The first place we went to was the Cranberry Museum. We were able to walk around the bog beds. I've never seen them grow before and always thought they were a bush. They are actually a vine which takes 3 years to mature and grow fruit. These cranberries are sold to Ocean Spray. The bogs themselves just look like weedy patches of a field, but when you look closer you're able to see the berries on the vines.

When we saw these the other day we were trying to figure out what they were. All I could think of was bee houses. But they are bait boxes for crab pots. I should have known that, right?? We got two of them to hang with the rest of our stuff at home.
