It was a beautiful morning with rain promised later so off we went to Swanpool beach to collect seaweed to mulch and feed the veggie beds at the lottie. There were a few families at the beach and more at the cafe where we had hot chocolates after filling our bags.
We covered the empty beds at the allotment with seaweed and I was reminded, when I saw the multicolours and shapes of what we collected today, of a project I did at Truro County Grammar School many years ago. The project was to collect many varieties, which we dried, pressed and named. I wish I could remember the names of all the varieties now.
