Busy day raking & mulching leaves with the lawn mower with bag .....then picking dozens of tomatoes at various stages , going to be zero tonight !  Also made a coffee can stove and gave it a test run .  I put 2 cups of cold water into a metal bowl and lit the cheap Dollar Tree fuel-in-a-can . The water began to boil in 20 minutes with 90% of the fuel remaining . ....good for some heat or heating up a can of stew or water for coffee/tea etc. It will have a test in the fish hut (maybe next week) ??  :santa:

  There are still dozens of those small egg size tomatoes on the lone plant (lunch box) which grew from a stray seed ...huge awesome plant & tasty sweet !

toms on the left are the lunch box , small in the middle are cherry and large green are beefsteak which will go into paper bag with an apple .....

Smerch you always have the best contraptions.  Looks like your stove will work well. 

What I like about this there's no propane bottles to lug around or discard or larger stove. I don't know the BTU rating , but it seems to give off some good heat ...will have to try toast next lol ! I think it will cook hot dogs , sausages ,etc.on the rack .Each can cost $1.25+ tax ...hoping to get 2 hrs per can .

This stuff (Sterno) has been around for decades ! In my younger days , about 1969...ish ....I had an old 57 Volkswagen (winter beater) I bought for $150. that had no heat ...no defrosters or gas gauge . A wood stick was used to dip into the front  gas tank under the hood !  I would use a can of Sterno gel to warm the bug up & wipe the wind shield with a rag as I drove .
