After the storm the team was halfway through the Falmouth bogs off Carriage Shop Road.  This is such a long stretch of bog that the secrets of the trade are laid bare for the slowest of comprehension to see.  What becomes clear in these bogs is that there is simply not enough water to flood them all, so the work proceeds in steps, from top to bottom from high ground to low ground.  The sequence is -- flood the top two bogs, beat the berries in the first, and move on to the second.  As the berries are gathered in the first, release the water slowly and flow into the third.  When the beaters are done the second, they move to the third, the gatherers move to the second, and so it goes.

There are fifteen segments to the large Falmouth bog and the crew was there for seven days.  Two segments a day.  Flood, remove sprinklers, beat, gather with the boom, pump, haul, drain.  This is the cycle.  This was done twice a day for a week.  For the first three days it was done in constant rain.  For the last four days the sun was shining in glory.
