We spent the weekend in Oklahoma, attending a wedding and a birthday party. Since we knew that we'd be missing our lovely farmer's market, we decided to run over to the local market in my hometown. Of course, the second we woke up, it started pouring rain. Nobody showed up to the market, so we went a few miles further to a little place called Sun Berry Orchard to pick some blackberries. These were the biggest, sweetest blackberries that either of us have had in years. They also grow some tasty peaches--not quite as good as Lemley's, but they only travelled about 100 feet before we bought them. I highly recommend heading out to your local pick your own. We're hoping to make it out to Balch Springs next weekend for more picking.
