Man, I am so gonna miss the ash trees.  Spent a bit of time the last two weekends cutting dead ash, and unfortunately not dead burning bush, around the processor area.  Every time I think I know about how many are left, I find MORE.  Probably half the wood will go to the processor, the other half either too far gone and into the bonfire pile or up to the farm for the boiler.  Some are covered in ivy, thats always fun too. Good news, once cut and I take out a couple stumps, I'll have another nice tractor trail around part of the property.  Kinda cold out now, got to bring in a bit more firewood to the basement rack, then tip a few more ash.  I found an old stacked granite foundation, it was hidden with all the burning bush, I'm tossing the brush in there, burn it all off, then clean the area up.

Test, and I think we have success!!! Houston, the guy with the flip phone has re-learned how to post a pic! Easy peasy

This is the beginning of my mud season log stash, so I can keep delivering even if logs don't come in. I got caught a couple times real low during that time of year, now I try and stay ahead

Test 2.0, different way to add pic.

This is the log pile I'm working from. 12' is ideal for the processor and me handling them. Sometimes I have to cut the logs to make them feed easier when its go time. My shorts pile is in the foreground. The shorts take longer to process, but I don't mind, it still makes firewood, and not much waste wood

Had a productive day and a half of getting logs moved around.  The pile from yesterday is gone!

All of that is either in my mud season stash, or two shorts piles that'll get worked up next time the processor runs.  My log brow that feeds the processor is full and my mud stash is 3/4 full.  I'll order up another load or two and that'll be a good jump start toward next season
