Earth Ovens

You want mice with that pizza? (or vermin love earth ovens)

Living in the northeast, I keep my earth oven covered with a tarp and dormant over the winter, so the first unveiling of spring is always exciting. Last year it was wasps, this year a huge mouse nest had been built inside. Anyone else have a similar problem with this blasted thing? There's a wonderful photo of mess on my All Things Bread blog.

Bread and all of its manifestations. That's what this blog is about. Particular emphasis is upon earth ovens, sourdough bread baking and flatbreads. Currently, I'm scouring the web and my book collection for photos of earth ovens from around the world. Whenever possible, I list my sources to give the photographer or agency credit for any photos used.
If you have photos of earth ovens and would like to share, please email them to me, and I'll try to put them on my blog.
