Silage in at last

About three weeks later than usual, but truth be told a good crop and got in decent conditions.
It was cut late Monday, a rather damp day and needed all of Tuesday to even mostly dry.
By this morning only the thickest bits were still wet underneath.
They arrived about 9am and were done by 1:30pm

The clamp needed a bit of work though, as the new lad buckraking had made too much of a ridge down the middle so I leveled it about with the loader and have been rolling most of the afternoon.
I'll do the sheet tomorrow, it is a good half day job at best of times.

There's less than last year but we are one field down due to reseeding, if that had been there it would have been similar.
Hoping to do rather more bales of 2nd cut!
I ordered some more fertiliser for it and will put a bit more on than some years.
The reseeded field might realistically be worth cutting late August time too.
