Rakish (rey’-kish) adjective smart; jaunty; dashing
For those of you unfamiliar with making hay, I will give a short explanation of how it works. You cut the ripe grass with a swather, which lays it out in long rows called windrows. Once the top of that cut grass dries down, it is raked. My farmer is raking the hay in these photos. Raking the hay turns the windrow over so the grass underneath can dry, it can also combine two windrows into one larger row, thereby creating less work for the baler. The baler rolls or presses the hay into bales, wrapping them with twine, wire or mesh. Viola – haying 101.
I love the connectedness technology allows. And I love My ‘rakish’ Farmer.
