Nice work @ClintonH , it's always nice when you see the kids outside helping and it looks like you had some nice weather.I put 3 tanks of gas through the saw this weekend. Here's the stack so far. I had to bring out the big guns (5 y/o and 3 y/o boys) yesterday--hand-me-down coat from the big sister is looking good. They did great--cleaned up branches, bark, vines, etc. and put on a burn pile for later disposal. they both drove the little Kubota a bit too (the 3 y/o needs some practice). 23-24 or 24-25 wood. I'll split it all this spring of 22 once we shut down the stove for the year (i.e., we're fuller than we've ever been with logs to spare). Pallets reach 35', will be stacked in rounds 2 deep. Hopyard is in the background--sleeping for the off-season.

Plan for the day: Final yard cleaning, drain the gas out of the mower, christmas lights going up, topping off the garage wood rack & prepping the tractor for winter snow, putting on the rear grader blade and front snow pusher, oiling the tire chains and moving the buckets from the shed to the garage incase I need them. I'm expecting snow mid-week and want to be ready. If there's time I will burn off the firepit.
We have White Pine up here. Hopefully I'm back out there getting a few more dead White Pine on the ground tomorrow, split some and burn it up after we put in more wood.To be honest, I don't know. I can post a pic of the splits this weekend.
This next little warmup, I plan on finishing the last stack of the six face cord. I didn't stack a full six for this year (just getting sick of pine) so the five face we had we burned, we usually save two face for the spring but not this year.And you have too much pine to split and stack it? (Though this year you ran out of pine...?)
I have a year scheduled (23-24) where I have only red oak and a bit of black locust. I like to have some pine too, for starting fires.
