I’ve blogged about this year’s lambing but it’s been given a page of it’s own, so go have a look. It has some of the ups, and some of the downs – you have been warned.
This year, I decided to try and use seaweed on my potatoes & vegetables, after talking to one of my mates about it. The seaweed washes up on Traigh Dhail (Dell beach), about a mile away from my house. We both went down with our tractors and I took home two loads of seaweed. I filmed it on my phone and you can see a wee video of how it was done here: Collecting Seaweed
His tractor has a grab, which allows the seaweed to be gathered in a matter of minutes. It would take probably an hour to fill it by hand
The seaweed has been sitting on the croft for nearly two months, allowing it to rot a bit. Over the past 10 days, we have planted the potatoes, using the seaweed as fertiliser. I will use some on my vegetable plot as well.
