I was a bit disappointed we've missed getting mulberries two years in a row, now. I like having something seasonal to look forward to gathering every year- dandelion root and leaf in spring, mulberries in early summer and now possibly hickory nuts in the fall. I never thought I'd be a forager, but I really do enjoy the satisfaction of it. It's completely fresh, local and free. All it cost me is time and some hands-on work, and my kids love doing it with me.
