Unfortunately, the hot weather we had last week has made the mulberries a bit dry and miserable-looking. I am hoping for a lovely cobbler tonight, though.
But there are enough mulberries for more than just a cobbler, so I decided to look up more recipes. I found a great website called Mulberry Madness. It has some interesting recipes to try, for sure. Tonight, though, it's cobbler.
Meanwhile, I am in the middle of a laundry dilemma. My dryer is not functioning, so I have been hanging out the clothes. Unfortunately, half of my clothesline is under the mulberry tree, so I have to be very careful where I hang the clothes, both because of the staining properties of the berries, and the droppings of the birds who love to eat same.
While hanging out the clothes this morning, I noticed the tell-tale signs of a visiting paper wasp:
Yes, wasps are eating my clothespins. I must be very careful to avoid the painful sting of these inhabitants of my back yard. I'm not allergic, but I don't like to be stung--laundry is a dangerous business!
