|Does anyone in warmer climates have a huge white mulberry tree?
Would you be willing to order silkworms and place them on the trees leaves to see if silkworms survive?
I had tried this, but the town cut down the last mulberry tree so I can't continue my experiment.
Supposedly silkworms are unable to survive in the wild, but ones I let go survived for weeks on a mulberry tree so I think scientists need to update their data or try to naturalize them.

|Interesting. I know my cousin who lives on the Jersey shore complains bitterly about the purple mulberry street trees that make a mess of everything. I just planted a white mulberry but it is just a little whip at this point. Keep us informed if you find any volunteers.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
