Scythe haymaking video

I made this video during the Scythe Improvers and peening courses I ran in August with clips of the group learning to mow in the orchard, hammering and cutting weeds on a slope. It also includes the haymaking Edward, Christiane and I did in the days afterwards. Although we had an amazingly wet summer I can honestly say that I only spent one morning with my raincoat on and that the grass cut during my May, June and August courses at Sprint Mill was all made into hay and baled using our hand baler.

While it’s winter outside, why not enjoy a few minutes of summer?

    This is just the tonic I needed after day upon day of rain leaving the horse’s field like a sea of mud …. roll on spring!
