Janice and I recently went to help cut the local natural burial ground Pentiddy – https://pentiddy.co.uk/. We started mowing at 6:00am knowing it was going to get hot, wise to cut while dew is still in grass, acts as a lubricant and easier.
A great day was had by all at Keveral’s fantastic, and fun Open Day on Saturday the 27th May.
Hopefully this will be an annual event, and, hopefully too, Skyegrove will be hosting their own Open Day in the very near future.
The highlight of the Open Day was the Man-v-Machine Competition. All three contestants were well supported by the good-natured crowd.
So! — Was Mark ‘Bertie Bertollini’s’ mower knobbled? Will there be a revenge / grudge match at Skyegrove?
Let’s hope so! — Something we can all look forward to!
Don’t forget! — This weekend the wonderful craft fair, including scything competitions, at Muchelney, Somerset will be taking place (see our previous post Green Scythe Fair). Not to be missed!
After winning the Scything Championship the weekend before, Kevin gave a Scything Demo at Skyegrove on Saturday the 18th of June 2016.
The time taken to complete the 1/4 acre field was 57 minutes 50 seconds, however, Kevin did stop to talk to someone for around 5 minutes.
Please enjoy the video of the demo below:-
