Can only burn on prescribed days at prescribed time.
That was our first and only fire so far
The weather is now finally summer hot, we have a system stalled above us which is bringing hot temps, day and nite. We have Humidex and heat stroke warnings, for the week. Temp today was 32 with a humidex of 36 C and its going to stay for a little while.
Ken would call that winter weather for his neck of the wood, but for us SkiDoo lovers, it's hot en Tabarnack!!
Inside joke for Ken
Picture a hoard of these coming over :-)
One of the two maple logs I kept
The tree stump is still oozing out sap, the whole top surface is saturated with it.
That is why normally trees are fell in the winter when the sap is dormant (at its lowest)
Rounding up the logs from around the yard
And some more
I find it very impressive that Dennis cut all that
from tree standing to this pile of logs in just a few hours.
Took me longer to assemble this pile :-)
Those two Norway maples had their bark infected with that tar spot virus.
See the black on that log
Because the sap was running when it was cut, the bark will separated from the log as it dry.
Notice the bark and the log don't evaporate the free water at the same rate, causing the bark to crack
The variety of size in my pile
Between my age, my back and the temps I am forced to work mostly early morning, before it gets too hot. And even then, I have to pace myself. I am no Spring chicken no more … apparently
The pile I have tonite.
All the tree tops and branches on my lawn have been stripped.
I'll check if I can burn tonite??
Between stops were we go on a road trip to visit friends, instead of me slaving away in my yard, its progressing good, I can see the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.
That has been occupying all my time and then we have the grand peanuts over for two weeks.
So not much progress around my shop lately, except that I am still getting it ready for the little ones.
We should play in it soon :-)
Ruby-Jean brought her puppy dog to play with Rudy
Rudy is not quite sure what to make of it.
Should I tear its ears off or just lick it??
Bob, who gets around thanks to Voltaren Emugel.
Oh, Babe, I think we need the Costco size... :-)
