I haven't burned in two weeks, I've got the tomatoes in the garden, and I've already been mowing for a month. So, I figured it was time to close things down for the season. Got all the ashes cleaned out of the stove and vacuumed the firebox. Cleaned the glass up like brand spanking new, ready for the next burn season. I really enjoyed getting to know my new Jotul F 600 stove that I installed this past February. I got to do some burning in a few cold snaps, but no long sub-freezing spells. I'll still have something new to look forward to next winter. From what I've seen out of this stove so far I know my wife and I should experience our warmest winter since we've been in this house the past ten years.
