We have gotten 6+ inches of rain in the last week at the station. The berries are putting on size and the flea beetles are under control.
The big project for the coming weeks is preparing the ground for the 2ac pollinator garden, which will be planted on Sept 1.

The other exciting new news, is that we will have internet in the office, starting next week!This article was posted in Cranberry and tagged Cranberries, cranberry, WCRS, Wisconsin Cranberry Research Station.
