It’s mulberry season down here in South Florida. The bushes behind the house are covered with berries in every stage of development, from green to ripening red, to dark blue-black, to falling on the ground to be eaten by possums.
Mulberries are messy
They’re a pain to pick, too. They fall off the branch so easily, that while you’re grabbing one, a gentle brush will cause three more to fall on the ground.
