Half my winter wood supply is nice dry seasoned wood, the other half is not so dry. Am I better off mixing the dry and not-so-dry from the get-go, or using up the dry first and then starting in mid-winter on the greener stuff, expecting it to be a whole lot dryer by then? I'm in northern New England, where winter air is dry, dry, dry, and my stacks sit out in full sun and wind, with plenty of room in between. My wood dries pretty rapidly out there, I'd swear faster than it does in summer, but I haven't done serious measuring with my moisture meter to confirm that absolutely. I have a very small Hearthstone Tribute stove, and only used about two cords total last winter. I have about a cord left over from last year, but serious unexpected financial setbacks meant I couldn't get the additional cord I need for winter until just recently. I have no wood lot, so have to buy my wood c/s/d from local guys. What would you do? Mix the really dry with the not dry from the get-go this winter, or use up most of the dry until it's gone to give the other stuff as much time as possible to season? I haven't seen the new stuff yet, but the supplier tells me it's been sitting in sun and air in unsplit six-foot lengths since last winter. He calls it "seasoned," but I know better. At least it hasn't been lying in the woods. He is going to split it down well for me, and I will split it further before stacking it to speed seasoning. My instinct is to mix it with the dry stuff from the beginning, but I'd welcome thoughts from more experienced folks here.
