Fruit of the Land

For years, I've wanted to visit an orchard or farm to pick my own fruit. So this past weekend we took a drive to Marburger Orchard near Fredericksburg, Tx., ... and it was well worth the trek.

If you live in Texas then you're probably aware of the famed Fredericksburg peaches that may be smaller than the ones you find at your local grocery store, but the flavor can't be beat. These definitely didn't disappoint. Later in the week, we enjoyed a fresh peach cobbler ... but I didn't think to take any pictures.

What I wasn't expecting were the beautiful strawberries.

Pick-your-own strawberries

All in all it was a great day trip despite the brutal sun and heat. Next time I'll hopefully plan better and bring along plenty of water and straw hat.
