When I was a little kid of about two or three I had a mulberry tree in backyard. Picking the berries from that tree is one of my fondest memories. Now I think a house isn't complete until it has a mulberry tree in the yard. My current house doesn't have any yet, but I now have a source for one.
These mulberry trees are the kind of thing I was talking about when I said I'd look for interesting things on the nature trails. I know mulberries are maybe not as important for many of you, but they are extremely important to me. They bring back my early childhood for me.
Mulberries may not be the best berries in the world, but they are really tasty. I've often wondered why they don't sell them in the stores like other berries. I'm sure there's a reason. If you've never eaten one then you should look for them. My picture shows them in various stages of ripeness. The darker the better.
I better cut it off right here for now or I'll ramble on about mulberries forever. I'll talk to you later.
