One of the things we are not going to be able to do here is be entirely self-sufficient when it comes to grains for bread making – we just don’t have the space to grow enough to provide that part of our diet. At some point though we will look into supplementing the grains we buy, and of course we will have some seeds from the garden that can be added to bread.
What we can do is be clear about what we are ingesting. I make bread myself, so I can monitor exactly what goes into it. This also enables us to avoid at least some plastic packaging.
Today I made one of my basic, rustic crusty wholemeal loaves, with added mixed seeds which really add to the flavour.
With our dinner we also had a side dish of micro-greens – cress, spring onions and mixed salad leaves. One tiny step towards eating food that we have grown here ourselves.
