Firewood – stuff you need to do when it’s still dry

Since I do not have a trailer, I just loaded Mary up.
Firewood in Mary

While it’s so nice and warm, one tends to forget about winter. However the next winter will be coming. So I went down into the forest for a few hours and chopped some of the big pines into smaller pieces and already split some of them, all stuff that we felled last year in August.

You can only get down into the forest when dry, it’s pretty slopy and in winter when everything is wet, there’s no getting back up with the car, not even with a 4×4. The digger driver we had one winter to build the shelter had severe issues getting back up the hill.

Since we only have a horse float that I probably would not be able to get back up the hill (I have never tried but don’t want to), I just loaded Mary’s boot up with the firewood. Note: Mary is our 4×4, everything with motor or soul has a name at our place. Who needs a trailer?

A video a friend made in summer two years ago. The horse shelter was still under construction at that time. The flightover shows our alpacas in the lower paddock and gives an impression of our lovely hillside spot.

Crisp winter mornings are fun to watch with the fog and the clouds moving, building up and disappearing again.

Flood water fun

The first flood this winter has arrived. Usually, we have 2 or more of those events, but this year is the first time we have been having some fun in it. After all, why not?

Winter is officially here

Rain and mild temperatures have led winter to the land. The trees have dropped their leaves and the moss started to grow. Browns and greens and the dominating colours, the red and yellows have almost gone.
