I was hoping you could read the writing. This was a rock Island .All the soil is man made with seaweed ,sand and bits of clay scaped form the cliffs. I thought it was amazing the work they have done.

"More precious than gold, the man made soil of the Arans yield life giving food in return for pampered care. An Irishman farmer lavishes fertilizer on a field, mixing seaweed and sand with small bits of clay scraped from rock clefts, generations of islanders have created virtually all the Arable land that now covers the Arans stone flagging, Irish potatoes remain the staple crop."

Yeah it just shows what is possible, And all we have to do is a little digging and a little mixing, no more complaining!

You use what you have at hand and there is a lot of seaweed and sand on the Isle of Aran.
