Home fires are burning

The Haddock wood burner

As the weather here in Marburg has become cooler, we have fired up the wood burner for the past couple of evenings. This is the one thing I like about the evenings drawing in - to light a fire and watch it. It's better than TV most of the time. Unfortunately over the summer months I didn't quite get round to chopping up the wood for the winter months, so over the next few days I will be wielding the axe and chainsaw in an effort to have a plentiful supply of wood for the next few months

I picked more tomatoes and strawberries from the garden today. There are still chilli's, bell peppers, and zucchini on the plants, and the weather is predicted to get a bit better for a few days. Hopefully this will force the zucchini on a bit quicker. Amazingly the strawberry plants are still in flower.

The house behind us is currently having PV Solar Panels fitted to the roof. This is something I would really like to have, but considering the costs involved and the other priority projects that we have earmarked, this will have to wait for a few years.
