Mowed pasture. Now what?

So I finally mowed the main part of the pasture. About 4 acres of approximately 5 acres. It took 3 days. So far. Hacked some thistles and tall woody weeds with machete and hand held trimmer first. Went through 2 rolls of vinyl trimmer string and 5 pair of thick vinyl cutter blades. Took down other sections with walk behind “string” (thick vinyl) trimmer. Went through half a roll of that “string.” Took on the rest with John Deere X330, at the highest setting. It’s not designed to mow 24+” high grass and weeds, so I had to stop a lot when it clogged up. But it looks better. And, come spring, I should be able to mow it with the riding mower. Ct

What do I do with the grass/weed cuttings?

Slipped away from increasingly stressful, disordered, random, and violent urban life after 4 decades to live in peace and attempt to steward a small farm that eventually helps pay the bills.
