Cranberry Bogs In Bloom is a Treat for the Bees
Cranberries in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey are in full bloom in August as the berries kick off their growth and get ready for harvest in September. Nearby beekeepers transport their honey bees to the cranberry bogs to pollinate the blossoms to ensure there will be a plentiful crop. When the berries are at their fullest, farmers flood the cranberry bogs and use a paddle boat to knock the berries off the submerged bushes, allowing them to float to the surface for easy harvesting.
