We've been doing firewood for the last two weeks. It can actually be one of the most enjoyable (and money saving) homesteading tasks... one where boys can proudly carry large arm loads of wood all day long and swing axes with strong arms... one where sisters can work alongside their brothers and drive them nuts...
So here we go:

I have more updates, but they'll be coming soon since I'm out of picture space for this post. (Strange... I've made bigger pictorial posts before... oh well.)
Wow, I miss chopping wood (or at least being the annoying sister while my brothers did the work) but since my Father started working at Weyerhouser we get all the left over scrap wood that has been chopped up by machines, so very little cutting is involved. I also do not have brothers that live at home anymore, so it is easier on my Father's back to get pre-chopped wood.ReplyDelete
Well, thank you for sharing. I enjoyed.
