    Cranberry bogs in Washington state produce solid hues of vibrant red each fall as one of the state's lesser-known crops is harvested in the months before Thanksgiving.

    This year's crop of about 194,000 barrels of cranberries puts the apple-giant state fifth in the U.S., according to federal estimates. Wisconsin and Massachusetts produce the bulk of the crop.

    [NATL] What Are Soundwave Tattoos?

    What if tattoos could talk? That's what Nate Siggard, CEO and founder of Skin Motion, is trying to do with his soundwave tattoo app. It works like this: users can upload sounds and voices to the app, creating a waveform of the audio. They can print out these waveforms and have them turned into tattoos. They can point their mobile phone or tablet device at the tattoo and use the app to play back the sound.

    Malcolm and Ardell McPhail have operated CranMac Farm for more than 35 years, one of the largest and oldest cranberry farms in Washington.

    Their harvest of about 1,000 tons of cranberries this year is slightly down from 2015, but Malcolm says new varieties are increasing the yield-per-acre from the peat-rich soil on his farm and others.

    The resulting surplus nationally has driven prices down, but McPhail says he's optimistic.

    "It's nice to grow a healthy crop," he said, adding, "We hardly eat a meal that we don't have cranberries."
