We have loaded all the logs into Ally the gator….

And popped them in the barn ready for splitting and stacking!!

All the branches are piled high in the fields, I think either for hauling to the barn to pass through the chipper ready for paths or for making more beacon fires…. Probably for the chipper on the next wet day!!

We are making good progress on June log piles ready for the log fired stove/heating system and cooker!! And plus we are freeing up valuable stream bank space for spring ready for the planting of the basketry willows!! Or Salix purpurea!! Can’t wait for all those fabulous colours to be there in winter!!!
