Watch out berries here we come!
We picked about 8 pounds of marionberries today. I think the boys also ate another 10 or 15 pounds of berries while we were picking.
Marionberries are a berry that was developed here in Oregon. I looked it up on Wikipedia and it says that it is a cross between the Chehalem and Ollalie (sure) It is named after Marion County, which is the county that our state capitol is in. I am not sure what the other one is. They are very yummy. I already have made three batches of freezer jam.
