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.

@journeymanhisto I find it incomprehensible why anyone would write 13 separate little tweets instead of a blog post. Luckily, @threadapp captured the story at https://threader.app/thread/1044577825091514368.
Also a central topic in my podcast series Our Daily Bread, especially episode 13.
