Welcome to Spring! We have lots of good news to share with you.
We have had big fun learning the quirks and nuances of our beautiful oven, Ceres. We spent the winter months letting her cure and settle. Now that the weather makes it inviting, we've been giving her long, slow heats. Last weekend was the biggest burn to date.
After 2 days of steady burning, we were able to really use Ceres and all of her range, from bread to roasted vegetables to cookies. Because of her tremendous insulation, without a proper door, she held temperatures above 350 for at least 12 hours.
We're in the process of having the door fabricated. Once we do, we'll be able to produce high quality, lovingly prepared artisan breads and so much more. We hope this is soon as we are as anxious to deliver your rewards as you are to receive them!
An architect is working on revisions to the shelter design. We are envisioning a modest but welcoming structure that will enhance the garden and allow us to comfortably use the oven 3/4 of the year. We have very little space, so we want it to be expandable to accommodate those who want to bake and learn with us.
And the plants are thriving in these damp days. Those who opted for plants will enjoy healthy, thriving additions to your garden.
We can't thank you enough for believing in our vision and we look forward to breaking bread with you.
Happy baking, Melina and Pete
