We have had frosts at night and temps into the 90s during the day during the last 2-3 weeks. But not near enough rain. However, the Hay season in southern Maine has been wonderful overall. Many hay farmers got a full 3 crops of hay in this year. My pastures are not quite bowls of dust yet. The soil is very sandy here and we are making new soil to add as fast as we can by mixing and composting the horse manure, mulch hay, composted cow manure and loam. This is the second growing season since It was stumped and seeded. It is the first year of being grazed and bush hogged to keep the weeds from seeding. I am not dissatified. It needs improving but each year it will get a bit better. And I do like the dryness for the health of the horses hooves. This picture was taken Sep 20th by my daughter who came and stayed at the farm so we could be at the Common Ground fair.
This one was taken mid August:
