I don’t even know how many bales yet but definitely over two hundred. There is a counter on the baler but I forgot to look. John’s friends helped and lucky too because only a hour or so after the bales were in and the men were fed the skies opened up and it poured and then poured again. And that storm came in fast. I did not even know it was on its way.
So, so glad that John was able to call in reinforcements.
Has to be noted though that this hay was way way past its due date, so there is very little nutrition in these bales. But I will make it work!
Poppy’s babies continue to thrive.
I will baby-proof their back yard today and let Poppy back out. In the afternoon it is cooler around the back of the barn.
This is the state my outside table was in before I cleared it off to feed the men. That Cat!
I made sliders for their lunch and want to share the roll recipe. I have made these a few times and they are so good. I am going to make piles of them for our gathering next week.
I hope this link goes to the recipe because it has never failed me, I used 1/3 Turkey Red – Mackinaw and 2/3 Glenn – Chicago. Both available at The Mill at Janie’s Farm. I wish I had taken photos for you but they were gobbled up with my grass fed beef burgers so fast.
I also have the book written by the head baker at HEWN. She has a bakery in Chicago. She bakes with our flours and also stocks my small retail bags for sale.
Unlike most of her recipes the rolls are made with store bought yeast so everyone can make them. Sourdough feels a little exclusive sometimes. These take two and a half hours from wo to go. ( is it “wo” – I have never written that before – maybe it is woe as in woe is me, I had better go – woe to go).
Del is mooing. (Woe-ing )
I had better go.
the weather is in the 90’s again. Hot hot hot
