Playing With My Wood: October 15 2019

in actifit •  10 months ago 

With the amount on the ground it is seeming a constant. Yesterday I spent a few hours hauling cut up branches from the various piles around the farm and dumping them next to the wood pile. After the multitude of trees that I have dealt with the past month there have been little piles of branches left everywhere, so it was time to get them gathered before the weather really hits.

It took me 8 heaping wheelbarrow loads like this one, with some being pushed hundreds of feet to make it to the yard and wood pile, to get the bulk of it moved. I will admit that half the loads were moved all of 50 feet, but still a lot of tossing, stacking and moving was involved. This reminds me I need to air up the tire on my wheelbarrow today.

I managed to get all the wood stacked up and now have 4.5 cords of wood stacked. I have had to figure out the math, which is simple, for the volume of the stack. 4x4x8=128 cu ft for a normal wood pile cord, so I am taking 128 and dividing by 4 (width) which is 32. I then divide 32 by the 6 ft height which equals 5 1/3 feet. So for every 5 1/3 lineal feet of the wood pile I have 1 cord of wood. I have 24 feet stacked which is 4.5 cords of wood.

A bit later I removed the black plastic I had up on the patio rails to protect against the rain splashes and installed a pair of dual wall lexan sheets. They make the patio a lot nicer by having the translucent coloring and rigid structure. This will help keep the patio drier this weather season. I would like to fully enclose the patio so we would have another area that we could count as living space year round. It wouldn’t be the warmest but would insulate better than nothing.

Today is more of weather prep and yard cleanup. Part of the problem with having young kids, land, and busy days is that I neglect to clean up their mess for too long. I find myself getting annoyed at the messes but just don’t take the time to clean them up. Prioritization is hard when everything seems like a top or high priority.

Firewood is an excellent way to get your @actifit steps!👍😊

I also cut and burn firewood it is work!!
Someone once said....You get warm when you cut firewood.
You get warm again when you stack and split firewood.
Then you get warm a third time when you burn firewood!!😊💪🤗

Very true too! I won't have room for all the rounds I have so I will be able to split in the winter when it is cold and I want to work off some energy and warm up.
Firewood, a chore that keeps you warm...... FOREVVVVVVER!!! Lol!

Oh wow that’s beautiful!!! Got my chainsaw all tuned up and ready to do some work tomorrow if the rain holds out. I have about 10 downed trees in our woods I need to work on!

I got my new chain before bucking the monster fir and OMG has it been amazing, I have yet to touch it. What kind of trees?

Mostly firs and Oakes, some pine. Oh and a lot of elm. Not really familiar with them though as far as firewood goes
