[Day 2: First Harvest Seaweed, Putian]
Seaweed Farming in Putian begins early in the early. In Feb and Mar, farmers start collecting seaweed spores using simple rope stretched between bamboo poles. The nutrients from the sea help the seaweed to grow. In this pristine environment, they become a rich source of minerals.
Seaweed can be harvested as many as 12 times a year. The ideal harvesting period for First Harvest Seaweed is about one week, usually during the mid of Lunar September.
