May Hay

We had our first Scythe Course of the season on Saturday. It was a really excellent day. The course was full with participants both local and from further afield. As well as the scythe teaching there was plenty of interesting conversation over lunch and tea breaks, covering scything and grass of course and a wide range of other topics besides.

Here’s Phil and I, enjoying the late evening sunshine while flipping the windrows cut on the course. The beginning of the process of turning the grass into May hay.
