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 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.

Close by mooing!!

We woke the other day to loud bassy mooing.  When we looked out of our bedroom window a number of differently coloured cows had been moved into the field behind our garage.

On closer inspection we realised they were steers as they had horns!

It really makes you feel like you like in the country to hear mooing so close by.

Swiss rolls in the fields

Our local farmer has been busy, cutting the grass in the fields behind our garage to make forage.  The result has been some lovely “swiss rolls ” in the fields.

If we walk down our lane, these fields are on the right hand side.  If you stop at the gate and peer through the field, the next picture is the view.  Spot the cows in the fields.  What a lovely view!!

We love watching the changing seasons around here.  You definitely feel more at one with nature than living in a town. You notice things you wouldn’t normally notice such as the fields and the different hedgerow flowers.
