Peeling trees is my new zen place. Oh the bless of bark effortlessly falling in piles at my feet. I am building a modified junk pole fence.  The first 12 foot junk pole section was framed with bark on. The ease of constructing the frame has inspired us to build another 120' of fence.  Trees that had fallen during the snowstorm of 2019 were limbed, silly me I only took 2 pictures of limbing and not 4 as required, oh well there are more.  The trees were cut into 11' sections so to cover the BB I barked 4 of the 11' sections and put them up to dry. In their next life they will be fence posts.  If I need to show more done I have 14 to go.

Staff note (Steve Thorn):

I certify this BB is complete!

What's that smell? I think this tiny ad may have stepped in something.
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
