Those are a lot of cool and helpful tools. Welcome to Permies, and thanks for sharing your knowledge!

Those tools look very tough. I like it when people make things that are built to last.

Is it possible to have too much gear? Asking for a friend.

My Loma Creek headlamp never leaves my coat pocket all winter unless it's on my head. It's used several times a day here since it's dark in the morning when I take care of creatures before work, and dark by the time I get done with work in the evening. I have several other headlamps, but this is my go-to and the one I always carry. I couldn't think of a better endorsement than a picture of my well-used, but still fully functional, headlamp. I pulled it out of my pocket for a quick picture.
Forgot to add, I have two pairs of the pruning shears as well and they are simply awesome.
I've given my children *stranger* Christmas gifts - not to mention other people's children. One year I got tired of the two kids fighting over a set of Peltor Hearing protectors. They each got a pair for Christmas, labelled with their names. Number 1 son eventually managed to lose his, but #2 son still has his and uses them regularly and occasionally loans them to mom (I have a *very* noisy mix-master that does a great job. He will come up behind me and pop his hearing protectors on my head if he thinks the machine's taking too long - he's a keeper!)
It truly is a great headlamp, and I might just end up buying more so my kids can each wear one!

Today is my baking day so I will be in and out intermittently, but will strive to get everyone's questions answered.

I did a one-off sourdough market stall last week and am now getting requests for more bread and wondering how to make it work. I baked 6 loaves yesterday in our little home oven for this, but I'm wondering if it is possible to do more than this in one day from home, and if you have any wisdom to share from running a small sourdough business?
