Wonderful perspective, love the idea of a garden of seaweed!

Thank you, Debra. I don't get to see it often, which makes the view even more precious.

Beautiful shots!

By the way, I sometimes wonder how they raise/harvest seaweed for culinary purposes...

Simona Carini

Hi Frank. Good question! I am not sure about seaweed farming, but I know that one can harvest seaweed along the coast, subject to limits depending on the entity that manages the beach (State, County, etc.) and also to good harvesting practices. I went once with a friend who knows all of the above, so I followed her instructions.
There is a bit of process involved to clean, dry and then prepare the seaweeds for storage, but it is worth it. For example, I always use a piece of kombu when I cook legumes or make certain soups.
