The rest of the field made 51 bales, which we split, each getting 25 and a half bales. (We didn't really split a bale. I gave that one to him, too.) He then wanted to know how many I wanted to keep. I settled on 12 bales, so he said he'd pay me for the other 14. Then he asked how much I wanted a bale. I didn't know the going rate, nor did he, but he suggested $35 a bale this year, but sort of hinted it might be more next year. He then wrote me a check before he left.
Definitely not like last year! PTL!
