BONFIRE SEASON HAS BEGUN

We’re legally required to clear dead wood from within 100 feet of freestanding structures, as it’s a natural fire hazard. We can do that easily in the autumn (that is, after November 1) when we’re allowed to resume having fires in the open. Tonight Stephanie and I burned creosote limbs — very dead, very dry, mildly aromatic — around sunset by the shack for our first bonfire of the season.

    Dried citrus peels make great (aromatic) kindling. Enjoy!
