• Mussel Mess

    March 25, 2011

    It’s hard to tumble when you’re all tied up in knots:

    Darn mussels have invaded our tumble bags, using their byssal threads to attach everything up into one big messy mass. After spending several hours trying to go through the bags by hand, removing all the mussels, we’ve decided to just dump the mussel mess out on the beach. The mussels will die in the intertidal beach, and the oysters will have to come to terms with the fact that they’re now going to be beach grown, not tumbled.
