Mullberries ripe!

Postby RedMist » Thu Jul 04, 2013 10:17 am

Found a young tree in my fencerow while checking my crops. Must be from all the rain, but it is flat loaded with berries. We picked the ripe ones, sweeter than Tupelo honey !!

G'ma made me a pie, absolutely fantastic!!

Us east coasters don't eat those mulberries. Only the birds do. I think they are are different variety here and are sour or inedible.
Looks good though. As far as the Tupelo Honey, I went out with one once. She wasn't too sweet. I think it was the chew. :D

I think there are a bunch of different sub-species....not sure, but ours are sweet as can be. G'ma doesn't even have to put much sugar in the mix, they are that good ! Have a bumper crop this year, way ahead on moisture. Put a trail cam up on the tree last week, got some good deer pics and a few closeups of coons climbing the trunk my cameras on , lol.


Oh, btw, just finished off another pie....Redmist getting sleeeepy .

Maybe it's time to make some wine?

Those berries on the bush look GOOD, but that pie looks devine! I just don't want to look like 'you' do if I ever get around any.

I like the way you think!

Larry, I don't know anything about making wine. The wife does have everything to get started but, I will leave it to her. I do remember my grandmother bottling two cases of mullberry wine once. She had them in her basement until they exploded. Looked like some kind of massacre took place down there!

Apple trees are loaded this year. I may have to put up a bow stand in my back yard!

Had to trap another coon that had been hitting the pear tree. Got some electric fence up too. Would love to get some footage of a fat coon getting zapped while he's trying to crawl over the wire to get at the pears! They haven't bothered the apples too much though. Won't be long before the deer show up..
