Grower Update: Vilas 51
Welp, she’s been a chilly start to the growing season! Between running long nights of frost, rain days and the gosh darn hurricane force winds we have had our fair share of challenges up north so far. There’s even been rumors of breaking out the long johns again! All jokes aside the vines have really slowed down the past couple weeks, but with great progress in the last week as temps are finally getting into the 70’s again. With most if not all spring herbicides on, growers have been busy working on beds to plant, pulling weeds, road work, ditching and all those other pesky jobs that are always on the to-do list. With the cold temperatures bug pressure has not been an issue yet. Even though it seems like we are on the movie Groundhog Day trying to get out of this rut of a spring we have been in, it won’t be long and the bees will be here and working hard! Have a wonderful June everyone!This article was posted in Cranberry and tagged Cranberries, grower update.
