First up....Carleton mushrooms!
What a place....I had no idea how complicated it was to grow mushrooms.
These rooms are continually monitored for heat and humidity...and other things that I know nothing about.
Rooms and rooms of growing mushrooms.
The owner dug out all these bogs....in what once was all bush property.
Then he planted the cranberries in the bogs.
When it's time to harvest, he floods the bogs and then goes through them with a machine with a whirly bird on the front of it....and it gets all the cranberries to rise to the top of the water and then they skim them off the top.
Then they need to be sorted....and bagged. He also makes cranberry juice and dries them too.
We had 'picnics on the bus' in between stops.
Next up....Sun Tech Tomatoes.
This place was incredible....they grow everything using 'coco' slabs and water....NO soil!
The plants just grow and grow and they have to keep wrapping them around the end of the row....and they just keep growing.
Their tomatoes and cucumbers are SO yummy!
