Hay making

Over the past week we have been striming the forest garden pasture to allow the sheep to winter graze it for a while. It occurred to us that we wanted to recycle as much of our old tent as we could, so as you can see we have made it into a dry airy space to dry hay. We gathered the piles if grass and laid it on racks in the tent. Every day I fluffed the hay and turned it. After a week it was dry and sweet smelling, so we gave bagged it in large a hay net and hung it up for use in the winter. Next week Becs will try and and dry a bit more.
