I have found the potential eater of tomato blossoms. A slug hidden under a flap of the container cover. With emphatic cries of, "DIE SLUG! DIE!" it is safely chopped to death with a garden spade.

Pine and Grant downtown seems to be a rather hip lunch strip. I keep getting distracted by the numerous lunch box and rice bowl options being advertised by chalkboards up and down the pavement. I've only ever headed there for Ramen Underground, which today featured distractingly slow and forgetful service. The ramen is good though. Very rich meaty broth, excellently bitey noodles. Their extra soy soft-boiled egg topping is always good, and I am quite fond of their buttered corn. Today, I had the soy milk noodles. I would have preferred it heavier on the soy milk, but it was still very soothing and warming on such a cold day. At some visit in the future, I may actually have the room for their green tea tiramisu. Maybe, just their tiramisu?

Next door is a rice ball store called Onigilly. My eyes went slightly big, like teacup saucers. I don't know how I missed it the last time I was in the area. Unfortunately, it was closed by the time I got out of my unusually slow ramen lunch. I had kind of promised the spouse we would have onigiri breakfast. They have pollock roe onigiri, which means I need to visit next time I'm in the area, since I quite like pollock roe, and it's not the most common thing to find in onigiri round here. Also, snow crab. Also, also, sprouted brown rice. Sigh.

Tomorrow, hopefully, I will have enough spare time on hand to chop things down in the garden, as it is getting quite deep into fall, and stuff that needs trimming is already beginning to flower. Dorian will quite enjoy that, I think. He likes my company when in the yard. We get lots of visiting cats he might need protecting from, or perhaps he thinks I need protecting from. A local hooting main coon has of late been quite keen to move in with us, which Dorian will have none of. Hooting Cat was willing to sniff my hand earlier this evening, but started biting when I tried to pet him. He's so fuzzy. Perhaps, he has a nice home somewhere with warm people. He doesn't look terribly ill fed. I have neither the food nor litter boxes for a third cat, as lovely as more fuzziness would be.

I've been trying my hand at collecting seeds from my shiso plants this weekend. I have a weird OCD urge to collect them all. (well, not really all of them... I need some to reseed for next year.)

I am still so very tempted to plant the seeds you sent me. Can't wait for spring! I wonder if shiso seeds would make a nice topping for something? Crunchy and a little spicy perhaps?
