I am so sick and tired of burning crap because we’ve had pile after pile after pile of rotted wood to dispose of. Two weeks ago I burned what was there and decided that was it. Everything from now on is going to the dump. I was sick of looking at the burn pile. I was sick of dealing with the burn pile. I was sick of having to have a burn pile!!
Now the burn pile has been scooped up into countless garbage bags full of ashes. And when I say countless, yes, I lost count. We burned a lot of crap! Siding, fencing, framing…all rotted, all only good for burning or dumping.
So we cleaned up all the ashes and used a magnet to get (I hope!) all of the nails and now my goal is a fire pit to sit around. Here’s where we’re at with it so far. And so far only the turkeys are getting any use out of it. Soon, though! Soon I’ll get some gravel in there and some seating. Then no more burn pile with all the smoke and stress and sweat involved. Now, sitting on our butts around a fire pit.
Progress at the farm. 🙂
