I’ve never seen real bread for sale, you can tell from the weight. The loaves I made yesterday weighted in at over 1.5kg! This sourdough was made from a selection of whole grain organic flours (yesterday’s pizza dough was taken from the proving dough) including: coarse rye, emmer, barley, coarse spelt, svedjerug and a few barley and svedjerug grains and fresh ground elder (skvallerkål) mixed in at the end!
At least the ground elder and seed toppings were home grown, from left to right – caraway (karve), opium poppy (opiumvalmue) and greater plantain (groblad) / Plantago major
At the moment there are many of these tiny red so-called velvet mites (probably Trombidium holosericeum) crawling around hunting on open soil and compost in the garden. I knew almost nothing about them, but just discovered that the larvae attach themselves to spiders, harvestmen and insects as in this picture…I’d seen this before in the garden but hadn’t realised before!
