It was too hot to bale or work this afternoon at 90 degrees but I went out about 5:30 and gave it a try. It worked well so I went on over to the hundred acre woods and baled up all the hay swaths I had turned this morning with the rake. Bouncing around the rough old yard of Winstanley Grove. No buildings remain but the collapsed walls of the house can be seen down in what was the cellar of the house. The concrete footing of the barn sticking just high enough out of the grass to give a real jolt to any wheels that pass over it. Grass sure grows thick and tall there even in this dry summer.
Its nice to get dry hay but the wheat and canola is starting to show the stress of this heat and lack of rain. Hilltops are turning light (burning) and probably won't have much grain in them.
It looked promising this evening at sundown as I baled. Clouds in the West. Radar showed some measurable rain to the West and North of me but it eventually split up and went all around us. Its like this area has some kind of rain repellent lately.
