Red Mulberry Growlog #3

Red Mulberry 2020/11/23 (Date: 2021-03-19)

Into the over world from the underworld! The mulberries were grown in the basement for the majority of their existence and now are able to live in the outside for the first time. In this grow journal I’ll write about my experience bring the red mulberries into the outside and growing them over summer.

This is the third post, you can see the newer posts (or older posts) via these posts:

Winter Strikes Back

Disaster strikes! The mulberries were taken outside a little too early as winter strikes back and covers them with snow for a few days. I wasn’t able to do anything but helpless watch.

The Return of Spring

Thankfully the mulberries recovered and began to thrive. Here we have a dragonfly stopped by for a rest.
