Below is a picture of what turned out to be accidental flame cap tree branch char.....
The fire pit is 3 feet across, 20 inches deep and lined by brick and rock.....
We did some extensive pruning of trees on Monday. I spent about 3 hours Tuesday morning burning all of the tree trimmings in the fire pit. When I was done I burning I decided to quench the fire with water rather then let the fire burn down to ash.
By water quenching the fire, I was rewarded with a 10 inch deep pile of charred pieces of tree trimmings 3 feet across.
Today I dug the charred pieces out of the pit and I broadcasted lightly these pieces evenly over the top of the garden beds that will planted out in 30 days. Using a shovel, I turned over the soil in the beds which brought the char pieces into the soil horizon....
Now I need to remember what I did accidentally to make this pit char.on purpose next time......
