Neither I nor Moon have the greenest of thumbs. For some reason though she’s on a gardening kick. She has finally given up on planting outside since that involves too much sunlight and not enough air conditioning. Now she’s got herself an indoor setup with lights on timers to keep her herbs growing fresh. They look green, so that’s good. We still haven’t used any of these herbs yet for actual cooking, although I assume that is eventually the plan. If this website suddenly stops being updated, I think it’s a safe assumption that we both died from herb poisoning.
For those of you practicing your yojijyukugo, this one is read nishin gepo. It contains the characters for both moon and sun, which gives the impression of this “steady progress” taking place over a long period of time.
