I have lived in this house, on this property, for a very long time. The longest I’ve lived anywhere by double.
And I like to think that I’m an observant person because I usually am.
But this totally slipped by me for who knows how long. Until a few days ago.
(Actually, it was Cait who noticed it while home because her two roommates contracted covid. But that’s another story.)
A MULBERRY TREE!! Bearing mulberries. Lots of them!
So, of course, I immediately went to what is the best way to harvest the mulberries. And tah dah!
And this is just the beginning. Mulberries ripen over time, so I will have more than I know what to do with. But that doesn’t worry me. These freeze well and I’m thinking I’ll try making some mulberry wine.
Oh. As for flavor, think somewhere in between a raspberry and a blackberry but mild.
