Harvesting cranberries, Johnston's Marsh, Ontario
October is the month for harvesting cranberries in Ontario. Last year my husband and I visited this marsh to see the harvesting firsthand. (I cannot remember why these photos did not make it to this blog last year.
As you can see, even the young were involved in this operation. The older lad got to run the machinery and the younger "got to" hop in and out of the water (which isn't very deep) to change the rectangular pans that were collecting the cranberries. (In the upper left-hand corner of the mosaic below, you can see the lad in the water.)
Reflections in Johnston's Marsh
The trees were absolutely gorgeous last year, I think perhaps a tad lovelier than this year.
