Our supply of firewood keeps on growing as we gradually chop the branches gathered during the summer from which the goats ate the leaves. A large pile of branches is still waiting but as you can see, the chopped wood pile (we have more piles than is shown above!) is large and attracting the goats. They eat the bark but also manage to scatter the wood all over the place. The wood needs to dry for 2 years. We are starting to run out of storage space. The sooner we get our fossil-fuel-powered gas heating system at home replaced with a wood-fired system, the better.
