On Sunday my mom's boyfriend took us by skiff to the bog this time.
Let me just tell you, I am actually glad we walked in the first time because going by boat was WAAAAAY faster! *and super pretty*
Too bad it was too shaky to take any good photos on the boat...
We got a TON of cranberries.
I think I am going to bag some up and bring them to sell at the farmers' market next monday.
I was going to try to make chutney to sell too, but I don't think I will have time.
I have come to the conclusion that we need a rake with a scoop on the back to help get the cranberries faster. Also, we went further into the bog this time where it was wetter, the cranberries were HUGE and there were hoards of them compared to where we were picking on the first trip.
We had a good time, I thought it was especially amusing watching Dan (my mom's bf) trudging in his waders with his super "fancy" basket (read: found- or stolen- shopping basket).
And my mom thought that if she got a running start down one dune, it would be easier to get up the other side... It didn't work.
I think in all we picked 5 gallon bags full of craberries and Dan half filled his basket.
That's a lot of cranberries.
Now I have to do something with them.
I will definitely make pie and hopefully chutney when I have time.
Any other suggestions...?
