Cranberry growing is a lot of hard work. Cranberry harvest is like adding steroids to the mix. It's hard both physically and mentally. Little kids just live in every moment. They don't care if the cleaner is broke down or the crop isn't what was hoped for or the weather is bad. To them it's just cranberry harvest. Everything about it is intriguing and my littles want to spend as much time as possible out on the marsh during harvest. Sometimes they (we) get in the way, but I think the smiles and energy they bring to the crew is uplifting.
The harvest gets underway again, tomorrow. Stay tuned for Everything Cranberry.
