Kiss Kiss

These nice men have come to investigate possible sites for a new mobile mast shared by two operators!
After most of two decades being frequently annoyed by no service, finally it should happen with a year or two.

We are in one of the first areas covered by the 'MIP'
Mobile Infrastructure Project

Baled up

One of the easiest hay making seasons in years.
Grass was top quality too and a reasonable number of bales considering the slow start to growth this year.

First hay baled

Cut last Friday, spread on Saturday and Monday. the top two fields which were reseeded last year and the year before.
There’s about 160 bales off 12 acres so not a bad crop considering it looked quite light when I cut it!
Exceptionally green leafy stuff.
It was 25C most of the afternoon and the main tractor still doesn’t have air-con!

Tomorrow looks like being quite dull again at least until afternoon so probably cutting the last two proper fields as the other one I have down won’t quite be ready – though it could be OK if it were sunny again from mid-morning.
