Cranberries are first picked dry. These are used for making cranberry raisins and sold as whole berries in the market.

Then the field is flooded and they float to the top and they harvest again. These are used to make juice, jelly, etc. Almost all the cranberries grown in Cape Cod are sold to Ocean Spray.

Then off to market

I also had no idea!! neither did hubby! We just always saw the commercials of them in water, so I thought they grew that way. BTW... that monkey swinging from you cabin looks very familiar. I think he escaped from my cabin and has been wandering ever since! LOL

This is awesome! I am pretty much a desert rat, living almost my entire life in Arizona. We have great sunsets, but I always admire your pictures from other places! Thank you for sharing.
