Harvest Shot, Large Garden N Grove CSA Box May 14-15th, 2014
The wind and fires out here are consuming are attention. Once again, just as we were scheduled to harvest our mulberries, they were blown to the ground.Unlike blackberries, mulberries fall off in your hand when they're ready to pick. That makes picking easy, but accidentally knocking off dozens of berries while reaching for that just-of-of-reach-really- big one..also easy. So when the winds pick up, it's over. Mulberry mulch for the whole grove. :/ This may be why mulberries haven't become mainstream yet.
