    removed all t posts in the back, ones in front should be fine for this year. Started two more stacks. One against the fence is all oak and birch, other two are the 2 year seasoned hardwoods i got from that scrounge.

    Plus with the heavy rain tonight I figured I would try out my new covering material. See how well it works in a monsoon

    Looks good USMC80! What did you make that cover out of? I've been looking at doing the same thing but with fence posts on each corner of my stacks.

    You know the black silt fence used along the highways under construction? Its a overpriced version of that (much thicker and made of a foam and fabric). I just happened to land a roll (500ft) for free.

    Do not remember to be honest. It's a product that was just too expensive to catch on

    We got A LOT of rain so can't complain about the results. You can see a little wetness near the right middle which can easily be corrected. Not worried about it TBH.

    Moved more oak and birch rounds to my new splitting station. Clearing out the front driveway to keep the old lady happy.

    All those ugly rounds once split look great stacked with your cross pieces. Your stacks look nice and secure.
