Sat Aug 15, 8:30 am to 1 pm: Bread, scones, and granola for sale at the Quesnel Farmer’s Market

My bakery dream has gone wild: we are selling out of bread, scones, and pizza every time we bake! We appreciate the amazing support we are getting and the loyal following of customers we have. Tim is like the Energizer bunny, but I don’t think I am cut out for so many hours of work each week: the summer is disappearing fast, and there haven’t been nearly enough bike rides, hikes, no paddling trips at all, not enough yoga, and there is never enough swimming. I hope to make it through the next 9 or so weeks until the Quesnel Farmer’s Market is done, but I will need help next year: 8 hours on Wednesdays to help with pizza prep and sales, and 4 to 6 hours on Friday afternoons to help with shaping and baking bread. Know anyone who is interested in being a part of the good food revolution?

While I am chained to the counter in the dough room of the bakery, Tim is busy doing a million things. Word has gotten out that he will fix bikes in a timely manner, and this pleases him immensely! What better thing to do while waiting for the grain to go through the mill than tinker on bikes? Word has also gotten out that Tim will happily take old bikes and  old bike parts off your hands. He is amassing quite a stock pile of bits and pieces, and is looking forward to long winter afternoons of welding up some more quirky rides and objets d’art!

    1. Good idea – keeping the solution in the community. In the meantime which is the monster? – the joyous excess of bike bits and pieces or the ever increasing excess of hungry customers wanting yummy scones and bread.
