On May 4 we harvested the kelp! Tollef came to help us in his boat. Several parents also helped. Please enjoy the pictures and journal entry.
Tollef met us at the dock, and we made a plan.
We found an elver.
We put the GoPro camera on Jonathan.
We took the rope off the piling and pulled it out of the water.
We used a hauler to hold the line out of the water.
We took kelp off the line. We separated the blades of kelp from the ectocampus, another type of seaweed that we don’t want to eat.
We pretended to be kelp spores and ran down the dock to help us stay warm.
We tested the water.
We cleaned the kelp, blanched it, and froze it.
We tasted some of the kelp. Not bad!
