The BERS are coming
Yes Boys and Girls the BERS are coming. In less than a week it will be September and that means I need to start shifting gears into at least a day or two of wood cutting every week. I haven't been keeping up with my cutting this Summer at all as I have just been too busy with the bees and other projects but now I must start fitting some chainsaw time in.
Not one to procrastinate (at least now that the mold allergies are almost gone) I got out the polesaw and began trimming some trees around the place today. I have a number of very large limbs that need to come down where I hope to finally get the new fruit trees planted next Spring and I have some smaller trees that are right in the way of the projected driveway as well. These are all green of course but it is about the right time to add some green wood into my stored stack to help with over night burning this Winter. Not alot of course but some is good and the trees I have to cut are low sap varieties anyway.
After that I will drop the few dead trees I have within easy access and start my "needs to be split pile" for the monthly roll out of the log splitter.
The "Farmers Almanac" is predicting a hard Winter for us and wouldn't that just fit in with the current developing scenario?
Better safe than sorry.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
