OH! What do you do with all your fruit? My mulberry fruit never makes it to my table —birds. But I LOVE mulberries! (Ours is black)
We have two black and one white, but there are many many wild trees around here, so you’ll see the fruit squashed all over the roads even in early summer 🙂
Most folk plant a couple of trees as sun shades for the house, as a decent aged tree will grow up to four metres each season, mostly straight branches too. In early winter, the new branches are removed, leaving almost a stub of a tree, and they are then used as bean poles, light fence posts or even for making field gates.
As for our fruit, most is scoffed by the chickens – it’s a daily race! The only trouble is that with these young trees, the fat chıooks break the flippin’ branches too 🙂
