IMG_3454.JPG This unusual tree is a real treat to have on the farm. Member Amy was our bookkeeper for a long time and she suggested we grow Mulberries. I bought ten trees about ten years ago. They have had a few fruit on then for some years but the birds have always had their fill before we got a chance. This year I believe we may have a fighting chance to enjoy a few. They are far too fragile to put in your boxes, they often squish as you pick them. They are definitely an eat in the field fruit. The leaves of these trees are fed to silk worms to make silk. I have been to a silk mill in England but never seen one here. It is an amazing process.
