Fact of the Day: Cranberry Pond

Cranberries are grown typically around sandy bogs and marshes. Since they float, they may often flood a bog when they're ready to harvest the cranberries.

I love the way you captured the red "field" of cranberries against the beautiful blues in the background. Blessings!

they do similar thing with red peppers here, when they harvest them they will spread them on acres and acres of Vojvodinian fields which turn red while the peppers dry! We're huge producers of paprika

Don't you love that cranberry commercial of the two guys standing in the middle of a cranberry bog and the goofy antics of the younger guy and then, how the older one chuckles. LOL
