    Has anybody considered bamboo as a quick growing firewood??? I've been considering it. We've got an acre of land and rather than pay for firewood ($80 to $100 a truckload) I thought perhaps this might be a better replacement. Especially since it grows so fast. We can go through a couple of...

    We have a wood burning fireplace in the new house. I've never had one before. I'm wondering how much it would save us to buy firewood vs cranking up the heat.

We also buy packaged logs from Home Depot because when I'm home alone these are what I prefer to burn, as they're lighter to carry and less messy than real wood. We keep a few logs...

    I am worried that we would need to grill something if our electricity went out. Charcoal seems to go so quickly for us, and we don't have a propane grill. Should I buy a few cords of firewood, just in case? The other consideration I have is, I don't want to be providing homes for spiders and...
