Making “Swiss rolls” in the fields

There was a lot of noise the other day in the field right by our garage.  The farmer had cut all the grass down and had brought his tractor in to bale it up.  It was quite ingenious.  This tractor drove over the cut grass and pulled the grass up and and formed it into a bale and then shot it out the back.

Next another piece of machinery comes along, picks up the bale and shrink wraps it in black plastic.  This is clever stuff, it just winds the black plastic all round the bale and then shoots it off into the field.

The black plastic wrapping machinery

The two tractors worked right across the field until all the cut grass was baled up and wrapped in black plastic to protect it.  You can see all this from the guest bedroom window.

    I actually thought this was those sponge & jam Swiss Rolls! Oops, my error.

    I wonder what it feels like to drive a tractor! I reckon kids would love that…
