Burning Olive Wood
For years a big piece of olive wood has been lying about in our shed. I tried to put it in our woodburner but it was too big. Last week while sawing some wood I decided to point the chainsaw in the direction of formentioned piece and cut a piece of it. Being dry and olive wood, this was no mean feat.
Big pieces of wood are a joy since you won’t have to feed the burner for hours to come, so in goes the olive wood. After a while a thick, dare I say, fat smell started to emerge from the stufa. The smell of olives! Not surprising but a nice reward for the tough sawing job.
