Here we go ’round the mulberry bush in search of usable berries

  Here we go ’round the mulberry bush in search of usable berries Like many of our readers, I’ve spent a lot of time at home this summer. So much so that I’ve had to invent ways to entertain myself while looking at the same house and backyard for four months and counting. We constructed a sizable vegetable patch, planted flowers and shrubs, reseeded bare grass patches, and bought kiddie pools and sprinklers and water balloons. In a moment of weakness, we even bought our son a pedal-operated mini forklift. He carries the watering can on it, which is both charming and lazy. © Photo: A.E.
