So the saying, 'Make hay while the sun shines,' really means that you need to do the work when the conditions are favorable. You can't 'make hay' when it's raining, because then it gets all wet. It looks like it's going to be a sunshiny week, too. Hopefully we can get the second cutting done before it rains again.
It seems like all the farmers are chopping today. I saw two choppers going down the road at 7:00am. I know farmers like to have a day off. But when the sun is shining, it's hard to stay out of the fields. That saying is popular for a reason!
