mildred this one is for you. the mulberry is the fruit from the tree that produces the leaves that silkworms eat. at my grandson's school i was the only person with a tree and i had to pick FRESH leaves twice a day for the greedy grubs to munch on .thankfully they have spun their cocoons and no longer need feeding.


meet the mulberry muncher, this chook ain't silly she doesn't stray too far from the tree...

now you don't!
now you see it!
