This is our Oak. The darker half (on the right) is what has just been delivered.
As opposed to our usual Oak, this is Red Oak. It was planted in rows, then thinned; ours are the first thinnings that were cut about 4 years ago. I'm told it burns even better than the other non-planted wild Oak. We'll see.
And this is our Chestnut. I think you can see where yesterday's delivery starts. It was sawn and split just before delivery.
I always feel happy when our wood stocks are newly replenished. We should have enough for about two years or more. In all we have about 12 Cubic Metres of good dry wood.
All that remains now is to saw it into thirds, fill the wheelbarrow, and stuff it into the burner; but not for a while yet.
I do hope we don't have too cold a winter; I really don't like the cold. I'm a sunshine boy!
