Autumn Chores

Autumn seems to be the time of year to burn brush piles that need to be taken care of. I'ts cool and the crispness of the weather seems to smell so good add some woodsmoke and it is like digging in the garden in the spring...earthy, primal, instinctive.

So we've been burning some piles in the pasture where our barn is at since hubby cut some trees down and we let the does eat the leaves off of them. The trunks I want to cut up for logs but the branches are burning nice since they are dry.

We have one goat who loves the smoke, Silk's previous owners smoked and they said she loved cigarette smoke. Well I think she loves any kind of smoke.

  1. Looks like it is busy time there for you! The cooler weather has come here and we are now getting snow and coldish weather. I love it though!
