Harvesting field 2

Tonight we cut our Field #2, and it was possibly the heaviest, tallest hay we’ve ever cut. Field 2 lies along Sanes Creek and is incredibly fertile. It was planted during the 2012 drought and has simply thrived.

This cutting may be up to 50% alfalfa with very strong orchard grass content, and some Timothy. The orchard grass was pushing 4′ tall! Orchard heads have just emerged, and the alfalfa is 0% in flower. This will be very nice hay if we get it dried down before any rain.
