    History of NJ Cranberry industry?

    I have a question. Does anyone here have any personal knowledge of a cranberry bog...or bogs... abandoned in the early 1960s? I am more than a little curious about the degree and rate of overgrowth by adjoining woodlands or lower vegetation that might obscure their identification as once active...

    Abandoned Cranberry Packing house and bog at Double Trouble. A friend of mine from NJ (on a photgraphy forum) posted this image which I recognized as the packing house at the cranberry bogs at Double Trouble (where Joe Palmer sent his crew for both ditchwork and herbicide spraying in the summer...

    History of NJ Cranberry industry?

    Those fascinating “historic aerials” are exactly what have occupied much time of late! And I couldn’t agree more with that quote from Eagleman! In my ninth decade of life I am well aware of the difficulties encountered daily in separating documentably confirmable ,” hard-copy facts” of the...

    History of NJ Cranberry industry?

    I do appreciate the effort, guys, but I’m still drawing a blank on seeing anything with the characteristics of “my lost bog”. I’m guessing that it was between 1/10 to 2/10 of a mile east of the bog to reach the right turn that took us south to the highway just E of the bridge across the river...

    Ron and Rich, Is there a topo map accessible online that illustrates the bog you describe? I’d love to see it! Dave

    Hi, Rich, Thanks for the welcome back! re: my awareness of the proximity of...A river..just beyond the the bog’s riversid3 levee was the experience of having several times sought snakes in that strip of boggish ground beyond the levee. Yes, I’ve always had a the amateur herperologist’s tendency...

    History of NJ Cranberry industry?

    Boyd, That’s a fascinating series of aerial images. I’m impressed with the variations in water levels, and even va4iations in channel meanders, but, unfortunately, am also impressed with my clearly mistaken use of that road intersection just east of the bridge that I’ve long held in mind as my...

    History of NJ Cranberry industry?

    These are specific recollections...as accurate as m3mory permits...of some characteristics of what I have referred to as “Joe Palmer’s/Pomona’s Wading River bogs”, although I can’t recall specifically why I assumed Joe Palmer’s /Pomona Fruit’s ownership. two (three?) bogs, each longer than...

    History of NJ Cranberry industry?

    Well, at this point, I clearly share in the confusion. This area is, to the best of my memory, where I labored on a couple bogs when employed by Joe Palmer. Are these lines marking present land ownership? Do they indicate such during the 1960s? If so, the bogs I had thought were Joe’s clearly...

    History of NJ Cranberry industry?

    It is a wetland on the East bank of the Wading river opposite the Pomona Fruit bogs of which Teegate posted an image. In trying to locate where a couple small bogs that Joe Palmer had me working on in the summer of ‘60 I was thinking there may be suggestions of the levees of abandoned bogs...

    Teegate, Sorry to be slow about all this, but where would I find your email address?

    Hi, Boyd, Is there an email address to which I could send an image? I may be seeing what I want to see, but the image sent by Teegate of the address of some Pomona properties also displayed the east bank of the Wading river where I may be seeing suggestions of remnant levees of abandoned bogs.
