Last Thursday, we had the first accumulating snow in northeast Wisconsin. It just doesn’t seem like December here unless there is snow on the ground.
The raised beds of the kitchen garden are augmented with 3 inches of compost and covered with leaf mulch to help protect them from harsh winter weather.
Three inches of snow and a crisp 20-degree day made for a perfect day with the chainsaw. By the end of the afternoon, there was another stack of firewood to match this one. The round logs are stacked to dry all winter. In April, they will be split and re-stacked to further dry throughout summer. This will be part of next winter’s heat source.
The Kubota tractor is a wonderful tool (and toy!). It helps us get so much work done here at Woodhaven. I call Max, “The Jedi Tractor Pilot.”
