Never heard of goji berries until I looked-it-up on Wiki.  The article looked familiar.  Have you mentioned them before?

But that reminds me: When I thought a huge amount of vitamin C was good for my health, I tried growing a hedge of roses that had huge rose hips, but none of them survived.  I wonder how many millions of years it would take to get good at gardening.

Joan, I found one small ripe strawberry this morning.  Did I beat you?  Have you found any ripe ones yet?

Does anybody have any experience with growing goji berries? I hear they're super beneficial for one's health.

Randall, you are so right! A real challenge, especially if you add in pests and diseases. That is part of the hurdle, being smarter than all the other elements that make gardening difficult. A good gardener has so many qualities, vision, dreams, hopes, ambition, knowledge, skills, patience, appreciation of nature and all its elements. So, off I go to the garden, bed unmade, kitchen piled with dirty dishes, floors needing attention and those garden challenges take priority! Not complaining, just describing.

Barbara that's all true. and it's all part of nature.

Nope "it's not easy"!

However, when you taste the first veggie you've just dug out of the ground and cleaned off on your jeans while standing in your garden, or you've just taken a picture of your first flower to bloom, or you are simply standing and smelling the earth that produced this wonder you realize it is worth every expense, every sore muscle, every invasive bug/animal, and every disappointment to bring you to this wonderful moment.

Moles, voles, rabbits, deer, digging dogs (and Bengal cats!)--in the words of the late Paul Lynde, "You think it's easy?" (to be a gardner).

Dynamite I like maybe it will get rid of the stupid neibores also they already don't like the guns and fireworks

Have you thought about an electric fence to keep the deer out? It works well here.
