At last a warm(ish) fine day with a light breeze and a reasonable amount of sunshine. Yesterday started off wet, so that any grass which had been cut the previous day lay wet and soggy.
But today the grass has really dried and silaging has taken off in earnest - both forage silaging and round bale silaging are in full swing.
My hens will be delighted tomorrow when they can once more venture into the fields to scratch around for grubs. The grass has been far too long for them and they have been confined to the yard and even going round next door to scratch around on the hard surface (our neighbours are Haulage Contractors with a fleet of lorries). Their delight has been when a lorry returns from collecting grain at A and taking it to B - then when the driver washes out the lorry before going home for the night there is grain to pick up. The fact that their hut has grain scattered among the straw every morning is immaterial. Stolen fruit is always the sweetest.
