Cut the long grass this week. I leave 1/2 of this area to grow, then I cut it and put it in the garden. Helps keep the weeds down and keep moisture in the ground, if we get any. No rain for 10 days and it been hot. Plus I get some seat time with the loader and rake. Don't get to use them much lately.

Need to figure out a way to rake your windrow next to the garden, then use that thrower and spread it over the garden.  More seat time and less hand work. :thumbs:

I use to do that at our place years ago. I would cut & throw towards the garden then by the time I got done most of it was right next to the garden. I wished I done what your doing with grass. The farmer I get straw from early never had any this year. I bought some from a local hardware store & I got a major mess with weeds.

I used to use an LT with a bagger. Then I would empty the bags between the garden rows and spread it. Any weeds coming through the clippings were few and easy to pull. Good Luck, Rick

  Had a large stump ground recently and stockpiled all the fine chips. They're working great in the veggie garden!!
