Well, this is exciting, and a little bit scary. Proposal for the book of Our Daily Bread is on its way to publisher. Now to wait. Fortunately, baking with natural leavens teaches patience.

Thanks Aaron for your mention of my wheat and bread podcasts. You raise an interesting question about aboriginal bread in Australia. I've listened to a podcast with Bruce Pascoe and read a general piece that was awfully muddled, but I have not read his book. I have no reason not to take his claims at face value, although I also think that the freight he is adding to those claims owes as much to the general status and recent past history of aboriginal people in Australia as it does to archaeology. I will certainly be including something in the book I am working on.

I could extract quote after quote from Colin Tudge's latest essay on agriculture, at http://www.campaignforrealfarming.org/2018/10/why-wont-the-powers-that-be-take-agriculture-seriously... but it would undermine the whole, just as a steak undermines a whole cow or an organic loaf of bread undermines the fertility-building beans needed to produce it. Just go read.

Terrific. FB Just banned a friend's link to my latest podcast episode (Brown v. White; Our Daily Bread 23). Twice, for reasons unspoken that I can only imagine. They did not ban my link to the same post.

After enjoying a lovely day off yesterday, I've been paying for it today. Haven’t been away from the desk for more than about half an hour at a time. Mind you, most of that was to make a bread, and now that I’m done, I think I’ll go for a walk while the microbes do their thing.

Episode 01 of my contribution to Dog Days of Podcasting is up. [The Abundance of Nature](https://www.eatthispodcast.com/our-daily-bread-01/)

I'm going to be exploring the history of wheat and bread every day in August.

Read it and weep (tears of joy). Bonnie Ohara of Alchemy Bread tells some of the story of her home-baking operation and how she has helped to create and nourish her local community. http://www.alchemybread.com/blog/2018/1/8/a60p0pdh15xudsrj7wu0qar0s8ix82
