We are starting to clear areas that we will use in the late Summer and Fall for planting our baby clams. These are older clam rows that have already been harvested, but still contain a few bushels of clams that we missed. We'll go through them with bullrakes and remove the clams and shell material. Each row is about 12 feet wide by 100 feet long and will be stocked with about 80,000 seed clams. Meanwhile, the seed are growing in their nursery trays, protected from crabs and birds, bathed by the tides, until we are ready to plant them out in the sand.
