As if the breathtaking views from Janet's house weren't enough, a very short walk took me through these bucolic scenes of the hay harvest here in the Lucerne area.  Large-scale agriculture and huge machines have their place, but I love this more human scale of farming, satisfying to both engineers and lovers of nature.

Nice video. Around here they have much the same process (but without the Alpine backdrop). Some people do the round bales, but others still do the small rectangular ones. I'd never seen the machine that covers the bales with plastic, so that was kind of cool.
