Scything

Posted by John Athayde about 1 month ago

I picked up a scythe from ScytheSupply last year and have been perfecting my technique. Now mowing the orchard with the scythe to get last year's growth and this year's first cutting cleared out. Lots of thatch present, so it's a lot slower going than a well-mowed area.
