I remember the fun and excitement of waiting for that perfect day when the Mulberry trees would turn purple. This meant that all the Mulberries were ripe for the picking. I grew up on 5 acres which had a handful of really nice trees that yielded a lot of berries. We often ate as much as we picked.
Where my husband, children, and I live we have a single Mulberry tree that never turns dark purple but stays mostly white with a hint of purple on the berries. We always missed out until a few years ago when I looked at the berries closer and realized all these years the birds and squirrels had been eating our Mulberry treat! We can walk right up to our tree to go Mulberry Picking!
We took our car to get a checkup and the place my parents volunteer to do car repairs is called the Car Barn. Right next to the Car Barn is a line of trees including a Mulberry tree or two. Princess and Big Red excitedly picked as many Mulberries from the ground as they could and then requested a ladder!
Each type of berry seems to ripen at different times in our neck of the woods with strawberries being ripe the beginning of June. Have you taken your child to pick berries this year?
