I'm experimenting with a small plot of Barley this spring. I plan on harvesting with an ancient scythe (after considerable work to get it sharp), but have never used one. I've watched alot of youtube videos about them but I know you can't learn everything from a video.
--anyone with experience using a scythe, do you have any helpful information or suggestions
--I live near Salem, but if anyone in western OR would be willing to show me in person that would be awesome. (maybe I should mention that the Barley shall hopefully end up in some homebrew, some of which would find it's way back to you ) . I can travel to you to learn.
