© Copyright 2009 FarmgirlFare.com, the greener than green, Ireland-has-nothing-on-us-this-month foodie farm blog where hay feeding season is finally over (with even a few emergency bales left to spare) and all of the sheep are now grazing on lush spring grass—which means, of course, that it's time to put up hay again. Unfortunately the big old tractor we use to cut and bale hay died this winter—in what appears to be a very permanent way. At least Joe managed to get the little diesel one going again. We're hoping to rent a big tractor from a friend for haying—as soon as they can get it fixed. It's old, it's paid for, and it sometimes even runs is definitely the motto around here!


  1. I've got my fingers crossed that you get it up and running!

  2. Gorgeous green meadow!! So beautiful!, and the work never ends, huh? Thanks again for sharing your beautiful farm, land and animals - I truly consider it to be a very special treat!

  3. How beautiful! All that lush green-ness!

  4. "It's old, it's paid for, and it sometimes even runs "could be the motto for our bodies! All that lovely grass - would be wonderful but then we'd also have to live through your colder and longer winters. How can it be haying time already - too fast - time is getting by too fast!

  5. What a beautiful photo! I hope that your tractor situation turns out for the best. :)

  6. Broken machinery can induce rage like nothing else around our house. It's a good thing we don't have a big tractor, because we would also have an old, feeble one, and it would always be broken, and we would always be cussing.

    Perhaps we should look into anger management classes . . .

  7. We're just putting up our first cutting now. It's a few weeks late, but it's the first hot/dry spell that we've had!


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!
