This was the view out of my front door today. My brother Nate drove the tractor to the hay lots near my house.
It’s been so rainy this summer that this is the first cutting. My uncle mowed it yesterday, Nate tedded today, and they’ll probably bale it tomorrow.
The tedder spins around and fluffs up the hay, helping it dry out.
I’ve been lucky that I haven’t helped to make hay often. It’s these gosh darn allergies that keep me from helping… How convenient?
I have to give special thanks to my brothers for this post. First, Nate called me to let me know that I should come take pictures, then Jon helped me spell “tedder” correctly and also let me verify that I know what it does! Thanks boys!
