Got a good pile started now.
I'll wait until we lose more snow before going after more ash in this area, I felled one dead pine and one ash.
I haven't taken a lot of photos, but I felled about 20 trees this year, processed about two cords of firewood, and left the rest as logs. My tractor came home today with a stump grinder, so I blasted the stumps today. I'll have to get photos of the work so far. I think tomorrow I'm going to fell a few trees and get some more stumps taken down.
I siphoned the gas out of the snow blower and then ran the rest of the gas out of the lines and the carb, I did an oil change and spark plugs on a splitter and the push lawnmower.
It looks like things will get real wet around here, Accu is forecasting close to two inches of rain which should get rid of most of the snow.
So far this year I’ve collected about 6 cords and made a couple of trails so I can get more.
How much snow do you still have in your area. Our weather doesn't really break until Thursday, tonight we'll hit 29,Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 32 for lows.
It was melted, but we had an inch yesterday, melted today. There are still piles from my plowing around the yard. W did hit 60 a couple of times over the last 2 weeks.
Should be a high of 64 of Thursday. Lows in the 30’s this upcoming week according to the phone
That sounds nice, we need some sun so everything drys up some,
I finally made my way back on to our property that I do most of our cutting on, there are still a few areas that I'll stay out of because of the snow and a few more that are just real wet.
This widowmaker will be left for mother nature to take down, it's a Hemlock.
Picture 2355 is the pile of pine I split last fall that I'm hauling from, 2356 is the stacking area that will hold close to six face cord of pine for the shoulder season, 2357 is what's left from last years shoulder season wood that I'll move to the area that I'm stacking in, 2358 is the stacking I did today before my break.
I had plantar fasciitis last summer/fall or this would've been stacked last year, it was my first time wearing my cutting boots and so far my heel feels fine.
Man, I feel for you, PF is a groan. My mom found that running of all things helped her the most. I hope it's not genetic.
I need to take my phone with me next time I'm working, I never take photos
Last year when it started to hurt my wife wanted me to see the foot doctor but I didn't, what really brought it on was the day I spent eight hours in the garage going up and down the ladder so once I sealed the cement blocks on the outside we made the appointment.
I don't have any pain but I don't want to push it....yet.
Definitely see the podiatrist, but also check out online forums and see what other people do that works. Perhaps there's a Facebook group if not a dedicated forum.
Another big thing that will change your life is physical therapy. It sounds like a load of BS and really lame, but it works. I've not met a single person that followed the physical therapy techniques and exercises that didn't get better.
I did see the foot doctor last fall, I do have stretching exercises I do after a five minute icing and then ten minutes of heat that I'll start again tomorrow.
I did have the good ole foot doctor make me some orthodics so that should be a big help.
It's good that you listen to the doctor. I've met a lot of people that suffer with PF but refuse to listen to anyone.
When it got so bad that any pressure on my left heel was making me want to stay in bed, I made the call. I had my first cortisone shot (only one I ever had) it took care of the pain along with some pills that I took for a month made things gooder. So this year I'll limit my workload, I'll see how many hours the heel can take per day without aggravating it again.
I did get another four loads of pine stacked before I came in for lunch, the heel is feeling fine.
Nice work. I’m hoping it’s not too crappy tomorrow so I can get something cut, I’m trying to go after hardwood since next years pile is a bit pine heavy at present, still going after standing dead.
Thanks @sweedish , what types of dead standing or just types of wood does your lot hold?
There's a beaver dam near our property, looks like we're not the only ones getting ready for this winter!
Since it will be raining tomorrow, I'll make some spaghetti sauce with some braciole using pork, the pic was pulled off the web.
I think this year is going to be another good year for scoring ash. I have a large one to remove and my friends parents still have about 20 cord of trees dropped on their property that need cleaned up. I just need some time and dry weather.
They (NYS) just busted up a bunch of work the beavers did just two miles south of here, the water was getting close to the state highway.
