    Default Haying in November.. Lou

    This is nothing of great importance,, Just a thought out loud, I hear voices,, But I do believe the weather is changing,, Middle of November and I just baled the last of the hay,, My first cutting was the 1st of May,, I got five cutting this year.. I live along the gulf coast south of Houston west of Galveston east of San Antonio,, does anyone else live around here?,, wait wrong question,, did anyone else see a big difference this year.. good of bad,, far as crops or the weather? Lou

    It seems that you had plenty of rainfall this year. It seems obvious since you had five cuttings. Good job. Here's wishing you the same results next year.

    No difference up here. We got 1 cut end of June into July. Everyone was done haying before August.

    That was me in the summer of 2011,, I got one cutting in Aug.. it was dry and stemmy,, we got less than 12 inches of rain.. when we average 50 to 60 on a dry year..

    Alright then.

    I've still got some hay on the ground myself. It will go up tomorrow. It should of went up two weeks ago but I've had mower and then baler issues, which lead to it being rained on.
