Today I have a few random pictures to share. Here's a newly raked bed. The cranberries floating freely...until tomorrow.
Sam hitches a ride to pick up the trash trailer. On front of the 4-wheeler is the blower, used to blow every last cranberry from the ditch edge before booming the cleanup round.
Cranberries like any plant rely on pollination to flourish. Cranberry growers either rent honeybee hives or buy bumblebee hives. On the trailer are bumblebee quads. They arrive in June to begin pollinating. Many growers will get both types of bees. Honeybees work best in pleasant weather, not unlike me. Whereas bumblebees are willing to work during inclement weather, too.
