I found this shop in Mary street today, and I got excited about planting goji berries and blueberries. I have never eaten goji berries before; I heard about them from the hippies at Whole Foods market in Monterey. They tell me goji berries are grown in Tibet and they are full of all sorts of powerful antioxidants. Good enough for me. I'm a big fan of the Tibetan people and culture. In fact, I wish the world would do more to help them get out from under Chinese oppression, but that's another story. My other half says she wants to plant goji berries because she has heard similar good things about them, and since she's a biologist I trust her good judgement.
Blueberries are all kinds of awesome. If you're on a low carb diet, you can't go wrong with these little kisses of sunshine. Who doesn't love blueberries? 20000 bears in Minnesota can't be wrong. (I have it on good authority that the bears in neighbouring Wisconsin prefer Leinenkugel's and brats.) This weekend we are going back into town and I think we're going to pick up some plants for our little garden.
Mr. Middleton's Garden Shop is packed with floor-to-ceiling displays of seed packets. We shall not want for seeds here. The sales girl was very friendly, and I get the impression that she is really a gardener, so three cheers for Mr. Middleton's shop.
