Weather absolutely SUCKS for making hay. The sheet of ice that laid on the ground for ~6 weeks did a number on young alfalfa. Wet, cold spring stunted everything weeks late. Then the sun came out a few days and the temps shot up, and holy crap did stuff grow. So did the humidity. Extremely slow going, just can't get stuff to dry. We finally have a clear/ sunny forecast, but....WTF is up with the sky? It's like a very high altitude haze, and things feel weird and damp.....Can't friggin' win!

I am scared to cut anything, even with the next 4-5 days forecasted hot and sunny, the humidity is high, no westerly winds, and fields are wet. I think I will wait, maybe next week start.

And yes lots of winterkill on last years seeding, which is disappointing because it looked so good going into the winter.
