Shake Shake Shake...

Barb shakes a suitcase at sunup
Watched the sun come up this a.m., the first day of fall and shook out a bunch of clam nursery trays (aka suitcases).  Cages are flipped and shaken to remove the sand and all that is left are the clam seed.  Back at the shop we remove all the tiny crabs that have settled through the mesh of the suitcase and grown inside during the summer.  Next we weigh and count the seed volumetrically so that we can plant at a constant density.
