I think I finally know why those workers were so full of energy that even after all their chores that they felt like spinning around the mulberry bushes! They were eating the mulberries for energy!


It was time to go grocery shopping so I had run out of food. Desperate, I snacked on some mulberries I had bought awhile and since forgotten about because I didn't like them. I have to say, they are growing on me! At first I didn't like them, but the more I eat them the better they taste. I find that a lot with raw food-so if you don't like something immediately, try it again a few times before you give up on it! I really can't even describe them other than they are sweet, but not too sweet. They taste like potpourri. lol I guess you just have to try them yourself to really understand. I can assure they are not like anything you have tried before though. They even have a weird texture that is hard to explain!
