This is from Burgundy a little over a week ago, but it will look a lot like this here today.
The guy who cuts the hedges came by last week to look at the apple trees I want him to prune. While he was here, I made a deal with him to cut the rest of our firewood now that my twenty-one year old chainsaw is no longer cooperating. I had already cut enough firewood to get us through two or three months, so there's no urgency. I could buy a new chainsaw. However, we're thinking of replacing the wood stove next year with one that will take larger logs that we can buy already cut to size. If we don't replace the stove, we can still try to buy pre-cut logs, they will just be more expensive. My lumber-jacking days may be coming to an end.
