Thanks, guy ! needless to say, it was all pretty interesting, and I keep telling everyone they really should go see it next year. I added a few more shots of the cranberry plant and a dry bog, too. (did you know that cranberries are closely related to blueberries and huckleberries? They're in the same genus as blueberries - Vaccinium)

And Thanksgiving Dinner too, don't forget. Yes, I agree, it is a great tour! I had no idea they'd be shipped in trucks like that! I thought they'd be in boxes.

Thanks.

Jean

thanks, jean and steve - Jean - I think they just truck them internally on the farm in these trucks, over to the processing/packing buildings that are to the south east of this mapped area - closer to where I look the shots with the rising moon reflected in the lake. I have to confess - I haven't read through the explanations on all the steps that are on the website www.cranberries.org . But apparently, the cranberries that are harvested this way are the ones used for cranberry juice, sauces, etc. The ones that we can buy at the actual fruit are dry harvested by hand. There's a photo and explanation of that on that website.

(and jean - check out the shot I got today and just posted - not great photography, but it answers a question you had a few weeks ago. )
