They chopped 14 loads today!

What does that mean? It means they emptied 14 wagons of chopped alfalfa onto our concrete pad.

Here's wagonload number one. It's the green mound.

Looks tiny, right? Soon it'll be sky high. After three cuttings, it'll fill the entire cement pad.

This is what chopping looks like:

The tractor broke at one point, but Mike called the dealer and it took them about 10 minutes to fix it.

Kris says 14 loads isn't very many. Let's see how many happen (and breakdowns) tomorrow. Let's hope for a good ratio.
