A walk in the woods…

Category: Barn Conversion Journal February 1st, 2011 by mbc

TRF and I went for a walk in the woods on Sunday. It’s been a while since I’ve been there, except to dump ashes from the fire.

TRF told me that the brambles have been placed there by dragons – must be to keep us away…

There is plenty of growth in the hedgerow that needs to be removed to allow light in and for me to start to replenish my dwindling stock of firewood. That gives me a job to look forward to at the weekend, if I can get my chainsaw started. A job to get done before the tree sap starts rising and spring arrives. It would be nice to feel some warm from the ground again.

The ash logs that I get from my little patch of woodland need to be split to season properly – the unsplit logs that I cut last winter, despite residing in a nice warm metal clad shed all summer have sizzled as they’ve burnt…

There are one or two large branches that have fallen over the winter – a bounty of wood that doesn’t need to be cut!

Pointing (is rude?)
I’m going on a course tomorrow to learn the basics of using lime, with a view to working on the pointing of the stonework at the barn myself.

Tree Planting – Winter 2010
I bought 60 hazel and 60 silver birch trees just after the new year started.

Bowsaw
I get laughed at when I insist on using a bowsaw from time-to-time instead of a chainsaw.
