Haycocks at Sunset

Not sure if they are right or not but they do look good and the hay is getting there now, should be done tomorrow but we are having a rest day! All cut by hand, supposed to be able to do an acre a day :( We are up to 27 haycocks, they are combined every day to protect from rain and dew and then tedded (redistributed over the field) in the morning. It is going to be a big haystack. Work rate is improving ........ slowly, cutting first thing in the morning also seems to be the thing to do, much quicker and you can cut more before blade needs sharpening. Forecast is very good. So we shall make hay whilst the sun shines.
