Here we use pinecones to get our fires started as well as getting it going a bit hotter when we have left it a bit too long without checking. So each week several guys come around selling big bags to help stock up our inventory. They run from 60 pesos a bag to 80 or $2.15 to $2.85 US per bag.
Right after I took this photo our guy came by and we bought two more bags of cones so our inventory is 4 full bags and 1 partial. That should take us for a few weeks when the weather turns cold again. The past several days it has been up into the high 60’s even got up into the low 70’s so we have not had a fire going.
