Cranberry Harvest 2008

We had another wonderful year at the beach harvesting cranberries!
Sparky had a great time too....don't worry, you won't find any sparky hairs in your crazons or jellied berries.
A few days before harvest the bogs get flooded with water, then my uncle Ed thrashes the vines with a trasher machine. The berries float to the top of the water. We use floating boards with hinges to corral the berries and bring them to this machine.
The neighbor kids love all the excitement too. And they keep my kids entertained!
