Rediscovered Treasure

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)

Blueberries again

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 🙂
