Wet Bonfire

We were wanting the have a small bonfire the other evening. The family was home for the weekend to celebrate a birthday. Guv'nor had been collecting up smaller branches which would burn easily and quickly so that we wouldn't have a huge bonfire that lingered for days or set the woods on fire. (Read about the other bonfires we've had here and here .)

It was a nice clear evening for a bonfire. What we didn't anticipate was that the very wet couple of weeks we've had also soaked the branches in the bonfire pile. Guv'nor started the fire using diesel-soaked empty feedbags, but we just couldn't keep it going very long. So it died out within about 30 minutes. We'll have another go in a couple of months when hopefully we've had drier weather.
