And, at 10:30 we will be cutting into the Bread Peddler birthday cake. Stop by for a piece!

Two years ago we sold our first loaves of bread at the first ever Wells Farmer’s Market. Since then we have worked quite hard at learning how to be bakers, how to sell bread, how to get some time off, how to make better bread, how to better balance life and work. Luckily, since Tim is so easy to get along with, we don’t have to learn how to work well together. We’re still learning every day. One day we’ll know EVERYTHING!

One thing that we have had right from the start is amazing support from our customers. Most everyone is interested in what we do and how we do it, and they like to eat the end result! Come to the Wells Farmer’s Market on Sunday at 10:30 and get a slice of delicious cake as a thank you from us to you.

Tim has been busy building me a cargo bike for delivering bread around Wells. He is very pleased with himself this evening because the bike is now rideable! All it needs now is a suitable cargo bin and a good paint job. And I need to learn how to ride it. The bike is based on a design called a “Long John”, and they are everywhere in places like Denmark and Holland, where bikes are the norm not the exception. Many are even longer than this one, with the cargo bin full of kids, dogs, groceries….. anything goes!

The Long John. And me, trying to figure out how to ride it.
