I'm extremely new to Blockchain and mining, and I've followed this tutorial to create my first private blockchain. I am stuck when it comes to mining and I'm afraid I'm quite lost. Afte I've started the miner with miner.start(), the geth console keeps generating the DAG in a loop-but eventually geneates it , and keeps looking for a peer, like this:

peer looking

I've googled a bit and figured the values of Blocknumber and hashrate are key to knowing what's happening , my blockNumber has been stuck on 0 while hashrate changed after 2 minutes of mining:

Can anyone please help me understand what's going on and how can I fix this?
