Hey all! While I know this isn’t quite a garden question. It will at some point impact where I put a raised bed garden or two so I’m looking for any input :) I’ve got almost a half cored of well season wood that needs relocated. It is currently on a side of my garage that gets about no sun, but I fairly sheltered in the winter. Maybe too well since it stays wet longer than I’d like. Any who I wanted to see everyone’s preference as to where the firewood stack is in relation to sun/shade and possibly the garden since I know they both have their own kind of bugs. Thanks!

If its well seasoned,then you are not waiting for it to dry,already done.The trick is to keep it dry.I had mine on the south side of the shed.Always had 10 cord stacked in the Fall,well dried and covered with tarps,and always on skids to keep it off the ground.

coolio! I picked up some rack ends at Lowes so I could just move the stack from where it’s at onto this rack – this at least has sides. It didn’t get stacked very well the first time – I didn’t have anybody to show me the proper way to really stack it. I’m also going to sort the stack since it seems there is a lot of small kindling size pieces. Not sure how I’m going to store those though. Guess I better figure a firewood leanto into my new shed project!

I simply dump the wood in the storage shed. Even though it does not have a climate control feature, I think it would do just fine to keep the wood dry enough when I need them later on. I ensure they are placed near the window or door so that they could at least absorb some heat to let the moisture evaporate faster even though not that quickly. I guess it will be fine as long as you do not leave them out in the open to continuously absorb water.
