winter weather comes early

December 9, 2008

 

Ice formed on the foxtail reeds after a day of 50mph west winds pulled moisture from the bay. Temperatures were in the 20s all day.

 

I planned an experiment to test the growth of marsh mussels as an edible species. The basic plan is to grow then in deeper water under an unused dock in Nantuxent Cove (rather than the intertidal waters as in this photo) in a less dense environment and as they approach 4" then move them to filter in clean well water treated with salt and cornstarch. Hopefully this will address the naturally bitter taste of marsh mussels.

 

Cricket seems to love the cold weather and we walked a few miles today handling errands for neighbors.
