Natural fertiliser

Yesterday was the most beautiful day, and we managed to persuade Farmer to accompany us to the beach.  He suggested we walked along the pier track as we hadn't walked along there for years..  it was lovely to look across at Treshnish from there, the sea was flat calm and still, the sun was warm and we had the path to ourselves. For more photographs have a look at the website blog

Today the beach was a little busier, but not for long.  The seaweed washed up in the storms makes great natural fertiliser, and for a farmer with a bad back, being able to use the loader to fill his trailer is a huge help.   This will go on the little triangle field behind Shian and Duill which we have cut for silage twice without applying any FYM or seaweed.
