  Cranberries in a coral
by Pawtuxet

Did you know that cranberries grow on vines? I didn't. They are delicate little upright vines...which grow in sandy soil...with trenches all around them in order to be able to flood the bog. The trick is to wait until it is cold enough for them to turn red...but don't wait so long that you catch a frost and lose the entire crop. OUch!
Here the berries are harvested into a flooded area, where they are "corralled" and will later be vaccumed up into a truck to take to a processor.
