Mulberry Mania

Last post today! Just wanted to show the Mulberry tree out back that is getting ready to dump untold buckets of fruit on the ground. Every year it is a battle to clean them up; this year I'm going to build a visqueen slide to (hopefully) collect them all. My hope is to produce a) preserves, b) syrup, and c)wine & vinegar for the challenge using this abundant resource.


  1. Hey, let me know if you need help gathering the berries. I would like some to try dehydrating them.

  2. Thanks, the tree pretty much just craps them everywhere. If you'd like to collect some for yourself there is a smaller tree on the other side of the house you can shake the fruit off of. I'd give them another week or so before they are sufficiently ripe.

  3. Alright then, I'll probably stop by next weekend.
