We brought in a little more than 1/3 of a cord of well-dried wood today. We still have a good two and a half cords under cover in the back yard, which should get us through the Winter. The trees that came down this year and that we’re still bucking will make for good dry wood next year.
We also scavenged three boxes of kindling from our property (thanks, Irene!). Â Good (small anddry) kindling, I find, is worth as much as the firewood itself for getting a good fire going.Â Amie helped a lot with that so she wanted to pose with her handiwork.
Hanging above her is the drying sage.
We’ve still only had one night of frost here. Today was another rather balmy day. The tomatoes and peppers in the hoop house (still doorless) keep on growing and ripening.
