January 2020 Bokumono Mobile Events and Newly Translated 4-col Comic | Posted at 01:55 PM 2020 1 03 January 2020

Happy Farm'n Friday and well wishes to you all for a great 2020! Last summer I rescued a lonely plant from the local nursery. The plant called Mona Lavender had a tag that stated it liked partial shade, which would be great for my front porch area. Planted it in a pot and it was super super happy all summer long. The top of the leaves were dark green, but flip the leaf around and it was a lovely purple color. It even started blooming purple trumpet-shaped flowers when fall arrived!

Unfortunately, one November evening brought deep freezing temperatures that killed off all of its pretty blooms and purple leaves. I didn't learn about the cold snap until the next morning, and by then the frost had shredded through the plant's leaves and the damage was done. I brought the lavender plant into the laundry room with the hope that it might perk back up, but weeks went by and nothing happened. So I left the dead-looking plant there on the counter to remind Mr.Fogu that he should of warn me it was going to freeze that night (he knew, but didn't pass on that information, bah).

As I was lamenting my poor dried-up laundry room stick plant the other week, my coworker suggested cutting back its damaged branches to see if that would encourage new growth. Sure enough, this week the plant has new shoots forming from its base. Huzzah, the plectranthus hybrida lives! Now I just need to let the plant do its thing.

Things are still slow in the farm'n world. No news to report regarding the English localization of Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town yet. Last week there was an update for the Ps4 version of Harvest Moon: Mad Dash, though I'd admit I haven't gone back to try to pass Stage 55 since Mr.Fogu gifted me Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield for Christmas. I've also been busy developing bits of the SoS:FoMT guide now that the past two months' worth of holidays are over and I've weekends back to myself. Feels nice to be productive again!
