The rakes are made

On Sunday a wee group turned out to try their hand at making hay rakes for next month’s meadow cutting.
The tines were made by hammering some dry birch though a round hole.
The heads are ash and the handles some ash or hazel poles.
We’ve made all the design faults so we can tell you how not to make them and maybe make our next ones differently – however, the proof will be next month when we try them out on the meadow at Gullet.
