We’ve been gradually amassing firewood on our side patio.
On Saturday, I was away from the farm for a few hours, and when I came home Matt was deep into splitting. In all, he spent 7 hours splitting. I put in 5 hours stacking.
By the end of the day, we had three rows of wood split–my goal for our annual firewood allotment.
Of course, by Sunday one of the rows had partially collapsed, but on the bright side I cleaned up most of the wood chips, bark and small branches that had littered the patio.
I’ve been thinking about making a little sitting area here.
We’re not really good at sitting, especially when we’re outside, but maybe that’s just because we don’t have a spot. That could be, right?
It has nothing to do with spending a whole day splitting wood or the next one picking up bark or weeding the garden or… or… or…, right?
The mosquitoes haven’t been bad this summer, so sitting outside is actually a possibility.
I love this patio makeover from Love Grows Wild. Back in the spring I uncovered some huge slabs of 6x6s that had been bolted together. I wasn’t sure what to do with them, but then I saw Liz’s chunky rustic table and was inspired.
I feel like this post has been building to a reveal of a relaxing new patio area… or at least our own rustic table.
Ha-ha. Yeah right. Projects do not happen that quickly around here.
But we still had a productive weekend. Getting that much firewood put up is a huge accomplishment.
What did you get up to this weekend?
