Well isn’t this a fine how do you do!
After all the love I’ve shown the Mulberry the past few years… this is what I get.
Look closely….you MAY see a berry…or two…..
And here we were — all dressed, jars in hand….ready to make good use out of every juicy one.
Our Mulberry trees that have ALWAYS produced more berries than one knows what to do with are holding out this year.
A bit bummed about the situation, to be honest…but that’s nature for you.
I’m thinking the weird winter (or lack there of) and one late frost may be the culprits. There are lots of dried up leaves scattered about the Mulberry branches – may be an indicator of something else that’s going on?
Even our raspberries pale in comparison to last year — and just a few weeks back it looked as though it was going to be a bumper crop…ah, not so much.
Maybe they’re on a year, off a year?
Oh well, it takes a bad year to appreciate the good ones, right……we’ve at least had a few sweet berries to enjoy, which is better than none at all!
Anyone else having a berry bad year?
No cheers to the berries today….ha.
