler, but then how much longer do we want to be doing this anyway?
