UPDATE – – the Goji today


UPDATE – – the Goji today


You may remember the post about my goji plant and olla pot. You don’t? Well, go right here and read all about it. I’ll wait. It’s that important.

Not really, but if you do go there, I won’t go anywhere. I’ll wait for you. And I won’t complain or look for a chair while I wait. Not because I’m a patient person, but I can get this post finished while you read that old one.

I went to the farmer’s market back in June and this guy was selling Goji berry plants. So I bought one. Goji berries are one of the latest nutritional snacks that really famous, chic people eat. Giada reportedly eats Goji berries to keep her energy up for her busy schedule of TV and glamor shots.

This is how my goji looked the day I bought it. No berries, but nice leaves. The oyster shell to the side is covering the opening to my olla.

We’d never heard of them until about ten years ago. Wiki says they’re also called wolfberries. I’ve never heard of wolfberries.

But, I bought one and planted it alongside an olla pot. Then, I forgot about it. There’s been a lot going on the past few months. So, it kind of languished.

It must be a sturdy little bush, because it still produced berries.This is how it looked this morning. No leaves, but berries. Imagine what it would have done, if I’d taken care of it. The olla probably saved it, because I haven’t watered anything in weeks. The red berries are ripe, the dark berries are dried and shriveled.

Men’s Health says they taste like a cross between a cherry and a cranberry. I plucked some from my bush. They taste like stale paper. As opposed to fresh paper that you would use to make spit balls.

I bought some chocolate covered goji berries from, here. For $16.00 a pound. The chocolate tasted good, but I really didn’t taste anything else. Wiki says they have the same amount of vitamin C as most citrus fruits.

See the white thing behind it on the straw? That’s the oyster shell covering the hole of my olla. The olla worked.

The goji? I think I’ll stick with citrus fruits.
