First egg! The chickens can now begin to pay their way.

Red Cedar Wood

Kind donation from the tree surgeons working next door, a decent trunks worth of the wonderfully aromatic red cedar. I wanted to split it for next years firewood immediately just for the addictive smell, all the more sweet for having only moments ago been felled. Stunning epidermal pink circling the sap wood. I left a piece warming on the stove in the shed, the smell steaming out slowly around the room.
