Wood, wood and more wood

Last Monday Neil volunteered to help out at Neroche Forest moving some wood that had previously been felled.  Glad it wasn’t this Monday as it has done nothing but rain today, but last Monday was better weather so not too bad for working in.  Neil was one of about 20 volunteers who moved masses of logs up hill to where they could be trucked away.  At the end of the day, all the volunteers were able to fill their cars with some of the wood, so Neil brought home a boot full  (For US readers a trunk full).

The wood was stacked in our garage and left to dry out.  Neil will then have to use his chainsaw to cut it up into pieces small enough to go into the woodburners.  But this was a great haul and a great reward for his work, as wood is a form of currency around here, where most people have woodburners, and to buy in wood to burn is expensive.

If this rain continues and it gets any colder we shall have to think about lighting a fire!!

    What a great haul that Neil brought home! It’s pouring rain here now and has been all day, but we have not had much rain at all this month and we need it – at least the garden and the grass needs it! Have a great day & light a fire!
