I received a repeat order this week from a customer who said that he was extremely happy with his first load but asked would the next one be all hardwood as his last load contained some softwood which burnt to fast. I said that it should not have contained any softwood but maybe the odd log could have slipped through (may contain nuts). It turns out that he was referring to the odd piece of poplar and lime. Anyone else had the same?

I processed 10 cube of lime this year, its a weird wood no doubt about it! Once dry it catches and burns like a good un, quite like softwood.

 

The way it split and acted when worked reminded me of Balsa wood, which is a hardwood, just really light weight/soft.

Lime burns just like ash in my opinion.
