Learning to scythe in buttercups

Scything course
My first Learn to Scythe course of the season took place this week at Brigflatts in Cumbria. It’s a site I’ve used a couple of times before and it’s great to see how the grass is improving thanks to the regular mowing.

There was a full group of eight beginners booked on who enjoyed bright sunshine and a field of beautiful soft grasses and buttercups. They were brilliant students and in the afternoon quickly cut a neat 500m2 before we returned to our base for the peening lesson.
