Episode 96: Off-Grid Mentality Can Improve Your Homestead with Shawn Mills

Today, we have a special guest in the house: Shawn Mills. Remember way back when almost a year and a half ago when I had someone come look at my home to help me understand better what it might take to go off grid? Well, that was Shawn. Today we are going to talk about his off-grid lifestyle, as well as focus on things all of us can do to move that direction without committing to a 10k solar panel installation.

    It’s a tomato cone! I inherited one from a friend who’s 98 year old mother passed away. Linda knew that I was into food preservation and passed all of Maggie’s stuff on to me. I got it while I was in the process of packing up and moving onto this homestead. I walk past it on the shelf in the conex and think, “wow, that’s so cool maybe I’ll research it next week”. Thanks for solving that riddle for me!
