The firewood chore -- done early!

We used only two cords of firewood this winter, which means we have two leftover, a first. Usually we have a little left over, but not this much. I made a third cord yesterday and today by cutting down an overgrown ash tree that was in the way of our big hoophouse project. It made nearly a cord, all by itself. So, if next winter is as mild as this one, we have more than enough firewood already. Climate change does have some benefits, although I'm not sure I'd want it to get warmer than this in March.

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
