    This has been a good year. Our neighbor is building a new place and had to take out some trees. He asked if we wanted them. No problem I said. It took 6 truck loads in the little Ranger, but here's the happy surprise. It's a 50/50 mix of alder and CHERRY, woohoo! All cut to stove length. There was about 2 cords total. Together with the earlier locust score, we are set for next year's wood. Now it's time to get splitting.

    I burned some cherry last year for the first time. Good stuff and nice smell! I still have some I've been saving. My wood pile is starting to look like a wine cellar. Let's see, how 'bout a nice red oak from '06? Yeah, that should go nice with a rerun of Planet Earth...

    I just scored some mulberry from the SIL; about 4 Chevys worth. I think that will be next winter's cold weather wood.

    Just scored roughly 10 cord for my dads OWB from the neighbor. We cleared a few acres next to his shop so he has more room to park trucks. Mostly ash ,apple and aspen. Less wood I have to donate (to dad) down the road and got paid to remove it.
