Morning Walk, August 21,2009

Yesterday’s walk didn’t produce any wildlife pictures because of the activity around here, cutting and bailing hay. Tractors and a lot of noise puts the wild things way back in the thick stuff.
My thirty acre, hay field, Sudan grass, produced one hundred and eleven, big, round bales. The record, year before last, was one hundred and sixty-seven bales! Last years crop, ruined by lack of rain, was a mighty, six bales. You take the good with the bad!
Here is a prepared, four acre, coastal Bermuda, field that will yield up to eight bales.
The serious stuff, dove hunting, starts a week from this coming Tuesday and if we don’t get any real strange weather, we’re expecting a great crop of mourners, white wings and ring necks!
