Bark, a reliable source of interesting textures. Pretty sure this is a sycamore.

Now there is something you don't see very often, haystacks. Or have you figured out time travel .

LOL, Going around the Amish farms is like time travel, but those are actually wheat shocks.

hay stacks, I believe, were bigger and taller

although I confess the only time I ever saw any was in a production of " Oklahoma "

now when I was in high school, I was occasionally grunt labor on farms and work in the hay fields which included throwing hay bales [ rectangular shaped ] up into the barns.

now you don't see hay bales but the big wheels of hay

People who hay completely by hand--using scythe, one-person hand rakes, and hay forks--will rake hay into small stacks called stooks as a step between raking the hay into windrows and making large hay stacks. If you know hay isn't going to be dry enough to stack before the end of the day, it's a good idea to rake it into stooks to protect most of it from the night's dampness and morning dew. In the morning, after the dew has dried, a stook can then be raked out so that the hay can dry further.

I was grunt labor

I grew up in a small rural town,

to those from a larger urban community I was a country hick

to those from the true agricultural community I was a city slicker

I knew enough to know the difference between a bull, a steer and a cow

not a lot of knowledge I admit but important to know I didn't want to grow up as a steer.
