Now we need Col's brother to bring the log splitter over to split the big bits of Ash on the left of the shed and the large chunks of a dead Walnut on the right of the picture which next-door-but-one neighbour brought round last weekend. He also brought some more wood pallets
and some chunks left over from his work as a landscape gardener. The pallets are leaning up against the workshop to dry out as they had been laying out in all that rain over Easter. Colin is splitting the chunks with an axe.
At the back of the huge heap above is willow and poplar for the following winter.
Getting wood stored for winter is very reassuring.
