Field Raked & Baled!

Being a 'city' girl, now a 'gentlewoman' farmer, I have never watched a field go from the tall grasses to bales before. 
 
The first day the field was cut and then the grasses were turned or they call it tedding... then 2nd day they tedded again between 11 am and 1 pm.  Third day, today, they tedded again, then they raked it (with a machine - see the blue tractor), which puts it in piles in rows so it can be baled.  I thought the patterns he created were beautiful! 
 
And now I have more hay in the barn! 
17 days...
