A record of my efforts to build a sustainable house and garden in Matsuyama, Japan
Saturday, June 19, 2010
I've had enough of goji bushes and I've torn them out.
If they're not being 'skeletonized' by leaf beetles, a process which leaves them without leaves, they're being 'powderized' by mould which leaves them 'skeletonized'. For something which is supposed to make you live until 108, the life-force seems to be very weak in these plants. I'm tired of seeing their thorny, leafless, flowerless, fruitless boughs hanging all over one corner of my garden. I'm going to plant something useful in their stead.
