Making firewood …

Remember the box elder tree that we cut down? (Technically, we cut half of it down.)



We loaded the chunks of wood onto our flat bed trailer …  to make room for our new shed ….


… and there the wood has sat ever since. We were a bit concerned about all of the weight on the trailer. So, what does a 70-year old man who just had a heart attack do? He rents a wood (log) splitter.

The splitting part goes quite easily. But the picking up wood and throwing it on the wood pile is a lot of work.(It took him a couple of days to recover.)


Some of the pieces were just too big for the splitter. They will have to be cut up some other way – but, for now, at least they are off the trailer. As you can see, we have wood for many  bonfires – once it dries out. (Our favorite sport is having bonfires.)



And, for a while … there will be no more splitting.

Thanks for reading! I hope you will return.
