Spring has officially sprung in the Northwoods! Everyone was very excited to get outside and busy putting in irrigation and spring projects around the farm. The fight with frozen underground this spring was a tough one as just 13 days ago our ice finally went out on the lakes, I still have two lines that are not thawed all the way down the bed! Most if not all growers have started frost watch this past weekend as things are really moving along fast up here. It always amazes me how fast the plants can make up time and be right on track with previous years. We are not renovating here this year but the neighbors just cut and bailed vines for their projects, everyone is also gearing up air booms to apply spring applications. It looks like mother nature wasn’t truly ready for summer this week but after that it looks as if things should warm up and we will get some of that much needed beauty rest at night again. Stay safe, stay happy and have a berry good month everyone! These photos are only 20 days apart!This article was posted in Cranberry and tagged Cranberries, grower update.
