Where does the oven exhaust at?

I was mulling over how to raise $200,000 for this project. Here is what I think might work: ads in the beginning and end of the video. So a one to two minute ad like you would see on Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) or YouTube. Something like this episode is brought to you by______. But sell the ad time in ten seconds bits. It could help with the cost but it would take work to get it going. Another idea I had was tool tips/gardening tips. A short video about a tool or a way of doing something from the person on there plot. A good example is "Adam Savage's Favorite Tools" of YouTube.

For the avocado deviled “eggs” was pink himalayan salt used?

paul wheaton wrote:It seems that there are probably 20 staple crops that need to be grown.  In both the quarter acre and the rest of the acres.  And probably some minimal amounts of calories for those.

Tomatoes, zukes, winter squash, grain, corn, potatoes, peas, beans, cole crops, daikon, lettuce, carrots, cukes, peppers, onions, melons ...

I like this idea. I think a fun challenge would be to see which ways of growing food would equal tasty foods. Like beans in a guild with x plants equals good beans.

Would animals be a part of the million calories?

Are there any dogs around? I see a lot of pictures of cats at the bootcamp. Also, any of the boots making or want to make tempeh, sauerkraut, kimchi, miso or other ferment things?

So I have done some thinking and reading. Here is my Financial Independence scale version 1:
Earning and debt is a ratio. So if one has $100,000 in debt and earns $20,000 a year the ratio is 1:5.
Earningdebtsaving as a percent of earning
15 and upnone
11 to 51% to 5%
1-21 and lower5%-25%
2 and highernone25% and up

I am also thinking that each level as an issue, something like this:

Ratio of 1: 5 and up
Main Issue: How do I get out of debt?

Ratio of 1:1-5
Main Issue: How do I get more money and can it be done?

Ratio of 1-2:1 and lower
Main Issue: How do I strengthen my income?/ Make my money work for me?

Ratio of 2:0
Main Issue: What do I want to do today?
