After my recent dissapointing beach foray in search of seaweed for the garden and compost heap I decided to take a trip over to Keiss beach and check out the so called 'abundance' of seaweed that I've been told about by the locals.
Here's what I found
|Heaps of glorious seaweed.|
|Not sure what type of seaweed it is but it'll do me.|
I'd forgotten to check tide times before leaving and when I saw on the drive in that the tide was actually in I thought I'd have no chance of getting any but I have to say the stuff was everywhere along the entire stretch of beach.
I stood at the opening to the beach and looked at the heaps of Seaweed up and down the coastline and then looked down at my 2 recycled dog food bags I'd bought with me and felt totally unprepared. The bags may be 17.5kg bags but still, I could have collected so much more than I did if I'd taken the time to stock up the bags first, but I didn't (such was my doubt there was even going to be any seaweed).
Oh well, I have 2 bags of Seaweed to get me going and tomorrow I plan to get that Seaweed tea brewing and then any spare I have or get in the future I'm going to coat any new soil beds with it on my garden because I've heard it may put the dogs off getting onto the fresh soil and digging it all back out again.
