Back in the woods clearing up after the coppicing weekend. Martin had really worked hard felling trees and us workers have got a bit of catch up to do. My chainsaw broke down for the second time since purchase and is apparently a write off. I hope to convince STIHL that they had already repaired the same fault once under warranty and that they owe me a replacement- as ever Myrddin Garden Machinery in Carmarthen have been stars.
Lucy, Alfie and me went down today to do some graft. We stacked the ash and willow logs and also piled up some longer timbers for use other than firewood. Alfie worked his socks off and still found time to bounce on the trampoline. Also working to create some woodland paths around our beautiful woodland. Lots to do!
I found time to walk up the top of the hill with Alfie to look at the fencing where the bullocks broke in to our gardens. Thankfully Mr Williams has put new posts in the ground and reattached the old fencing. We may need to add a bit more fencing from our side to be sure it contains the beasts.
