Elah Elf Diary 2022

Roger felled an Ash tree in the bottum left side of the triangle field a couple of weeks ago however it did not fall all the way down, it landed in some trees rather precariousley. Roger cut some big bits off the bottum last week and today he was climbing up the tree and cutting branches off in order to be able to get it to fall to ground at some point. I spent my time today clearing, trimming and stacking the branches (that Roger cut off) to dry for firewood. There was also a branch or two of Blackthurn? It has a orange/red tinge when cut and apperently makes nice buttons and stuff. I have tried shaping a piece into a knife at one end and spoon at the other, it is very rough at the moment but I intend to fashion it some more.

Wet for several days, found one of the concreat blocks in the triangle field the other day which I thought might make a good base or area for a shed/workshop/cider press.
There are apparently 3 concreat blocks that were used years ago for shed bases. Roger managed to find a map with the blocks/sheds maked on them. The concreat blocks are in the center of the image and there are 3 of them.
We have now found anouther one near by. I would like to clear arround them and make a plan for growing areas and make some mulch out of reeds for growing beds for next year.
It has been a bit wet this week so have spent quite a lot of time with Roger testing out a Tequeela rum mix for Michal's birthday and talking about, well just about everything! Also last night we did a Tarrot reading looking at all my significant relationships and there connections /pathways.
My plan is to decide where to grow things and plant trees this year and lay down some mulch that can supress the weeds so I can grow stuff next year. Not sure how much planning to do??

There was a bit of a storm last week and in the morning I heard quite a laud cracking noise, I thought a tree might be falling on the van so I looked out the window.
Although the trees were blowing quite a lot in the wind, none appeared to be falling and shortley after the wind died down.
When Roger appeared later I told him of the noise and he looked down the track and low there was a largish branch lying accross the track.
Roger whent to get his chain saw and I went to get my overalls and gloves on. Roger cut down the remaing branches and we cleared the track.
