Wire size for generator
The #10 gauge wires will work perfectly well for 30 amps at 50 feet.
You might choose to put in 8 or even 6 gauge wires in case you might use a larger generator in the future. For those sizes the ground wire can still be #10.
The #12 wires will be fine for the 20 amp circuit. Again, you could use heavier wires and/or 3 wires on this circuit in case you may want to use more amperes or 240 volts out at the shed
The disadvantages of crab apple trees. In summer, the apples are too sour to pick and eat. In winter the birds come and leave dropping all over the place.
