Over 48 hours with no fire, and yet it’s 56º in the kitchen. In fact today the house actually got warmer (5º) all by itself , which I think hasn’t happened since late October. The snow is almost (not quite) gone, and the muck and grime begins.
I had this idea the other day about a sort of kotatsu that would be build around a big worm composter bin. Not that we really produce enough veggie scraps to actually heat the house, no matter what way they are decomposed.
