Hey Jenna--I'm working on a story for Cowboys and Indians that mentions your blog as a resource and I have a quick question for you: What job did you quit to start what you're doing now? Please feel free to email me a response at your earliest convenience: jaimenetzer at gmail dot com

We're free this weekend if you need help stacking.

It'll look even better when the snow's falling.

We are in the splitting and stacking phase ourselves.
(Hey, Cath, come out to California and help me stack wood! I'll feed you wild pig kielbasa!!)

Ah yes, there is a pile like that waiting for me at my folks place. Since I no longer have a woodstove, I volunteer to stack with my Dad...because I'm the good child! :-) Have as much fun as you can stacking!

I need to know a little more on your Nectre stove. I just had mine delivered a week ago. I've gotten all the pipe and am waiting on the installer. Question is just how long will a reasonably fully stoked stove last if you don't add throughout the day/night. Do you have to ensure the chimney is hot to draw proper?

Isn't that just the best feeling? Down here in NZ, we get our wood in & stacked for winter around Christmas so it has all summer to dry out a bit more before winter hits. Every time I look at the woodshed when I hang out my washing, I get a satisfied feeling verging on smugness...ah, simple pleasures!

I'm waiting for a delivery of 1 1/2 cords myself. This will be our 3rd year with a woodstove in our living room, and it has changed our lives. I find that I love working with wood: I love splitting it, I love stacking it, and I love burning it. It's also made a difference for my partner Carla, who used to have bouts of pretty bad seasonal affective disorder in winter.

We have 5 or 6 cords of mixed alder, myrtle and maple in our shed harvested from our 5 acres. Got it all stacked and drying in July. We only use about 3 cords but it feels better to be a step ahead of the weather.

Between stacking wood and canning tomatoes.... Still! I just wanted to drop a note and say thanks for rock'n my world about publishing at the Mother Earth News Fair last weekend. All the balls are in the air and we keep juggling! Thanks :)
