Hay at the end

Emma Heseltine: This week has been a whirlwind. I’ve spent most of everyday sat on a tractor making hay. After its been cut the grass needs turning several times and this week we have perfect hay weather to help us along, boiling sun and a drying breeze. Still the hay needs turning to get all the green bits cooked. By the middle of the week we are on to baling and I get to have a go with the brand new rake. I haven’t really done rowing up before but I like the symmetry of the rows. The rake spins round lots of tines to scrape all the hay, which is spread higgledy-piggledy all over the field, into neat rows so the baler can come along and gobble it all up and turn it into bales
