THE PLAIN SIDE: Baling hay keeps the boredom away

(Continued)

At one point, the raked row is actually so wide the baler can’t reach all the hay. I jump down and quickly help Emily fix the problem. I do mention to my sister how unfortunate it is that she can’t blame someone else for the raking job. Promptly, I get back on the wagon. No point in giving Emily time to think of a retort.

We do get finished though and when darkness has fallen, the hay is all baled.

Truly, it was hard work. Strange how good if feels.
