Another Seaweed Day

We’ve been preparing the potato and garlic beds; open composting comfrey, borage, adding the remants of the courgette plants; and collecting seaweed. It’s been perfect weather for wandering along the shingle, dodging waves, filling bin bags with seaweed. We gathered enough to spread across the four beds we’re working on. The seaweed will rot down over winter, and we’ll continue open composting to build the beds.

Once the leaves have fallen we can see what Sycamore and Ash needs felling around the site, and use the trunks for terracing, as the beds are on a chalk ridge towards the top of the plot; by open composting we’re making soil.
