A local tree trimmer, and friend of ours, brought over some dry eucalyptus (a non native tree) firewood on Friday so we can crank up the new wood stove soon. In lieu of payment we bartered a few homemade preserves and item from the Peddler’s Wagon. Not a bad trade, especially when a cord of wood around these parts cost upwards of $250.

    Hi folks! Happy to hear you’ve got some carbon neutral heat! But you know that you should let wood age and dry out for a while, right? That’s really important, otherwise it doesn’t burn as well, gives off too much creosote and can cause a chimney fire.
