Crazy, right?

Have any of you ever tried to make sourdough from scratch? I've been baking since I got into the new house, for something to do, and also because it's one less thing to buy during this time of rent/deposit/trip to new york recovery. I just started my own starter (because clearly I need another pet)...and I have to say, I think it's doing it's thing ALREADY, despite the directions saying it might take a full week to gather enough wild yeast from the air and get bubbly. It's weirdly exciting.

Of course, given all the mold and humidity and stuff, I guess it's likely that we have more wild yeast in the air too, that sort of makes sense. Anyway, I'm curious to hear if anyone else has tried this, and what their experience was like.
