Now that the September retreat is over, back to winter prep! I don’t have a wood shed. Maybe someday. But for now, I’ve been keeping wood stored under the deck steps. I’ll also be keeping some wood on the back porch. And I keep wood inside, too–especially during times I’m using wood a lot for heat. My primary source of heat is my free natural gas. Last winter, my furnace broke TWICE and I learned my lesson. I’m stocking up much more wood than I had on hand last year, just in case. There’s still quite a bit more wood waiting to be split, and at least a couple more trees will need to come down to finish up my supply. This pile under the deck steps is just the beginning!
