    I'll try to do a better image for you later, my lens fogged and before it had a chance to clear, it started to rain on me.
    Yes they are edible, although I don't get a very big crop from just what's in the barrel, Vaccinium macrocarpon.
    I started them as a way to have decorative bog plants growing over the front of the barrel.
    Most folk don't realize that the cranberries in the big "bogs" are flooded to make the harvesting easier, they don't grow as aqautic plants year round. People usually just see the commercials on TV or some show where they are being harvested.
