I need to get the woodshed stocked, but I'm a few years to the good with respect to dry wood. This year will be my last hemlock year for some time. After that, and for the rest of time in all likelihood, my stove and MH heater will eat mostly beech. I really can't wait to get into heating season. I have piles of chicken bones in my freezer waiting to be turned into stock. Still 6 or so weeks until a spark one though and more than that until I'm really burning wood!
Still about 2.5 months away from my first burn. In the meantime, will clean the stove pipe and replace some stove gasket and I will be set.
It was 91F yesterday, and today is shaping up nearly the same. My wood stoves are still hiding behind closed fireplace doors, I haven’t seen them since June. I’ll be swimming and sailing a lot more than lighting fires, for at least another month!I'm hoping for a late start, I'm all set to go, but this summer flew by and I'm looking forward to a fun fall (mild hopefully) but inevitably we will have that one rainy weekend in October when the temps dont get out of the 40's and I will lite the beast up.
