Keeping Shit Around is a Grand New England Tradition

Oak saplings shoot up through the moldering lumber pile. Moss is thick on prized beams. Garter snakes nest in the loamy duff that was cherry planks.  But I can envision a few things and the hands can still do some adaptive work. But first an inventory: (2) 6X6X8’ mossy pine posts. (3) 5X5X6’ pine posts, dry rotted on one side. (2) 3X5X8’ pine studs, horribly twisted. Assorted 3X3 redwood posts from Ethan’s swing set. A couple of punky pine logs, hand-peeled, no less. My thought: an outdoor kitchen and a log bridge for Dunbar Brook, a pretty stream that flows through the yard. June 22, 2017
