Blueberries are possible but you’ll need to get to the market at 10 am to insure getting a pint or two (if there are any at all). Lettuce, arugula and other greens will be plentiful. Wild mushrooms (lobster, matsutake and chanterelle (white and yellow) mushrooms should be readily available. Buttercup, butternut and delicata squashes should be available this week
