sk8eycat I looked for Boysenberries plants from my favorite nurseries. They are:

"out of stock",

"Not currently available",

"Not recommended for your USDA zone", 

"Berries Too soft for shipping",

"Zones: 7-11",

"A good choice for Southern gardens". 

So, my guess is they are grown in southern vinyards and are hard to transport. It seems they are easy to grow in southern gardens and need protection if temperatures get below 10 degrees F. Since I no longer have the energy to grow tender plants, I will stick to my raspberries that I grow myself. 

I did find fresh boysenberries online

Hope you find a source.

We get them here occasionally Felaine. I have found a place that brings them in as well as beautiful large blackberries that actually taste like blackberries.......my favorite. They have all kinds of beautiful fresh fruit in season, so will get some for you & parcel them up to send by virtual imagination......OK?

Been so long since I've tasted Boysenberries that I've forgotten what they taste like.  If I ever get some land, I plan on growing nearly every berry know to humanoids.

Does anybody grow Boysenberries anymore?  I used to see them in smaller grocery stores and the outdoor farmers markets, but not anymore.  I love them more than any other berry, but it's very frustrating to only find processed jams and syrups...does Knott's have a monopoly or something?

Spud,I agree about the Blackberries and Raspberries. But for my taste, Blueberries are just as good. And month from now, Blueberries and Blackberries will be in season. Hurray!

Only 3 things beat the wonderful taste of just-picked ripe-on-the vine Strawberries.  Blackberries, Raspberries, and Huckleberries.  But even so, not by much.

I've seen lots of blossoms on my strawberries for the last week or two, but nothing red so far.

I was surprised to see a ripe strawberry in my patch yesterday. A robin beat me to it, however. I was thinking the season would be late this year, but apparently not. Oh the joy of fresh, not frozen (from 2013) strawberries! Enjoy yours, Pat, and take it easy!

Joan, as I said on my blog post, one of the things I need to learn to do is relax. In terms of the strawberries, I have a wonderful lady in my life who is helping me out. She's tremendous. Even though it's been a week since the 'incident.' and 4 days since the procedure fixing it, she refused to let me carry the strawberries from the market to the car, or let me carry them in the house. She is making sure I take it easy, which I might add, is no small task for her. There's times I think  "You don't need to cluck over me like a mother hen," and then immediately realize, yes she probably does. I had big plans on making jam, until I got a look from her over the top rim of her glasses. Staring at my feet, I mumbled something to the effect of, "Well, maybe not this week," We''ll freeze them and worry about canning later, after a few more follow ups.

Pat, you sound so robust, eager to get to the tasks of living. How are you feeling? I am relieved you are able to do these things, especially since they bring you so much joy. You are a real treasure for me and I think I speak for others as well. Happy strawberry festival of your own creation.
