'sonly May but....

Memorial Day just went by, but that is no reason not to start getting wood ready for winter. Here is my first 1/4 cord of the year.

Felled, cut, hauled, split and stacked in less than a day. I only need to do this about 20 more times.

The wood is mostly beech and a little birch. I love burning beech, it burns hot and long. Its tough to split, espically by hand as I usually do.

When its 80 deg F in the house during a sub-zero day in February and I have to crack the sliding door to cool the house down, the work is well worth it.

Plus, Who can say no to free heat?
