Plenty to do ,living on a Farm

By netta1234
Well I told you I had some Hay bales to carry yesterday in the hot weather,so here I am loading the trailer and yes it was hot.But we left it untill the evening and it was much cooler ,was out untill about 10,had the sun on one side and the moon on the other side of the field.My husband took this image.
Thank you to "Pluckyfilly"Ann for Awarding my image yesterday and for the vs +Cs from everyone else ,but last night after I came in I only had enough strength to vote and no comments. I have some rust for you on the trailer Mick.Smile

V2----My husband in the barn while I throw the bales in.
V3----More in the field(Taken from top of trailer as the tractor was going)
V4----I must have a rest,then off to the field for some more.

We had three trailer load

Yes Margaret ,they were lighter than normal after all the sun we've had,and they have been left on the field for a few days and that makes them even lighter ,but still quite heavy when you come to my age.SmileNetta

A good reportage set of your activities on the farm, Netta, and in this weather and even in the evening, it must have been a struggle in the heat.
And it is nice to be able to put a face to a name.

Great to see you and the farm and see what goes on nowadays.
I love V3 - a wonderful country scene.

you poor lass I feel for you in this heat but what has to be done has to be done and your doing a grand job, little comfort end of the day when you feel so tired (perhaps I dont want to be a farmer after all)Wink Love V3 perhaps you know the answer to this question - why are farmers round here doing round bales this year and not oblong as I see in your image?

Good stuff Netta and all carried out with a smile. Lovely to put a face to your images but you should tell your husband to get on with his work instead of taking photographs.
A lovely foursome. It must be that time of the year again. Well done Netta.

OMG! Looks like hard work, but with all that Nature around you I am sure it's a much more healthy way of living that us in London commuting in a stuffy dusty smelly oven called the London Underground... Lovely sequence of photos... I would rather be there than here...

yes I must agree you are a healthy strong lady!!
Sometimes I really have to drag myself to do something in the garden after work, but we got to do it even more so when it is hot!
like the barn view best, well composed!.

Guess we miss out on a few city attractions ('why don't you just rent that lens for a few days and decided whether you want to buy it' some chap told me on the forum ) or just go and buy a bra or a lens cap.. no for us country folks it is all mail order, only now it is internet and not the catalogues.

But I would not change our way of life for the world, I know where my milk and eggs come from, the yoghurt or the cheese, the fruit and veggies! All the plants and critters are right there,too. The only thing i really miss here is a coast, used to live only 30 kms from the sea.
