Welcome back! I don't think I was on when you was before and Sumi is no longer with us, been 2 years now but she's up in heaven watching over us and pouring all her knowledge and love for becoming self sufficient into all of us. I was reading your post and it sounds like you have had a time with your little farm but I hope you and it is doing better.
Wednesday I went to get hay. We've had temps well over 100 here in the ozarks and very little rain. Round bales are no where to be found and square bales are getting tough to find. I'm actually scared for winter.
