The picking crews radioed in. They're a half hour out. The dry-harvest pickers will be able to get started right away. It's slow, hard work.

They'll get a lot of good berries, but the real quantity will come when we flood and wet-harvest the bogs Benny says are more viable for it.

All the pumps we need to use to flood the bogs have been drained of diesel by previous scroungers, but the main convoy is bringing fuel.

With all the noise the motors, trucks, and people will be making, every zombie within a mile will be attracted. But we'll be ready for them.

The picking crews are here. They made a bunch of the comb-like picking scoops Benny showed them how to construct before leaving. Off we go.

We're back from the bogs. All our vehicles are safely inside this empty potato shed (its size and big doors were why we picked it).

05:14 PM #
Zombies weren't too problematic today, though a few were lured in from elsewhere by our noisiness. We already have many, many cranberries!

05:17 PM #
All the berries we have so far were dry-picked by crews walking the bogs. Though we did flood two bogs today after getting the pumps going.

We also got the wet-harvesting equipment fueled up and tested (had to replace some tires and ALL the batteries). We'll use them tomorrow.
