It is so warm and peaceful here. Charlie and I did some walking and he spotted a lizard of some sort climbing a tree. I checked it out and found out it was The Eastern Fence Lizard. It was very hard to spot because it's skin resembles the bark found on Pine trees

Cranberries are grown over the summer under much the same conditions as any cereal crop. They are grown on a bed of sandy soil and are perennial plants. I was told this farm field was planted over 20 years ago.
|drainage pipes are about every 20 ft across the field|
The machine has large tracks on it and never turns in the field or bog as they call it. Instead there is a ramp that he climbs up on the berm with and turns there and goes back down.
Then a guy with a special hydraulic arm comes along and moves the ramp over ready for the next pass.
|two of the ramps- one for going in one for coming out|
These cranberries are a lot larger than the cranberries we have at home.
The cranberry fields are very pretty when they are floating on the water.
Same view as last night from our window.
