It has been too long since we’ve had a house with a fireplace or property well suited for a fire-pit. But the wait has finally ended!
After some quick research on reviews and a few days of best-price hunting, we picked up a very affordable fire-pit from our local chain, Farm&Fleet.
Tip1: Be careful of the size of the bowl you are considering when researching what might work best for you. Your bargain find may have a very small burning surface which doesn’t work out well. We went with a 30 inch fire bowl and couldn’t be happier!
We are fortunate to have a cement slab “deck” area in our backyard that is perfect for safely positioning a fire-pit. Make sure you consider the placement of your pit carefully and have access to the usual fire safety tools.
TRDad spent a good amount of time discussing proper fire building with our young Bluey. TRDad also made sure that Bluey understood that you must respect your fire and use great caution while stoking or minding it. They gathered up kindling and before long, our first fire was burning bright.
Tip2: Keep the makings for S’mores tucked away in your pantry. The ingredients are super cheap and the enjoyment is guaranteed. You can even find vegetarian marshmallows at most specialty stores and coops.
A fire-pit is a great addition to a backyard. But it does require a full commitment to safety. Your home, neighbors, pets, and children are very susceptible to injury from an unattended fire. But with the properattention and tools, you’ll enjoy it for years to come!!
