Max trying to smash a pea.  It's really strong!


Audrey's sweet sweet caramel.


Some of our cedars.  They're worth more than most of the rest of our forest.  It's a little silly.  And I'm planning to grow a retirement crop to harvest in 30 years.  


Marmelade sneaking under a piece of equipment.  They're all turned off for the day, no worries.


A pretty nice stack of fir, pine, and larch.  They started hauling off truck loads today.  It's so hard to gauge how much is going out.  We arranged the landing so you can't see it from the house. 


The brush pile has been burning for a week.  They just keep it going.  Today it grew a ton with them taking down the huge cedars between the house and barn.  Darn heart rot.  


I think this is the pulp pile.  The cast offs.  It's pretty large too.


The new view from the side back deck where we've kept the grill.  You can see everything!


Looking from the front of the house to the back.  You can see all the way to the back fence.  I'm going to put fruit trees back in this corner.  


Wood chips on the back deck the flew up from the cuts made for the trees that were close.  


The backyard


We left some nice douglas firs around the sauna.  They have plenty of space to fill in and grow up with fire safety in mind.  


The barn!  From the house!  There are some really nice cedars left that will grow up.  


You can see the shop too!
