Keep Those Hay Bales Comin'

© Copyright 2008, the award-winning blog where the most important thing we learned during haying season this year is that you always need to double check the shear bolts (and anything else) the kid at the local hardware store picks out for you, because returning the ones that are the wrong size makes for an hour of driving, a lot of frustration, and some very expensive bolts considering the price of gas these days. But thanks to my hunky farmguy's masterful skills with duct tape, at least baling operations didn't have to shut down during the mad dash back to town.


  1. Hi Susan, It has been a while since I have visited your blogs. I saw your new dogs. They are so cute! I have only skimmed thru past posts,but it looks like you are starting a bread bakery. How wonderful! Wishing for you much success.

  2. Even when one doesn't live as isolated as FG and Hunky - having to turn around and spend gas, time and emotions on a trip back to get the "right thing" is a smack in the head. Time is a precious commodity - hope you had something wonderful on the radio and got all music therapied right up!

  3. *delurk*
    love the sunscreen on that tractor! :o) Last week I spent a lot of time reading through your blog archives - awesome! You are an inspiration for a lot of people, methinks.

  4. Wow Square bails! Makes my back hurt just looking at them. I know they are easier to store but I don't envey you going to the top of the barn in 90* weather.
    They do make a lovely picture though.

  5. could you please explain the haying process for those of us who have know idea how it works but would love to find out.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
