Earlier this week we packed up and headed out towards Marble Falls to do some berry pickin’ at Sweet Berry Farms.
I’d never been berry picking before and we had just narrowly missed strawberry season. You see, strawberries don’t last long in the Texas heat. But you know what thrives in this ridiculous heat?
Blackberries! They grow wild in the rocky medians. They climb fences. They are often thorny and unstoppable. But they are delicious. So we went to claim a pound of sun ripened sweetness. Don’t tell anyone that we ate as we picked. I mean, that’s what you’re supposed to do, right?
I’m pretty sure Jude enjoyed himself as well.
There’s nothing like a sun warmed blackberry picked right of the vine and popped into your mouth.
This makes me look forward to some peach pickin’ out in Fredericksburg.
P.S. – Thanks to our good friend and current roommate, Christine, for taking pictures!
