Ow. But Fire accomplished.

The house came with, among a lot of other stuff, some corrugated cement board and a chair with no bottom. It also came with a lot of mess in the hedgerow that needed to be pulled out and dealt with.

The last bit led to a pile of brush larger than a truck.

Cutting it to pieces was only so effective.

Running it through a woodchipper (Small, electric), did some good, but it was slow and loud.

So we bought a firepit.

Enter the corrugated cement board – safe place to put it – and the chair – place to sit and tend it. Add the seat from an otherwise trashed office chair, one concrete block, also from the house, and a laptop.

My butt has one long scrap-bruise, but the laptop is safe.

In other news, sitting outside writing/reading whilst watching the fire burn is lovely.

  1. Mmmmm, fiiiiire! Bonus points for things to cook over it. 🙂 (I wonder if one can bake apples in the embers like potatoes?)

    • If I’m ever doing the fire at a time other than “it’s nearly dark and it’s cold can I go inside yet?” I’ll let you know!

      • For oven-baked apples, one can core them and stuff them with raisins and nuts and sugar and spices for extra wow. Maybe not the first time in the fire, though.
