The basic bread

So, a friend asked to see the bread making process, instead of just the fire in the earth oven.
3 cups warm water
1/2 teaspoon of yeast
3 cups white flour
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon of salt
let it sit overnight, covered, so it looks like this in the morning:
 scoop it out onto a floured surface:
 fold it into thirds and tuck it into a ball (this is the slightly artful part):
 let it rise for 90 minutes, bake for about 25 minutes, cool, slice, eat:
