We harvested marionberries, raspberries, and blueberries in our food forest for the past several weeks. We love growing lots of berries. There are few things better than vine-ripened fresh berries.
We grow our marionberries on a simple trellis in order to maximize fruit production and simplify the harvest process. When the marionberries are managed on a wire the ripe berries hang down and are easily viewable. We save the pint boxes that we get throughout the year from buying berries at local farmer markets and enjoy filling them back up with our own homegrown fruit from our backyard food forest.
