Okay to Transfer Starter

January 28, 2011 - 9:17am -- rlmoon

After a couple false starts on my first attempt at a sourdough starter, I have me first starter and it's ALIVE!! Maybe too much  :-O

On day 6 (today), I was coming downstairs and could smell that nice yeasty smell and to my surprise when I walked into the kitchen I found that the starter had come ALIVE and was spilling out of the top of the jar (when it has always been about 1/4 to 1/3 of the jar). It's growing like crazy now and I just had to stir it down again.

Wheat Seeds?

October 12, 2008 - 9:11am -- Barkalounger

Does anyone have a good online source for small amounts of wheat seeds?  I have a very small plot of land (very small - 4'X4') and a I realize I won't get much of a yeild, but I want my kids to see how bread gets to the table from beginning to end.


I've found a few places that sell 3, 6, 9 pound bags online, but I need much less.  And, since I procrastionated, I suppose I'll need to grow spring wheat instead of winter.
