    I haven't gardened for a long time - I'm more of a forager.

    Amelanchier alnifolia, aka Saskatoon, service berry.

    My neighbor is a wild blueberry farmer and yesterday I saw his truck pass me with his truck full of large plastic cases full of blueberries. If you have seen the ad for blueberries from Oxford NS, he sells to them.

    This past winter another blueberry company was advertising for small berry pickers, probably raking blueberries, a came so close to signing up. But since I had three bad times blueberry raking that thought was killed pretty fast.

    If they are farmed, are they still wild?

    Wild blueberries aren't planted they seed themselves into clear patches or fields sometimes called barrens, they are fairly close to the ground, but they are sprayed and in the fall every other year they fields are burned. then there are cultivated blueberries or high bush blueberries like the ones in Torsten's picture, they are planted and they have a larger berry.

    Larger than the last ones.
    We've had an insane year for yellow squash. They are big and plentiful.

    I've pulled in a half dozen tomatoes this week too. I need to figure out how to transport water to the house. We are having a heatwave this week.

    Since we haven't really had a bad frost yet the tomatoes specially the cherry tomatoes are still going and still setting flowers.

    Picking tomatoes in the garden, already got a couple of pint boxes of cherry tomatoes and a bag of other kinds and probably another half bag or full bag to pick after that probably mow the lawn. That will probably be that for the garden except for jobs that can be done thru the fall and winter.

    I should go down and look. My "gardening" hasn't been spectacular but the couple handfuls of little tomatoes have been really good. Might be a few left.

    Trying to remove the ivy from the fence between properties. The problem is that there is a 5' wall about 9" from the fence and the ivy has grown up through the gap. I've cut as many "roots" as I can reach, but some of them are as thick as your wrist. Trying my best not to destroy the fence too.

    Well the gardening season is pretty much over for except I might get the tiller going and till it to get a early for next year and hopefully freeze some of the roots of the weeds to death. I might in November go and get some fit tips for wreaths for the house, don't really have a way to get any to the wreath makers, the new car really not designed for it.

    I really thinking about doing some tipping for money a local plant nursery has request tips, probably better for the mental health than being on the internet and seeing the world fall apart.
