Today I finished chopping all the rimu - well, apart from a few gnarly pieces that will have to wait until I've got more muscles. It's great to have that job out of the way and the chopped wood can weather outside until I've dug out under the garage. I've also filled all the tyres in the second row although I'll have to go back and see if I can stuff more dirt into the tyres once the moisture has drained away.
|Friday morning: digging out for the second layer|
|Friday afternoon: second row in place|
|Friday afternoon: tyre wall from western end|
|Friday afternoon: tyre wall from eastern end|
|Saturday afternoon: all tyres filled|
|Saturday afternoon: rimu woodpile - all done!|
A very nice drop and similar to the Bock I used to homebrew - it went down a treat after a hard day's work!
Not much time for sightseeing today but I did notice this lovely orb-web glinting in the late afternoon sunshine.
