    The first real snowfall

    Photo-upload-419395?1416586868 Yesterday we had showers of dry snow flakes which lay like white dust but this morning I woke to a white world. Not a great deal of snow, maybe an inch. So the Arctic Outflow has ended. In any case, we were only on the western edge and the lowest temperature was -7C so it was a much gentler desce...

    Seasonal weather finally

    A little wet, but comfortable to go outside with a long sleeve shirt and down vest. Apparently it's not going to last, and we'll be back in the deep freeze. The pond is still really frozen. I think in the shallow end it probably froze through (16 days I think it is below the freezing mark-- in...

    Unloaded 2014 burn number 8

    After unloading burn number 8, there were a lot of chunks that didn't char, so I won't be using the wood from the fallen tree, behind the barn, which is too wet. We crushed and sifted this load twice along with the frozen chunks from yesterday. When the chunks didn't crush the second time, we bag...

    All the bio char is bagged

    After burn #9 was loaded and lit, we finished sifting and bagging the last of the bio char that hadn't been sifted. We loaded the fine bio char in a 32 gal trash can and added a gallon of inoculant. We also added water to fill the trash can 3/4's full. The trash can is in the garage to keep it fr...

    Unloaded 2014 burn number 9

    Photo-upload-419318?1416303201 Crushed and sifted burn number 9, which charred everything and was still burning a little when I dumped it. We added a little snow to put out the hot ashes. Also sifted the coarse char in the tote again. We ended up with two bags of fine and one bag of medium. The tote is full of coarse char unde...
