Pepino and the storks

Hay making

We’ve got a push along petrol mower and several fields that needed mowing and we were wondering how this would get done.  Or perhaps we would just let the fields grow for a while.  Then a neighbour showed up.  Actually the nephew of the person we bought the land from.  Apparently he has mowed the fields for the past 15 years and used the hay for his cows.  He offered us money for the hay, but we didn’t know where to start in terms of putting a value on it.  So we agreed that he would give us honey and potatoes and the use of his digger in exchange.

We’re all happy with that, including the storks who followed the tractor around looking for things to eat!
