Wrong timing

This is one of several paddocks surrounding the village. In a cruel twist of fate, it was mowed and left for hay just before we had the rain. Now the potential hay crop lies flat and damp. I imagine farmers wish they could see into the future on a regular basis...



It may recover. If it didn't get too wet, and there is enough sun, the hay might yet dry out and get baled. If you bale it damp is not a good thing, the bales can go mouldy and you can get Farmer's Lung....
