Can Bernd use the scythe?
Protip: only nu-males mow the lawn.

I weild imidazole and imidazole accessories

I used it few times, but I can't say that I'm good user of scythe. Although it isn't very hard to use it.

>Protip: only nu-males mow the lawn.

But grass near house need to be cut, and scythe isn't really good tool for this I think. Lawnmower allows you to cut grass to same height, and works good even in low grass. Using scythe in low grass is harder and requires skill (and sharp scythe too).

Of course if you need to preserve cut grass (for feeding livestock or something) scythe is better tool than lawnmower, because lawnmower chops grass to small pieces.

My comment was swallowed D:

I said I wield imidazole and imidazole accessories. Meaning the lab is my home.

Meaning you use herbicides to regulate your lawn?

I see your posts.

Fukken saved.
>I can't say that I'm good user of scythe.
Practice makes perfect. Or imperfect if one practices things in the wrong way.
>Using scythe in low grass is harder and requires skill (and sharp scythe too).
That's why only nu-males use lawnmover.
>and sharp scythe too
Yeah, that's another trick has to be learnt if one wants to use a scythe. But peening is more difficult (which I've never tried).
>scythe isn't really good tool for this
That's true. Especially at the first grow of the year. The "mother-grass" is bitch to cut with that.
>Of course if you need to preserve cut grass (for feeding livestock or something) scythe is better tool than lawnmower
Yup. Also for thatching or litter for animals or whatever.

Byproducts and concrete, I have no home, just a lab, which is my "home away from home" cliche due to family circumstances involving a psycho parent.

Without looking up in a translator I'll go ahead and guess: kasza means some mushy meal made of grains, like oatmeal.

Many commieblock inhabitants own small gardens on outskirts of the city, I think you don't know much about the slav ways.
Do you use opera by any chance? I don't see post sometimes too which I didn't experience on mozilla, but you can view them by pressing Preview.

I can. I was taught by a top practitioner who tours giving demonstrations. Conventional and Austrian.

It's all about keeping the blade level and using your waist to do the turn, keeping your arms rigid. Be careful of hidden stones, I fucked a blade on a stone once. Also it can be used to cut grass, I've done it, but it takes a very long time compared to a mower.

That's a solution.

Island Slavs don't have enough space for that. Even those who have gardens... seriously I couldn't make a good slash with a scythe there, the blade would stuck in the fence.

Very good.
One can avoid stones by reaping only a thin slice of vegetation so one can see the obstacles coming.
The outer edge (the spine?) of the blade can trace the ground lightly.

Bernd 05/03/2018 (Thu) 13:43:22 [Preview] No.16275 del
Like an allotment? We have those but usually there isn't any grass as people just use them for growing vegetables.
>Island Slavs
Surprisingly accurate tbh
And yeah UK gardens are shit tier unless you live in the countryside. Not only are they too small but the soil is usually low quality too.

Reaping is a very meditative activity as well. As it's repetitive it can be done on autopilot after a while and turn off the thoughts. Or just the opposite: you can concentrate on whatever you want.

It's also a very progressive and sustainable technology which could help battle the scarcity of resources (first and foremost oil).
You only need to buy it once - with a sharpening stone - and you're set for life. Even your children can use it later. No "planned obsolescence", no fuel consumption, no CO emission.

This can be true for mowers too. t. still using my granddad's old push mower

Not everyone has his gramp's stuff to make good use of it. Most people by stuff new. And recent products are turds.

A small Hungarian town, Keszthely, is usually associated with a nice baroque building, the Festetics Palace:
However the town also provides home for an agricultural museum where one can find Hungary's last plowing engine. It's a Fowler Z II type double-engine and was built by John Fowler & Co. Ltd in 1910 in Leeds. It served for 52 years the Hungarian agriculture and then was gifted to the museum. They restored it in the '90s to working condition and made a test plowing in 1998.
Working process: the two steam engine is parked by the edge of the field and they alternately drag the plow from one side of the field to another with the help of steel cables. After several turns one machine is moved up few meters while the other finish dragging the plow. Very interesting system.

I tried but i cannot into kosa(scythe)

Bernd 07/08/2018 (Sun) 07:02:14 [Preview] No.17803 del
Thing is about kosa that it needs lot of practice. First one has to concentrate on what he is doing to do it more or less orderly and repeat it again and again. I have a pal with larger flat(-ish) property I learned there basically.

Was some talks about teaching the public workers who mow green public spaces the use of scythe instead of bushcutters and such. I'm ahead of my time it seems.

Fuck these fucks with their electric lawnmowers.
It's low buzzing noise sounds similar to wasps' and almost makes me check if one flies around. And sometimes if a close neighbour do it and I happen to hunt a wasp/hornet it masks it's buzz and can't hear where the fucker is, makes my orienting harder.
I hope they won't notice these little fuckers while they mow their shit and they'll get bitten.

I'm not scared of a little bush but trimmed is nicer. Also it's mandatory around here to keep the yard/garden somewhat tidy. I think to prevent pollen get into the air or something like this.

In the absence of maintenance your grass may very well be outcompeted by random weeds.

Bernd 05/13/2019 (Mon) 05:14:15 [Preview] No.25898 del
That too.
Tho some level of unkemptness is fine since some plants others might consider weed can grow, such as nettle, dandelion or swallowwort (Chelidonium majus). Also muh mint and lemon balm. Or wild strawberry. Depending on the circumstances tiny micro-bioms can form with their characteristical flora (and fauna).

It's really about personal circumstances. I had the opportunity to learn it from someone. And practice it somewhere. And for a certain extent I was kinda forced to use it since didn't have alternative.
