as promised

I finally secured the gizmo I needed to transfer pics from my camera card to my computer.  So here is the photo update I promised last post.

Image

Stacks of trees await their slow bump and grind to the log dump.  This is in the second of three areas of our property being harvesting, for a total of ten or so acres.

 

Image

The big diggie poised (and posed) to stack.

 

Image

What stays behind.  Jay, our friend/neighbour who runs the diggie, is stacking the unmarketable trees near the road so we can cut them up for firewood.  He’s putting the branches in huge burn piles which we will blaze up this fall.

 

Image

Our house through the “picket fence”, which we requested to keep the front of the forest intact for aesthetics.  This is the thinnest part of the fence.  Jude and I have been quite pleased with the general look.

Jude (in orange) and Slinkee (in background) show our friends Judith and Ted and their dog Pal our new bridge.

Saxon Creek.

 

Image

Jude posting a sign to ward off evil firewood scavengers.

 

Image

Ollie inspects the sign.  Please don’t tell any evil firewood scavengers, but we’re bluffing about the cameras.  I initially objected to doing this because I believe that there’s far too much duplicity in the air today, but Jude assured me that I was wrong.

 

Image

The not-nearly-done mudroom formerly known as the front porch.  It got a solid initiation one recent rainy day when 16 geology students and three faculty members visited for a pasta feed.

 

Image

I think this qualifies as our beta testing.
