I need a place to buy raspberry and blueberry bushes and strawberry plants, other than Lowes/Walmart/etc. Any suggestions?

Felenz Farm in Phelps may have plants.

http://fellenzfamilyfarm.com/

I have two heirloom seed catalogs if anyone is interested in them. I decided not to have a garden due to possible poisons being sprayed nearby. I'm not even going to plant my milkweed seeds as my yard may have been contaminated. I do not think it wise to attract bees and butterflies towards poison. I read that it takes 22 years for glyphosate a/k/a Round Up to break down and it takes over the perennial plants.

I would like to give my seeds to someone that has some virgin land away from any farming/spraying, especially corn and soy.

There is Seed Savers Exchange .com and they have great news they are going to be selling heirloom apple trees in 2015.

If you have a gmo apple tree, cut it down and burn it.

FYI: heirloom apple trees saved by this guy for 30 years.

The year my Dad died I was very late in getting my tomato plants. I ended up getting them from Lowe's and they were diseased. Even though I thoroughly cleaned that area, my tomatoes for the next three seasons ended up getting diseased. I no longer plant anything in that area, and I won't buy any plants from big box stores again.

It's not advised to plant tomatoes in the same area in successive seasons anyway. You can clean up all you want, but diseases are also in the soil:
