Anyone going to the beach?

Post  camprn on 5/17/2011, 8:19 pm

Next time you are heading to the beach, pack a few extra empty sacks and pick up as much seaweed you can stuff into the car! hmmm... I could use a road trip... Very Happy

darn it! I just got back from Hilton Head Sunday!

I never would have thought to harvest seaweed, I was however eyeballing the towering tall bamboo imagining my awesome bean teepee I could make!

I wish I had but we were only there for a couple of days and the bamboo I saw was on private property, boo. I already have a bean teepee in the plans at home but I read I should use 8 to 10 ft poles and I can't find 10 foot poles anywhere! I finally found 8 ft poles at Garden Ridge but they were $5 ea and the teepee needs like 10-12 poles- I don't want it that badly! I might be tying together some 5 ft poles I already have!

camprn - I'm a lot closer to the beach than you are, but I heard some organic gardeners talk about their trips to the coastline to pick up garbage bags full of seaweed - I believe you are only allowed to take 3 garbage bags at a time, altho that may be a rough estimate. Anyway, they limit your take, and the takers were raving about seaweed as mulch, and loving it. (They were using it in sheet mulching beds)

(I love that website! Thanks!)

thanks thanks thanks

I don't know why I never thought about seaweed....I feel like such a dunce! I am a mile from the beach, and we go constantly in the summer! I'm on the Gulf Coast and the water is usually clear, but we do have weeks where masses patches of seaweed will wash up and it makes the water pretty gross for swimming. I never thought about taking it to put into the garden.

Finally, something I can do when we get into the 2 or 3 months where it is to hot/humid to grow much.
