Well I got my grass cut today and got the driveway blown off of all the pine needles.
The wife also was able to get some weeds pulled before it just got to hot to be out there any longer.

Did a bit of mowing this evening to work off all that pizza I ate!  :th_thicon_lol:

Will be sort of mowing tomorrow. We are going to start baling more hay off two of the pastures in the morning. Dad and I are going to swap out running the rake while my brother runs the baler.

My brother cut two pastures last week. He, Dad and I baled hay Saturday and Sunday. We got almost 27 bales off those two pastures.

A round bale was going for $65 to $70 a bale last year. My brother used about 28 bales last winter to feed his cows, and estimates he will probably need about 40 this winter. We should get one more good cutting and baling off those pastures this year. So he shouldn't have to buy any hay this year.

That's what I'm doing today. Right now, the vast majority is done that I can get to. Might fire up the weedeater this evening and do some trimming.

If it don't rain anymore! It has been thundering and dark clouds, so we might get some more rain later.

Havent mowed the grass at the house since about April or May. I dont waste water on the grass if it dont rain I dont  mow. It is my 2 fold way of helping the environment. Conserve water and reduce carbon emissions all in one easy step.

However here is the after pic of the weekend project behind the work place. I dont own it so there is that.

Took us from 8-2 on sat

In central Pa we have had one 15 minute light sprinkle In a month. My grass was fairly high with stringy crap, but green.
So I mowed right around the immediate house Sunday. We were supposed to get a heck of a rain storm Sunday night.
Well, it missed us by 10 miles. Now my lawn is brown. It had the dust flying when I mowed.

I should have left it alone.  :bangheadonwall:

Had a bit of a busy week last week. Wednesday, I moved a lot of dead brush piles and got them consolidated into one large one to burn this fall when it cools down some.

Thursday, I spent mowing and weedeating where some of the brush piles were and cutting down some more smaller trees I wanted gone.

Friday, I rested! I was slap wore out!

Saturday, my brother and I used his large dump trailer and hauled seven loads of dirt onto to the driveway, and spread it out to build it up a few inches and fill in some of the low spots. We then helped Dad cut up and haul off a tree that fell in his yard. Tractors make short work of that tree!

Sunday, I installed a replacement door window and gasket in my brother's Kubota RTV. That was loads of fun!
