Long awaited, but they have finally arrived! About two weeks later then usual, they have come on after this weeks rain. However, beginning tonight we will be gearing up for this weekends markets, so we will not be able to really get in there and pick/process them until Saturday evening. Look for them next weekend!
Keith spent the early part of this week over in Nashville visiting family, so we have not made any additional progress on the building. However, we have recieved a great donation amount and we should now have enough to get the electrical part complete! Hopefully the power company won't make us wait too long to get a meter box put on. It was one of the larger financial hurdles for us, so it is great to see it about to go on the "checked" list. The next projects on the list are small enough we can do just a little at a time as the Lord blesses us with the money to do so. We are still on the hunt for many items, so please check the "sponsor" page to see if there are any tangible items you might have and be willing to donate or sell us at a good price. Meanwhile, I will keep chugging along in my home kitchen, baking as fast as I can! Someone suggested that I hire someone to help with the increasing demand, however I am limited by oven space more then hands. Only so many hours in a day, and I have a commitment to selling the bread as fresh as possible. Some of you may have seen us on Friday, as I rolled up in the van halfway through marketing with more bread--so hot it wasn't even out of the pans yet!
I also introduced Krunchy Kroutons and Cinni-Snackers last week, and they were very well recieved. Many people have made requests for more, but unfortunately, I am making them from unsold bread and unless there are leftovers on Saturday afternoon, I can't offer them every week. Last weekend was a sell out, so no Kroutons this week. It's nice to know that I have (another) use for leftover bread and customers love it. I offered them in 3 flavors, but had several requests for "plain" so I will likely carry those in the future. It won't be an every week thing, so check back with us.
