NBW Mattapoisett Ride

This was the club ride last week. I was in PA. last week, so I decided to do it today, it's one of my favorites. This ride should be called the Cranberry Bog Ride, we go by so many of them. I lucked out today and got to see two bogs being harvested.

Wherever there are bogs, there's water.

King Richards Fair.

This was the first bog I came by that was being harvested. They flood the bogs, then shake the cranberry vines until the berries float to the surface. Then this conveyor fills the truck with them.

This was another bog and they were sucking them up with a vacuum pump, instead of a conveyor.
