Oh, I'm jealous of you finding mulberries in MA. I'm always hopeful local farms will offer them during the summer months, but I only ever find the the trio of strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries (tasty, yes, but variety is nice too)

I was pretty excited about the prospect of pictures of mulberry salad. That looks delicious!

We did a strawberry-toasted pecan-chicken salad thing a couple weeks ago. Maybe there was goat cheese too. It's a dim but very fond food memory.

Mulberries taste incredible, but the fruits are soft and mush easily. That's why you have to forage, or grow your own. If you can grow black raspberries, you can plant a mulberry bush.

I planted one last year, and it's fruiting. Not a lot, but they taste soo good.

One of my co-workers has a huge mulberry bush and she is struggling with harvesting the berries. I've heard you can put some mesh netting down and shake the branches. Any other ideas?

Also, fabulous news about growing mulberry bushes ... I just planted a blackberry bush this year and have actual BERRIES. Perhaps the mulberry will be my next experiment.
