Forever on the hunt for a new nursery since we don’t have Putney’s in Arcadia anymore where we were spoiled with great customer service; yesterday Dorothy, my mother in law, and I went to Greystone Nursery just south of Empire. I hadn’t been there in years. Actually I thought it had closed a long time ago. They only moved across M-22 to a really great location. We brought home some beautiful plants.
I just loved that gardener. She walked around without shoes (ouch my feet)
The Tall Ship came in. You remember that I told you about that a little while ago
THAT was awsommmmmme 😆
Not exactly MY ship but cool nonetheless …

On August 19 we finally made it to Honor and the Straubel’s blueberry patch.
Remember Joe the Bachelor and I went on July 30th or so to get blueberries there
but the place was still closed.
Blueberry picking at the Straubels begins on August 1st.
I couldn’t go the next day, but I made it 18 days later.
The boys came along after I urged, errrr…. threatened them with
“no dinner if you don’t help” – that worked.
Hmmm, the place had been picked over like I have never seen it before.
Kind of sad, we left after only getting one quart picked.
Too bad because they have the best berries
– watered only with the water from the creek –
no chemicals what so ever.
And last, a really cool looking gnarly tree 🙂
