The farmer has come back with his son:

One tractor rowed up all the grasses that had been cut a week ago and the second tractor came along the row and sucked it all into the baler. Within half an hour both meadows had been completed and 47 bales stood where once there were 6 acres of flowers and waving grasses.

This is the first time we have reached such a high pinnacle of achievement by actually getting both meadows cut and at more or less the proper time. It will be interesting to see what happens to the meadows during the next couple of months when things are still growing. Correct meadow management would require that anything that subsequently grows (the ‘aftermath’) should be grazed off by animals.

And it will also be interesting to see if this achievement now means that there is a consequent improvement next year in the quality of what we have here.
