The skies cleared and I had about 3.5 hours of dry weather this afternoon to move the wood in my wood pile. I’m moving the older, over sized dry wood (for my wood stove) under the carport to stack and will be cut to size, too fit my wood stove. I moved the wood racks around to make stacking the wood for easier access and set up an area for cutting and storing kindling. I have 2 cords of Doug fir incoming this week so getting the wood racks prepared for incoming fire wood is important for my heating plan this winter.
I’m trying a new supplier of wood and paying as I go. Mom says she will buy up some of the wood to mitigate my initial cost for wood. Over all I feel okay about the wood buy, but we will see if the wood is worth the cost.
Just took delivery of the wood and the carport is darn full. I suspect I got at least 1.5 + cords of mixed fire wood mostly cut /split and ready to burn. Perhaps it is Karma helping me on the good side since I got screwed on wood deliveries a few years ago. I’ll need to stack the wood to see how much fire wood I have on hand. Money is going to be a little tight getting this fire wood delivery before I planned for getting wood this year, but getting stocked up on wood this early will pay off this summer and into winter. I’m good on money, as I can deal with taking a hit of $250.00 either good or bad easily.
Physically I’m going to be toast Tuesday, after moving the fire wood and wood racks around the yard. I have a 2 cord wood delivery on the 22nd so I’ll be in recovery mode the 21st.
The cole crop garden beds seem to be thriving after opening up the Agri-bon frost cloth. It seems that this week is going to be good for cool weather crops getting a good start for growing.
