    Last load on truck yet. Could only get six pieces in truck at a time, too heavy to try and lift over each other,. Biggest one is close to 30" across about 18" thick cooky from there the cookies taper down to about 14" across like the one standing in the picture. Noodle time to get some of them on the splitter

    Excellent! :cool:
    Is BL pretty common up there? I see that So. WI is well out of its natural range...
    I spent my first thirty years there but wasn't a wood nut yet at that point. ;lol

    Gonna love the black locust! Be careful and don't over fire with it; it gets real hot!

    I think a lot of the locusts were ornamental plantings, This one was for sure as I remember when they built the apt complex, the whole place was bulldozed flat. Kinda gives my age away, snicker, and no I am not going to take a close up picture so you can count the rings in the cookies or under my eyes.
