It's hay season.    Most folks around here do round bales because they last better in our damp climate, but there are some who still do small rectangular bales.

It's a pleasure to see an old tractor pulling a wagon loaded to the sky with small bales.  We passed this place way out in Owen County, just as they were bringing the wagons in.

This place had two wagons full, hauled on a hot and dusty day.    Haying is hard work, done on the hottest and driest days of summer.
The first cut was early this year.   Hopefully we'll have enough rain to get two more big cuts this season. 

It's very likely that this tractor has been in use for decades.   Things were built to last, way back when.

The farmer has been in use for decades, too.  I especially appreciate the jeans, T-shirt and cap.   This is the official uniform of Midwestern farmers. God bless them.
