Boy, are those little berries delicious! They look like small blackberries but have their own distinct flavor. You harvest them by laying old bedsheets or something similar on the ground and shaking the tree. Now the mulberry tree is about 20' tall - so Mark climbed the tree and shook it. He can do anything! Check out the picture carefully and you'll see Mark in the tree.
Check out the resulting jam. YUM! The perfect jam for fresh out of the oven bread. And, my first mulberry pie.
Check out the Dots running to check out the mulberry harvest. Once we pulled up the blankets, they discovered all the mulberries that had dropped to the ground on their own - it was a treat for them too.
Wish you were here to enjoy the fruits of our labor! If you do make it, I'll just pull a pie from the freezer and a jar of jam from the shelf to enjoy on fresh bread. I'll leave you with that thought....
