Did my annual or bi-annual pit/brush fire yesterday. A cool day. I had a nice North east wind that kept the fire going and  me warm at the other end. Burned most of the brush Lu and I cut last week from winter damage and 4 burnished stoneware pots. Not a very large fire but it's still hot. Pots were crusted with ash salt and metals from the firing. Careful scraping, cleaning and a final wax shows more subtle, earthy pots this year. Have a great day!

Cranberry nut rye bread from the kitchen bread pot.. Yum!
Photo: New Cranberry rye bread for Easter dinner.. Yum!. This one barely fit in the pot. Got to get some larger pieces fired..
