The Cranberries of Yesterweek: Images to Share

Finally, thanks to Ray Yeager, Faith Bahadurian, and others of my blogging colleagues, I’ve found the way to enter the pictures into the ‘Library’ anew.

Now the challenge is adding text.  With any luck, I can explain what follows.

If not, you’ll just have to realize this is the journey of a Pine Barrens Cranberry: from the antique method with one of the Adams Bogs’ vintage cranberry ‘combs’; through their fields, in the new dry harvest program, where neighbors pitch in to bring in the crop; to the cranberry-bounce process — only the ripest, healthiest bounce; and a computer rejects the pale ones; into bags, then my strainer, the pot with tangerine juice and one small cinnamon stick, to supper.

Bon Appetit!
