The mulberries from our big mulberry tree out back were not as plentiful this year. We were in the beginnings of a 2+ month long drought, and I'm pretty sure that was the biggest reason for the lack of berries. What berries did survive were smaller and less juicy than last year, and the birds were desperate to get at them. One afternoon in late May, however, we were able to glean a small harvest of berries and we sat down for a quick snack! YUM! Yay for foraging in your own backyard!
