In the photo above there are four empty stakes and about a third of a row on stake 5. That is the amount of firewood burned to date and we have roughly 9 cords remaining for the rest of the winter. This is when we enjoy all that effort throughout the summer when we cut, split and stack the firewood for the cold season. When we are done with the cold season and no longer need to have a fire in the wood stove we will have burned all that is in the photo and much of what is in the wood shed.
Nice to sit back and see all that earlier work and watch the snow fall outside, confident we have enough firewood for the winter. It is nice and comfortable in the house as I write this and that is the new log splitter covered with a tarp in the background just waiting for next summer.
