Unsettled weather continues to hamper any chances of making hay this year. To wrap or not to wrap has been the question, with only one answer. Days are getting shorter and the two fields we’ve cut were shut up after ewes and lambs had grazed it, so the grass is soft and lush.

We did main crop silage earlier on and it happened to be on the day of a family wedding. It was the only sunny Saturday in July. It was the quickest tidy up and we just made it to the church before the bride.
