Harvest basket for small grains

We made a simple harvest container out of a small plastic waste basket, with a rope added to hang it around the back of the neck. With this in front of you, you can strip off the seed pods with both hands, as you move slowly through the field. When it is full,walk to a garden cart parked nearby, and dump it in.Today,I am picking oats,but spelt and rye are harvested much the same.
