In her enthusiasm, the recent recruit to the sea allotment society in the pretty fishing village of Kerteminde in Denmark hung ropes so overstuffed with baby mussels that she was unable to lift them out of the water.“It was a total mess out there. They’re all helping to clean up, restock them and hang them up again,” says the painter and architect as she and two companions pull the straggly “beards” off mussels behind a dark wooden fishing shed. “But now,” she brightens, pointing to the bucket of mussels she is taking home, “I get all the rewards.” Continue reading...
