Wood Pile Finale

Ken and I finished stacking our firewood Sunday morning. He stacked logs under the garage window while I continued stacking on the north side. The only thing left to do is to clean up the bark and small scraps in the driveway where the wood was dumped last week.

Where the logs were.

I made two rows on the north side, which has me puzzled. In the past it's been three rows. Even taking into account the stack that Ken made, it seems to me that we should have more wood. Maybe we got gypped? I don't know, but there's nothing we can do about it at this point. The wood is paid for and it didn't really cost very much (in the grand scheme of things). I'm sure we'll have enough logs for the season unless something strange happens with the weather. Knock on... um... wood.

Two rows stacked with some kindling sprinkled on top.

But anyway, the chore is done. Now it's time to think about cutting the grass again. But first, I have to pick up all the apples that have fallen from the trees. There's never a lack of yard work, eh?

Ken's stack next to the garage. That spot had to be cleaned out. We'll replant it with something next spring.


  1. Lovely stacking! We need to replenish our wood store here in the UK, given the cost of gas and electricity is eye watering this winter.

  2. Good job, you two!

  3. Did the wood delivery come in a similar-size truck as the previous one? Around here, that is how the wood is described with the price: 1/2 ton pick-up truck of 1/2 cord of wood for "x" dollars.

  4. sam, don't even talk about heating oil!

    judy, it's a lot easier now that someone else is sawing the wood.

    bettyann, :)

    mitch, in very small quantities.

    anon, they seemed to have a new truck.

    chm, ha!


Tell me what you think!
