CQ,You picture tell it all, no hiding the evidence :-)
Do you make jam from your mulberries? I thought about doing it this year, but the ticks and chiggers are so bad, I hate to venture out in the woods to get them.
Fortunately my trees are in my yard where we mow at along an old fence line. When I was a kid my mothers way of picking them was to put an old shett below them and then shake the branches and the ripe ones would fall on the sheets to be picked up. I have made mulberry jam for my mother before she passed away. She loved it and had fond childhood memories of a giant mulberry tree in my grandparents yard. Since my mother passed I usually just let the grandchildren and birds have them because I usually have plenty of fruit. The mulberries ripe I do truly believe help keep the birds out of my strawberry patch.
Me & you too Hank! Yum! I love mulberries.. One year I made a mix of mulberries & dewberries and called it Muldew Jelly.. it was the BEST I ever ate.. then or since. My daughter showed me she had a mulberry tree in her yard last week & my hand looked just like Hanks.. My daughter thought I was hilarious gobbling up all those berries.. ;)
