Trouble with Hay ~ Learning from Magazines
Our last hay provider has told us that "it's just not worth the hassle" when we asked why he was not going to grow it next year.
Each year we locate hay, we run into this. We will most likely have to grow it ourselves in the near future.
For now, we need to save money and repair one barn roof, and buy up what he has left, and store it up in a loft. Prices have gone up to $3.00/bale, and straw up to $2.50/bale.
While walking on the treadmill, I actually read a magazine. I thought I had purchased "Backwoods Home" but brought home "Back Home" magazine.
There was a lot of information packed into that magazine. I learned that witch hazel can be used to help dry up poison ivy, I learned tips on raising a milk cow and drinking raw milk, I learned tips on raising beef, and so much more.
