a sickle or better yet - your trusty weed wacker - just slowly
wack away at the grass, keeping some neatness to your form.
you'll have to come back and get this stuff later - don't want to be
scrounging around for it now...
Let the cuttings sit
where they fall in the sun for a day. Then with a rake flip it
over like a pancake, and let dry again for another day in the sun. By
the next evening it should be ready to haul up.
You can attempt to bail
it by putting long strings criss-crossed in the bottom of a box or wheel
barrow, then pile it on so that it falls in line like piles of sticks.
Pack it then tie it up tight. Remove from the box or barrow and
store in a dry place.
