Mulberry Picking

mulberry picking

It’s a serious business.  The little girls, with Grandma, were finding mulberries to feed to Blossy – the wee one with the purple boots.  As it is the very start of the mulberry season, the pickings were slim.

  4. Burstmode, Wildstorm, is it because you don’t have them there? I don’t recall ever seeing them sold in shops here, but many people have a tree in the yard.

    They have the staining capacity of beetroot, and were a source of fun for my siblings and friends growing up. When you have eaten enough, a mulberry fight was always in order to see how spotty you can make your companions. Having a white pony in the paddock only added to the challenge. 🙂

    Nivin, they had a small degree of success. By the end of the season they will have eaten so many that pies and jam will be in order, and even the chooks (whose illustrious house is the background of the picture) will be glutted with them.

  5. Cute picture 🙂
    I’ve never had a mulberry either. Not sure if they grow here in Texas, but I’ve seen mulberry trees in Indiana. At least hubby said they were mulberries.

  6. Michaela, they are flavoursome and sweet, like most berries, but I have to confess that the possibility of eating a grub puts me off a little. The girls are less squeamish in that department.

    There is nothing, n.o.t.h.i.n.g. as delectable as a bowl of juicy fresh mulberries! I loved them as a kid, when we had easy access to a neighbours tree. Haven’t seen many mulberry trees in the last few decades though :S

    I love the photo too, by the way 😀

  8. Thanks for dropping in, sweet friend. Although I miss your blog offerings, I know there are times and seasons…

    Just be sure not to hold out on me if you start another 😉
