Moo breakfast this morning:



And outside, my garden is progressing beautifully. I planted a few more things last week, and all are taking well. Had to transplant the Japanese mustard, as it was overshadowing some of the herbs and I was concerned they weren’t getting enough sun. Usually I plan so that I don’t have to bother with transplantation, but since this was a surprise, it was of course by definition unplanned. 😉 Still, I was pretty sad the next day, as it appeared I’d killed it. Luckily Chris suggested that it might just be shocked, and had the possibility of coming back to life—otherwise I’d probably have dug up its carcass and disposed of it. A few days later, it did indeed come back…and once it’s a little nicer looking, I’ll photograph my zombie Japanese mustard for you too. 😉

Here are the photos: as always, click through for larger versions if you’d like. :)
