Whenever I get into something new, I tend to get carried away easily and race into the crazy fine details immediately.

So anyway that's why making a loaf of #bread this weekend led me to googling "grow wheat in back yard".

@mike Not from the mainstream stores, but lots of smaller specialist stores carry them ... Mostly from an Austrian supplier, it seems ...

@yojimbo I wonder how much it'd cost to get a scythe made locally ...

Paging @dadegroot :awesome:

@matt @mike @yojimbo @dadegroot FWIW when it comes to scything may I recommend Alexander Langlands' book Craeft which is about the various ways of thinking about working, particularly with old techniques

@matt @mike @yojimbo @dadegroot also, I knew a guy who worked for a council as a maintenance gang worker, who said they had a man who could scythe areas of grass you couldn't easily mow with a ride-on or push mower

@liamvhogan @matt @yojimbo @dadegroot did he go around wearing a long, loose, black robe as he did it?
