Hay Bales  
This is one of my favourite things ever.

I absolutely love the sight of fields full of hay bales at this time of year. It's really relaxing. Like everything's okay, whatever awful things are happening in the world, because nature is carrying on in its usual way. And the fields are such a beautiful colour, this warm gold that lights up the day, even if the sky is dark.

This isn't my picture. I'm nothing like that good a photographer. It's from a website I found called Socksoff - http://www.socksoff.co.uk/walls09.html. Fab wallpapers in different sizes, and incredible quality.


P.S. Sorry if it stretches your screen. I don't know how to change it. *hides*

Both things are also for the winter.
the difference is that hay should be completely dry and it shouldn't rain on it.
Silage on the other hand can be also a little bit wet.
when the weather situation isn't great, it's easier to make silage and not hay. There's also a fermentation process within the bales. not sure how I should explain. hope you have an idea about it.

I thought there might be an element of fermentation about it, but I wasn't sure about that. Thanks for the explanation. It's one of those things that vaguely niggle you for not knowing, but aren't quite important enough to go and investigate. I would have gone forever without knowing! *lol* (Hate not knowing things.)
