Straw bales are an important part of winter survival gear for us country folk. Most years my very thoughtful neighbours across the highway give me enough straw bales to get me through the season, but since they didn't put any crops in this year we were on our own this time. Well, that is until 'Other Side of the Valley' Lisa put together a little straw co-op. Five of us got together and purchased 120 bales.
One hundred and twenty bales ready to roll!
Our 'take' was 30 bales. Ten of those will insulate the water line to the garage and the other 20 will be keeping the dogs warm and cozy for the winter!
Lisa will be using her 30 for her dogs and her sheep.
In addition Eve and Sandy's horses will be warm for the winter, as will Stacey's dogs and garden!!
One more 'pre-winter' task checked off on the list!!
