It’s some kind of conspiracy!

July 19, 2009

It’s been a busy week! We came back from a restful visit with my family (pictures on Facebook) and dove right in. By ‘right in’ I mean Joel had to go to work an hour after we got back. On Monday I spent a lot of time getting ready to launch my new business. I am selling 100% whole wheat sourdough bread and bagels from the shop. I make them the day before and let them have one rise, then shape them and put them in the refrigerator overnight, so I can bake them as soon as I get up and have fresh baked bread available in the morning. So far bagels have not taken off, but I have sold 3 loaves of bread! I have also taken some to play practice and the church coffee hour and people really like it. I don’t think there is very much potential in the way of income because of rather limited facilities and demand, but I am enjoying it for what it is. I also plan to expand my line to include frozen pizza crusts and dried pasta soon, once people are aware of the benefits of sourdough for the taste and nutrition of whole wheat products!

Here's my little display in the shop. Signs on the right explain "Why Sourdough?" and product availability.

Another fun thing that happened this week was harvesting garlic.

Pull!

Pull!

This year's harvest. Apparently it's a good one, but I can't take much credit for that, since all I did was weed it a little.

    I would totally go for your bagels if I were there! Your table display is lovely. And the garlic looks beautiful too. : )

    Also wondering about the Beaker picture. Is that the conspiracy? Muppets taking over Acworth?

    I don’t understand why nobody went for your bagels! Everything looks wonderful – I hope you’re very successful! Thanks for sharing your sourdough advice at my blog.
