Holz Hausen

Earlier this month we brought firewood. We had some left over from last spring, so with another 1.5 cords our wood shed is now full.

We took some of the new wood with us last week to our camping trip to Silver Falls. The campfire was initially smoky, causing us to worry the wood from Gilbert was not seasoned as well as in past years.

We might stack a Holz Hausen beside the wood shed, to further dry a cord of wood to burn first. Or we might just put a fan in the wood shed for a few weeks.

UPDATE: False worry! The new wood from Gilbert is well-seasoned and smokes very little in our fireplace insert. It must have been the bark we used to help light the fire that was smoky.
