The next four or five days will be very busy. We'll be cutting and tedding and then baling hay in the window we've got. Forecast shows temperatures in the 80s for the next few days, which around here is HOT.
From what I've read, cutting the hay in the morning results in the best-quality feed (nutrients go from the roots to the leaves and then return at night, so you're catching the plants at the best time). My cutter is pretty fast, but my rake is pretty small -- 10' haybob -- so I'll probably get a better rake this winter.
