Make hay while the sun shines!

The sun is shining so we are making hay! The grass has been cut in Ippikin's meadow so now we are turning it and hoping that the weather stays nice enough for it to dry. Removing the grass will reduce the nutrient level in the limestone soil which will encourage more rare plants, like orchids.
