Thinking Ahead


When Cathy Guthrie posted the above picture on her Facebook page, offering a truckload of firewood for a hundred dollars (delivered,) we were quick to  take her up on the offer. John and Justin have been working up wood for the coming winter and, since John has a splitter set up under a canopy, this looked like a perfect way to add to the growing woodpile. 


Ideally, one would work on the wood during the cool weather of fall. Ideally, one would have a year's supply already on hand and dry, but the past few winters have consumed a lot of wood and the guys are playing catch up. It was  such good wood and such a good-sized load that we ordered another.

If any of you local folks are interested, let me know and I'll give you Cathy's number. If you're on Facebook, you can check her page HERE.

Cathy and  her minions   farm interns Veronica and Jordan were able to offload the big rounds right by the canopy. And though Cathy had to get home to take her daughter to gymnastics in Asheville (such is the schizophrenic life of an organic  farmer/mother/firewood entrepreneur,) they kindly posed for a picture - Ali Ali showed them how it's done.

It sounds like an excellent deal + such nice skilled helpers too.

Enjoyed this. Is that Bob in the picture with Veronica?

That is, indeed, Bob.

Great looking hardwood...I know you'll have some lovely warm winter days as a result of your good find.

Such nice sizes and just the right diameter. How lucky can you get?
