Get to like the things you hate. Mulberries and snakes are very popular these days, and both can be useful if taken in small doses. Snakes are eating all the annoying ground-dwelling bugs and small mammals, so leave them to get on with their business. Mulberries, too, should be embraced. We loved them as kids, but as our palates got more discerning, we realized they taste like mush. If you shake all the ripe ones off the branch and leave them for the snakes to guard, the not-quite-ripe ones are actually slightly tart and tasty.
