Oyster gardening

Yes, there really is such a thing as but most land/soil gardeners will not get the opportunity to try this out. Oyster gardening is something I never heard of before I move from the mid-west to Western Washington. Do any of you do this type of gardening? Over on the Hood Canal side of the Kitsap Peninsula is a well-known business, Taylor Shellfish Farms . Early Spring, one of our dock neighbors at Brownsville Marina (Puget Sound) pulled up a bag and told us about growing oysters off the dock by our boat. The tide in our marina is +4/-1 ft so we are in an ideal location for such a garden. Mike and I made the trip to Taylors to get oyster seed. Very sustainable. So now we begin a new experiment in our new western way of life.
