    Had a dusting of snow the last two mornings. Daytime highs in the 50s, not too bad, but the house gets cold with no fire, so I am still burning. I have LOTS of wood, so I don't mind, and the stove is a wood consumption miser. Lit a fire in October, haven't stopped since, and have used only 8.5 face cords of hard maple, bitternut hickory, beech, and red oak @ 15-16" long pieces (less than 3 full cords). As soon as it warms up a little, the black flies will be out in force. And the trout will be biting. :)

    Are you saying he is trying to attract deer and turkey with turnip that he is planting? Pretty clever if this works!

    Today is the first day I didn't make a fire. I burn 3 loads in the winter. I've been burning one good load and I always burn till mid May. My latest fire ever was in June 9, 2011 and I've burned 1/3 cord of good wood of next years pile.

    The topic of still burning is no longer part of the thread; time to close things down.
