First Berries are here!

For the past few days we've had some small strawberries and today when I took out the trash I noticed there were mulberries on the driveway! The white mulberries are ripe first, and I could see a couple of the purple ones at the very top of a different tree, but there was no way to get to them. In my opinion mulberries are well worth the colored bird poop that will stain our driveway, cars and anything else the birds fly over. I have heard that it is no longer legal to sell fruiting mulberry trees out here (because of the staining and allergies I guess?), but I haven't found anything to support that, however, I don't believe I've seen them at the nurseries, so who knows. Here are a couple of the ripe white mulberries:
