Had lows of single digits the other night and had some odd shaped pieces of mahogany so I threw them in 2 decent size pieces 2 branch’s, woke up to stove top of 400 still..eager to see if I stuff it full!
Still working through hemlock. Slowly starting to see the hard maple row in the wood shed. It’s 26 out there today and the hemlock is doing surprisingly ok. The stove at the lake (BK) gets fed anything pretty much, cedar, hemlock, basswood, white birch....that thing is not fussy.
NOAA has us heading to a low of 8 tonight, it's 11.5 at 10:18. The Liberty has cherry,maple and three nice size splits of yellow birch going with the pellet stove going in the other corner of the basement.
Oddly enough, I’ve been burning loads of willow due to the mild temps for daytime burns. Oak loads at night tho. I had big reservations about the willow, but it’s been doing the job. Don’t get me wrong, it’s super light and I have to reload about every 2-3 hours, but it’s crap wood I need to burn. Been drying for a few years now so it doesn’t have much life left to it. It’s not been as bad as I thought tho. And it’s letting me save my harder stuff for Jan-March.
