Now that the basement is full of wood to keep us warm this winter, it’s time to start getting our wood put up for next year. That means we spend a few weekends cutting, splitting, and stacking our firewood. This year we’re cutting an area by the main garden in the back, the trees are big enough to shade part of the garden for a decent part of the day. The roots are also most likely starting to steal nutrients from the crops. It’s always nice when one chore helps something else, killing two birds with one stone so to speak. It’s not technically working in the garden, but the work will help the garden.
It will be really interesting to see how different the garden looks without all the shade from this patch of woods. Hopefully in the future I’ll have a small orchard in the spot we’re clearing, though that will definitely take a few years of work to accomplish!
