I used to call my garage my ‘three car mud room’, and this time of year the garage is more like a mud room than a garage at all. The third bay has never been used as car space. It houses the big freezers, extra storage space and had been the area used for the butcher table until we took over the square footage with bundles of firewood and kindling last year.
The garage has become more of a multi-use area. Instead of parking my car in the garage, the pickup gets preferential treatment so the bed is dry when we want to load and tarp the firewood orders. Even the pickup got ousted from the garage this week because we needed the space to finish drying off firewood so that we don’t run out of product in the upcoming month before the weather turns a little drier. Since I am away from the farm this coming week, the garage option was the perfect solution to all the rain-soaked but seasoned wood.
The barn has been busy across the river with splitting firewood and kindling. The split wood was then stacked neatly into cribs. The cribs were moved one by one across the river and county road and placed in the garage with dehumidifiers and fans running to finish drying the soggy outsides of the cured wood.
After all the hustle as a family unit, we were able to get over two and a half cord of wood nestled into cribs settled into the garage. I can already see what is ahead for me when I return to the farm at the end of the week. I anyone tries to find me, I will be out in the bull barn bundling at full speed.
