Hello everyone, what a wonderful time we all had at the summer show this year! Hats off to all those who worked so hard to make it such a perfect day! We have been busy here cleaning ditches, mowing and catching up on several projects that got set to the side during fertilizer season. Fruit is looking very good across the marshes up north with a general agreement that we all wish they were a little bigger. The weather has been favorable to put on more size and looks to remain that way for another week or two so all fingers and toes are crossed. Bug activity has been minimal, I did have to spray one section for flea beetle, and I know several other marshes had to do the same but overall low bug pressure. Everyone is starting to dig out harvest equipment, getting things ready and thinking about that wonderful time of the year. Provided all goes well and color allows I am looking at a start date of Sept 19th, I may be able to get going the week before that on some earlier beds. Hope everyone is having a great “calm before the storm” month and I wish everyone a happy, healthy, and safe start to harvest season! Have a berry great harvest!This article was posted in Cranberry and tagged Cranberries, grower update.
