~Our local community center is hosting Lacamas Community Center SATURDAY MARKET !This will be the first, but hopefully not the last of a Market attempting to promote , encourage, and profit the small holdings in the area. Many in this area grow or raise farm produce, farm animals, or products made from what is grown on their small holdings. I will be bringing things to sell too. Yarn ( above ) and wool batts ( below ) from the fleece of my Jacob sheep.
~ I also spent a fair bit of time today deciding which of my many Frizzles I could bear to sell...and after choosing, rounding up, and dusting them with an insecticide type powder ( poultry dust )..I crated up three Frizzles to sell....a rooster and 2 small hens.~...and after a busy winter, my dove population has reached a number that cries for MORE dove pens, and much more money for the Dove & Quail Food, or..yup, gotta sell some doves . I decided on the 4 I could part with and they too were dusted with poultry dust and crated for the market. ~Since this is the very first SATURDAY MARKET, and the weather forecast calls for rain and low temperatures, there might be a small turn-out, but I will dress warm and bring my spinning wheel to spin up more yarn while I visit with friends who also will be selling their farm products. I fully intend to have fun, no matter what, and I hope we continue to do this throughout the year...so if you're in the area, come on out to Lacamas Community Center and browse! Maybe something will strike your fancy and you will buy too!
