A relatively straightforward day today, we were tasked with getting the two charcoal kilns filled and ready for firing sometime in the very near future.
A group of us set about sawing and chopping logs whilst another group layered up the kilns. The shady woodland and pleasant breeze helped keep us relatively cool on a gloriously sunny day, although we did break a sweat trying to split some very knotted pieces of wood!
It was a really satisfying day, and the following quote attributed to Albert Einstein sums up the task nicely:
"People love chopping wood. In this activity one immediately sees results."
