Went boysenberry picking early this morning and picked about 10 pounds of berries. It was at a U Pick place down the road from us. Boysenberries are a hybrid of blackberry, raspberry and loganberry and were first brought together by Mr. Boyson. I think he eventually turned them over to the Knotts family of Knotts Berry Farm fame- next to Disneyland. The folks running the U Pick farm are the grandchildren of Mr. Boyson. Small world, sweet berries.
Why 10 pounds you ask? Because so far, the jam maker has made cherry – my fav – and apricot jams. Next up, a sweet little blend of raspberry and boysenberry which in our family is called razzledazzle.
Lastly, let me leave you with last night’s sunset from our backyard/pasture.
