Rye Bread using light Rye Flour

Just put this into the oven! Bread dough seemed quite tough/dry when I was kneading it and so I didn't really expect this to actually rise. I resisted putting in extra water and did as the recipe said (although did add pumpkin and sunflower seeds)........seems to have risen and is now in oven cooking, smells amazing so fingers crossed!!
