Gleaning from the Hedgerow
As winter temperatures drag on...and on...and on this early Spring, our wood supply is dwindling. I'd like to stretch it as far as it will go, so I started gleaning dead, dry branches from the hedgerow to throw into our outdoor wood fired boiler. Thankfully, it has been sunny some of these last few bitter cold days and this time of year the south and west facing windows receive a lot of sunlight, warming the house nicely.
Spring temperatures are slowly starting to edge in, though. Oh, to see buds on the trees again.
