Tiny Homestead, Level II

Some research, some cash cows while things are semi normal producing food in abundance to sell without a store front then to eat when it all goes south – all run by solar of course. Building solar panels for resale which can be shipped or delivered if close. Huge demand for them at this point.

Why the east coast is a bad idea

Charcoal stove

I wonder whether there is a charcoal maker that allows you to feed a log into it, make charcoal from the end and then feed it in some more, etc., so you don’t have to cut wood into stove length and chop it.
