Wood Up - We seem to have had a woody week last week. Firstly our gate needed repairing, it was in such a state. Rotten wood and a rusty frame all needed renewing. Rogers done a great job, new wood bought, stained and cut to size and reattached plus the frame was repainted. The channel drain (which diverts rain water, so it doesn’t run down the drive) also needed repairing, so that was redone as well. What a difference, so pleased with the result.
Wood In – More wood was delivered, but this is to burn this year. No popping it over the fence this time, but dumped on the drive, right outside the stable for us to stack. Most was in good sized pieces, but some needed chopping. Roger chopped while I moved the wood into barn. Took us about 3 hours to chop and move it all, but a job well done.
Wood Down – We had a few windy days last week which gave us our first tree casualty. It was totally dead so would have fallen eventually. Not to worry, more wood to burn.
