Well, it's been three years since the last time we set fire to our burn pile. Three years of accumulating waste wood. Three years of taking up a bigger and taller spot in our side yard. Time to get rid of it!
It was a misty damp day, a good day for burning.
Almost too damp. I always have a hard time getting a burn pile started, so this time we used both old motor oil and kerosene. It worked.
Lots of smoke from damp rotten hay.
A good start for getting rid of all that wood.
Starting to make a nice bed of coals.
Younger Daughter and her friend Miss Calamity decided to roast some hotdogs for dinner.
We started this burn pile on Sunday and now, on Tuesday, it's still burning, slowly working its way through piles of damp sawdust that have accumulated. Let it burn!
