Yesterday was the first EVER Wells Farmer’s Market in Wells. We nearly sold out of our bread – over 80 loaves sold! – and there were jams, pickles, preserves, pancakes with huckleberry compote, coffee, garlic scapes, mini rhubarb cakes, smoothies, lemonade and all sorts of things! There was even a lamb to feed and pet. She did a great job pruning the grass around the gazebo. It was fun and it felt good to earn some money for the first time in a little while. The townsfolk of Wells came out in good numbers to support the market. I’m sure it will grow into a great market. Next markets are July 27, August 10 and 24, and September 7 and 21. Congratulations to everyone involved in the Wells Community Association – the organizers of the market.
We have had 3 firings of the oven so far, and each time we are getting more heat of the oven. This morning the oven is still reading just over 300°F, and there hasn’t been a fire in there for nearly 48 hours.
