So when exactly is salt season? It begins in early summer, when sea water is channeled into a series of shallow fields or ponds lined with clay. As the summer sun and wind cause the water to evaporate, a layer of salt appears, which the salt-marsh farmers, or paludiers, gather in August and September with a wooden rake or lousse.
