Mulberries are causing me issues at the moment:
1) Age old problem of getting mulberry stains out of kids' clothes. I've tried using glycerine, as advised by Shannon Lush in Spotless. Purple stains reduced to small blue dots on fabric. Sigh.
2) At one of the schools I teach at, there is a big mulberry tree whose branches trail into the playing oval. Unfortunately, this tree belongs to a crochety old man who lets fly with the language at the kids, as they pick his mulberries. It is the thankless task of the teacher on duty (ie. more often than not - me) to keep the kids away from said tree. This turns you into a crochety old woman. Double sigh.
Still, we love our mulberries, although the cool spring weather has meant that they aren't as sweet as normal. I'll stew this lot up with a tablespoon of sugar, and we'll have them to eat with some baked custard tonight after we get home from swimming club night. (That is, if it is on. Talk about rain the last few days!)
Hope you all have fab weekends.
