First cut is the hardest!
The orchard grass got its first cut of the year on Wednesday. The grass was very long and still a bit wet, but it has to be done sometime, and Wednesday was the day. Strength mustered, oil topped up & fuel added to the mower and lots of determination saw the job done, but it took all and a bit more of the 2 hour session we had. So many trips to empty the grass collector! Still, we do have all of the cuttings on the compost heap now, so that should provide a good bit of moisture & nitrogen to the compost to enrich the beds later in the season.
