It’s mulberry time and we have been picking like crazy. Our neighbor has huge tree Mulberry tree and we have more this year then ever! Charlee, Alicia, Tom and myself headed out this morning and filled up our buckets with fresh juicy TO DIE for mulberry’s and then the girls helped me make this mulberry pie that I have to say I am now addicted to.
There are several ways to collect mulberries like pulling directly off the tree and putting them in buckets or you can even throw a tarp down and take a broom and shake the tree. If your feeling particularly lazy lately you can leave a sheet down under it over night and wake up to a sheet full of mulberries! 😉
