Video: Richmond cranberry harvest in full swing

October means different things to different people -- falling leaves, Halloween pumpkins -- but for some it’s all about the cranberries.

Richmondite Tom Torng noticed a cranberry “wet harvest” while driving along McMillian Way in Richmond last week and was simply amazed by the thousands of bright red berries floating in the bog.

"It looked like a sea of red from far away. It’s really quite beautiful," said Torng, who stopped his car to record the fall phenomenon. 

Torng’s video shows thousands of cranberry crops floating in water while workers in chest waders stand in the water pulling on booms to corral the berries in a circle so they can be loaded onto a truck.
