What do wood stoves and a Swiss man have in common….

Well?  Do you know?  They both say Woof.  Sort of.  A wood stove does if you use gas to start it (no I don’t).  A Swiss man does if he is a WOOFER.  A what?  Um, well, Take a look at this so you know what I mean, cause I don’t know if I can really explain it…  http://www.wwoofusa.org/ He’s staying with my parents, helping out for a few weeks.  My dad has most of their side covered on his site: www.theopengatefarm.com.  Helping out on Saturday meant keeping a date with a friend with wood.  We had a little ‘scouting trip’ last weekend and set up the better part of a Saturday to cut wood.  Maple.  4 years old maple.  Hard.  Maple.  Hard.  It needs a little more seasoning.  And we need to go back.  Cause there is a bit more.  Oh, and the company isn’t too bad either, or the baking.  Or the view.  Did I mention that the rounds are really hard?  And it’s tempting to put off the last of it till her farm is in full bloom.  Can you think of anything better than cutting wood on a lavender farm?  I can’t.

The tip of the iceberg.

Going over the mechanics of splitting….

Toys!

More toys!

2/3 of the great company on the lavender farm.  Who wouldn’t want to spend some time with these boys!?  (no they

are not the ones who do the baking)

Don’t forget we love comments!

Wir lieben Anmerkungen!

  1. That looks like sooo much more fun than sitting in front of a television. Even just getting out & walking in the territory would be fun. The photos capture more than men at work. If more of us did that sort of thing we wouldn’t need to go to the gym. A.A.
