Blueberries! June Berries!
This is the view from my office porthole. One of Chiba-san's crew is laboring away planting 10 blueberry bushes in three varieties, and one juneberry. What's a juneberry? Damned if I know, really. But it has very pretty foliage, and the makings of some juicy red berries. Chiba-san seems to be able get 2 m tall shrubs and plant them in bark compost for cheaper than you can buy 10 cm sticks in a plastic pot. This is good wizardry.
