  1. I’d stack em, you can store more then, obviously they wont be symmetrical in shape so your always going to have gaps for air to get through. Heaping them up will be fine, and is going to give more air flow obviously, but you’ll lose a fair bit of possible stacking room... up to you though. If your using a farm building then i’d also look at putting some sort of mesh round everything to keep rats out! Nowt worse than routing through your wood piles and being covered in rat shat and piss!!!
  2. Yeah thats last years pic, they’ve done nowt this year?!! Never made any size and dropped very early! Shes still only young though yet, and quite a few people have said to me dont worry about it, you’ll get a bad year every now and then?!! I’m still learning with it all yet. Will be replacing the 6ft fence panels and posts right round garden next year, so when log stores are gone they’ll be replaced with some block built and rendered raised beds. Will then drop my apple tree, acer and cotton easter in and hopefully they should all thrive again with being away from the big pots. 🤷‍♂️ time will tell.
  3. I’d leave it alone, you’ve no need to rush on your milling jobs. You put your engine in your tranny yet?
  4. Mine have been outside for nearly 2 yrs now in a pallet store arrangement like your suggesting, but i’ve got rubberised corrugated sheets for roofs, its all beech and it was dry enough/i was burning it in yr one, you should have more than enough air flow around your stacks by building how you are suggesting, it’ll all depend how much air flows through the building to dictate your drying time thats all.
  5. Shared with a lad at work who does some flower growing/showing up and down country, lot of involvement with allotments and gardeners, thanks Steve! [emoji106]
  6. Yeah! Hes a twunt! [emoji16]

    Had to go the Doctors this morning. Had to strip off, the Doc immediately mentioned the fact that my genitalia was perfectly shaped like a saxophone [emoji449]. I explained it was a family trait and we all had genitalia shaped like musical instruments.He was amazed and said "Well in 25 years as a GP I've never seen nothing like it,having said that I do remember a woman coming in a few years ago and her vagina was shaped like a mouth organ" I said, "That'll be our Monica"
  8. Try to identify your initial cause, last thing you want to do is rebuild and relive at a cost again.
  9. Good all persons are ok! And great to see people pulling together when times get tough with offers of lends and help. Hope your back to full speed soon [emoji106]

    SEX AFTER DEATH A couple made a deal that whoever died first would come back and inform the other if there is sex after death. Their biggest fear was that there was no afterlife at all. After a long life together, the husband was the first to die. True to his word, he made the first contact: ... "Marion...Marion..." "Is that you, Bob?" "Yes, I've come back like we agreed." "That's wonderful! What's it like?" "Well, I get up in the morning, I have sex. I have breakfast and then it's off to the golf course. I have sex again, bathe in the warm sun and then have sex a couple of more times. Then I have lunch (you'd be proud - lots of greens). Another romp around the golf course, then pretty much have sex the rest of the afternoon. After supper, it's back to golf course again. Then it's more sex until late at night. I catch some much needed sleep and then the next day it starts all over again" "Oh, Bob are you in Heaven?" "No...I'm a rabbit in Tipperary!"
