    Is that a cotton wood down? My friend had lots of morells come up this spring near where her cotton wood went last year.

      Shirley, that’s the chestnut that took out the powerlines and closed the road awhile back. Mmm, I love morels, but haven’t seen any for years 😦

        Morels love to grow in wood ash. Since you heat with wood, you probably have plenty.

          Sadly not much of either, I think they are more closely associated with hardwoods. We use to see them occasionally in the orchard and near the burn pile where we burned the trimmings from the fruit trees. They are delicious!

    Getting firewood envy. Plus, your starts look really good. Guess I really need a green house…

      Paula, yeah the never ending job…and we’re burning more than we thought with this chilly weather 😦

      I don’t know that a greenhouse is necessary for the starts, but it sure does my mood good on a cloudy day!

    Who is your local sawmill? Like the local farmer, I am one of the sawmills for my area. There are a couple others and we share resources to a point…..

    Most logs are not worth much in dollars and cents. The lumber is valuable but that is because someone took a log (low value) and created lumber (added value).

    It is fun to see the inside of trees and the resulting woodwork is wonderful as well. Thanks for the picture.

      Kderby, we were hoping to salvage this for paneling, but it was cracked all the way through 😦 Hence, the firewood cutting.
