Fredericksburg

Filed under: Uncategorized — prothro @ 12:07 pm

I love Fredericksburg! Every time we visit I can’t believe I don’t pack up the car and drive there every weekend. Or every day. But then that’s a lot of gas money. So we trek over every few months and we just had to take a trip during peach season.

Fredericksburg soil produces the most delicious peaches in Texas.

There are peach stands dotting the entire 290 Highway but we pulled off at Burg’s Corner and I’m glad we did. As I was perusing their assortment of fresh produce, snapping a few pictures, a man behind the counter approached me and asked if I would like to see an entire truck full of peaches. DUH! OF COUSE I WOULD! So he took me out back to the packaging area and it was such a fun thing to explore the background of peach production.

Did I already say that I love Fredericksburg?

Love.

How did I not have ice cream?

This marks the first time I wanted to eat raw okra.

I wish peaches were shooting down the conveyor belt!

I want to wallpaper a room with these boxes.

A toast to you, Burg's!
