Trail to The Dry Lake

This is the big tree down by the dry lake. We have been trimming out the dead limbs and will hand a porch swing down there when it is ready. It used to be a special hide-out for the Edmiston kids years ago. Sweet place~

This is the big oak tree down the trail to the dry lake. I have been  clearing out dead limbs and branches that hang down low enough to bump your head or poke out your eye. The electric cord to the saw got cut in half that day so the work got cut short too.  I was looking forward to cleaning out a place under the tree to sit and look at that beautiful green field. When I went back a little later, I found that all hay had been cut and was lying on the ground in a mess. So things were not working out as planned. I thought I heard a tractor yesterday and later walked down there and what a surprise.

There is a view from the tree where I can see the field and all that fine crop. They will let it dry and then it will be good for a long time. We had a neighbor who bailed his hay while it was too wet and later it caught on fire. All those bails were smoking from the inside.

There were big round bails of hay that had been combined. They will stay there a while and dry out. Later when I was at the post office, I saw Farmer Shay and he was happy. He had just the right amount of rain and not too much that it drowned the plants, and was a bumper crop.He said he would leave it and not plow it and have a chance to make a second crop. All of this hay on eight acres.

  1. Farmer Shay came yesterday and brought me a watermelon, he told me they had bailed 47 of those big round bails from that 8 acres. They are fertilizing it and could make another crop this season. I need to get that swing hung in the big tree now.
