It is a bright sunny day and you have your recipe, ingredients and solar oven all ready to make a great meal. The wonderful thing about solar cooking, is that it resembles using a slow cooker/crock pot. It is, in many ways, a “set it and forget it” experience.
So, that allows the solar chef to pursue a few other tasks and interests while the solar cooker prepares the meal. Many may seek to do some inside jobs. Others, like many solar chefs that observe a green lifestyle, may catch up on yard work. That might mean feeding and tumbling their backyard composter. Also, with as much rain as some parts of the country has had lately, it might present the rain barrel owner to empty/maintain it. Like using a solar oven, using a rain barrel is just another way to do your part for water conservation, or, not trying to be trite, help save the planet!
Give it some thought. It is so easy, with the green products available to us these days, like the solar oven and the rain barrel, to really do something environmentally friendly, with so little effort. Here is the GoSun Solar Stove making blueberry muffins while the presenter visits and reads. Just as easily, she could have been watering the flowers from the stored-up water from the rain barrel, right?
