Smooth Bedstraw, which is an invasive plant. (Pretty and dainty though.)
Livie, taking pictures with Gilbert waiting patiently.
Owen bought a new discbine, which cuts hay differently than the haybine
It tosses the hay out more than haybine, which is more like a regular mower

The first bale to be wrapped. They are only wrapped like this if they are intended for haylage or baleage, which is basically fermented hay. Owen and Cody were doing haylage here because they hay was too wet for dry hay and it was supposed to rain really hard that night.
It spins the platform with the bale on it, around in a circle
We were all fascinated
And then, when it is all wrapped up, Owen tips the platform and the bale rolls off.
