"Oh," I said, "I love berries too!" "Well come on," she said, "Let's go get some now." Off we went to the back yard where we all stood under her mulberry tree picking the berries and popping them in our mouths.
Later, my neighbor insisted that we go over and pick more mulberries while they were away for the weekend. We did just that and came home with about 4 cups:
We turned the berries into lemon-mulberry muffins and gave some to our neighbors:
But, we came home with plenty of berries for dessert:
We did walk down to the woods to check the progress of the black rasberries. They are beginning to ripen! Just the first berry on each stalk, but enough to remind ourselves how WONDERFUL black rasberries really are!
Someone else knows about the black rasberries though. The grass was all trampled in front of each berry spot. I couldn't figure out if it was done by people, or maybe deer. Anyway, I suppose I do need to share. :)
