We had a dinky little tractor whizzing around the meadow at work today. It was dragging a seed harvester around, collecting seeds from the huge variety of flower heads on the site. It doesn’t cut at all, more like a big bag that drags across the stems with the seeds being collected inside.
It didn’t take long to do the entire field, which will now be cut in the next few days or so. The seeds are being taken to another site to be spread around, introducing the rich mix of species to the new fields.
