Checking out the splitter

This week, I got to show off the wood splitter  to my stepdad, Bill, as we worked on getting enough firewood for boiling maple sap in the spring.  It’s a super cool, hydraulic splitter that works off the tractor.  The best part is that it splits both ways, speeding up the whole operation.  I knew this would be one of Bill’s new favorite things and I am RIGHT!  There’s still a bit more to split, but we’ll end up with about two cords from two white pine blow downs.  I’m also working on harvesting another 2-3 cords for winter heating at home.
