Porch sitting is a hobby for me.
When we lived on our farm, I did exactly what you did....watched!
Your's is the 2nd post I've read today about bailing hay. And here in Ohio it's been going on too. Those farmers do not lead an easy life for sure. We are blessed to have them.
Yeah, but the big round bales are now all handled by the equipment. STILL A lot of HARD dirty WORK, that is for sure, but smells good when youare in the middle of it. :-)
Looks like hard work! I'd rather be on the porch, too.:-)
