where are they?

Sourdough whole wheat bread I baked two days ago. Still not following a recipe, but I'm getting wiser. 

I used almost all whole wheat flour, and the starter had been fed with whole wheat for the last couple of feedings. Added roasted sunflower seeds, roasted sesame seeds, and flax seeds. I thought I'd put in a ton, but they're not very present, are they? Can't taste them much either. Next time I'll put in twice as much. 

Lessons learned:
  • remember to soak whole grains the night before, so you can add them too
  • less starter - it's OK to waste, as long as you don't tell my mom
  • vastly increase seed ratio
  • buy your seeds elsewhere so they're fresher
