LONG BEACH, Wash. —

Dry weather is delaying the harvest at some cranberry bogs on the Long Beach Peninsula.

Kim Patten at the Washington State University extension unit at Long Beach says some growers don't have enough water to flood their bogs, and that may stretch out the harvest into November with the risk of frost damage.

The Daily News reports ( http://is.gd/1g0pnY) the dry weather is an advantage for other cranberry growers who use a dry harvest method.

Cranberries are a $2 million business on the Long Beach Peninsula with about 30 growers producing the bitter red fruit for Ocean Spray to make juice and Craisins snacks.
