Today turned out to be the perfect day to burn… Little wind and comfortable temps. The gigantic pile of fallen branches, chain-sawed tree pieces, and remanants of the ice storm was quite impressive over on the gravel parking lot. Although difficult to get started, once it started burning, oh baby, it burned hot all day. Frank was surprised that the whole pile went, PLUS a bunch of the downed Sycamore trees from our yard, PLUS a few truckloads from the trees down over by the pavilion, PLUS some of my Dad’s bigger pieces brought over in the truck. All up in smoke!
With such a hot fire, we decided to wrap a few sweet potatoes up in tin foil and throw them in — only 15-20 minutes later, they were cooked! That, with some talapia and veggies — and dinner was done!
