Oh, good! I have a "volunteer" mulberry tree growing near my other berries...maybe that'll help. I made mulberry jam last year; it was great. We also liked the mulberries sprinkled with sugar.
I never got any cherries on my tree; it died almost as soon as I planted it. My husband found out from the extension office that the variety I bought was one of the most difficult to grow, and, in fact, they told him that cherries are difficult in general. I'd never tried them before, so I had no idea.
I always wondered if a smart bird couldn't figure out how to rip a hole in the netting or find another way in, anyway...we have some blue jays around here who could get into Mensa! I remember seeing people tie aluminum pie pans in trees to scare birds away...I think it's the clanging noise they make when the wind blows. I don't know how well it works, though.
