Thanks for the reminder Robin. I got to know Elliot over the phone as I gained an education about scythes and scything.
He was a great person and very good at his work. He did all the artwork for their website and was a professional
graphics artist and sign painter of very high calibre, outstanding in fact. That website will never need any change
except for photos and text.
Later I got to know the Vido's and added significantly to my scythe knowledge. Peter and I used to engage in long
telephone conversations about the value of scything and the need to revive that tradition plus how to set one up -
believe me you learn about that quickly, the tool either works for you or against you. Scythes are vital to my small
market gardening operation on my farm. I can easily outrun any lawnmower in any kind of weed (valuable plants
inconveniently located). Talk about creating a lot of mulch and compost in a hurry...

Maybe we can revive this list. I intend to spend a lot more time here.
I closed my Facebook page so maybe we can stay in tough here with links to our respective websites and blogs.
Hope everyone's Fall and Winter plantings are progressing well and that you
have adequate rain; we have had serious drought here in central NC for many weeks
with little or no letup in sight.
