They're good fresh. They're even better in cobbler. I've made a deal with my neighbor's honeybee colony: they make the marionberries, and I'll make the dessert.

My little heart skipped and danced thinking about Things I get to do today that will soon include picking marionberries. These glorious, winged, buzzing sweethearts reminded me that the process was well underway. Big bumble bees of some sort were assisting. Interesting to see how they shared duties: the bumbles worked only the barely-open blossoms, while the honeys liked the extended-petal versions. They've got it covered.
I'll make sure I have my vanilla ice cream recipe chilled for along side the steaming, golden, berry-bubbling dessert. We're inviting guests. Sign up now.
