Boy, that really brings back some memories of when I used to bush hog our little orchard, and many of the areas around the house.  Thanks for sharing, and glad you didn't disturb some stinging insects!

Southern Ohio was rolling hills and flat, the camera does no justice to the view, takes my breath away every time.

I did not bring the camera the next day.

 

In the last photo, i stopped to look at all the hay fields below, the next day we baled it all, the new hire could not rake so i took his place. Thing about raking is anyone can run a baler but raking,...you got to know how, were and why.

 

No, not the romantic side delivery type, that's for kids, horse farmers and in pre-queens, Kuhn rotary rake, as fast as it will go without missing and that means in 4 th gear B range, turn on the lights when it get's dark-30 and keep right on going.

 

Stupid thing threw two of the rake heads late in the morning which slowed me down quite a bit and our baler quickly caught up, no stopping for lunch, eat on the go and run to the next groupings of fields.

Theme song of the "Green Acres" TV show from many years ago. Fred Ziffle was the neighboring pig farmer.

Your welcome, sorry about the long pause.

 

I had to google the name to be sure how it was spelled, built by Kuhn, rotary rake,  my grandfather had the same one, this one is missing the side skirt so I can pile it high.
