    Is the water really that deep? Or is He on his knees?

    Editor’s note:WHYY.ORG This story was updated to reflect that deer, in addition to tundra swans, love cranberries. Did not know that

    Workers from Puerto Rico? That is surprising. I wonder what talent they bring that cannot be found here. Could it be ambition?

    Even with higher wages nobody wants to do farm work anymore. Sad but true! Employee turnover is never ending in farm life.
