On the MN prairie.
Introduce your aunt to Uber or Lyft. It is cheaper than owning a car for intermittent use. Sell the car and that will fund a year or more of rides.
My aunt passed away 5 years ago - 17 days after she moved to assisted living. Not sure she would have been able at that point to figure out Uber or Lyft, but that’s a great idea! I hope someone else can do that. Those aren’t available where I live, so it would never have occurred to me.

Be proud of her, the doctor had to threaten to have my dad's license revoked if he continued to drive and he still walks around with the keys in his pocket. He still tries to find reason he has to drive and recently mom discovered him getting ready to drive somewhere when she came back from a quick trip to the store.
It's hard to give up one's independence!!

Don't work too hard.
Hard thing to do when you are running your own business.

Anyway, I moved my pepper plants outside too. They’re not getting very much sun where they are in the house so I figured I’d move them outside. Probably a bit cold for them but they’re in the direct sun so very warm and I’ll move them back in later. Hopefully it helps them cause they’re not doing the best. Producing new leaves but also losing a lot of leaves so :confused:
Too early I think!!! Shouldn't be putting them outside during the day to "harden off" until a week or so before they go in the ground and that is a LONG time from now!!

Maybe I should just move them to a sunnier spot in the room rather fully outside??
Yep! They might also need a bit of fertilizer.

Thanks! That’s a good point!! I wasn’t really trying to harden them off per se but rather thought the sun might do them good haha but from now on I’ll just move them to a sunnier spot and I’ll also try adding some fertilizer. I think we might still have some from last year.

Here are some pictures of the plants. Okay, a lot of pictures. :lau :oops: I’ll put it in a spoiler because of that. But I tried to get pictures of a bunch of the leaves. A lot have either weird burn marks on the edges or holes or dark spots and some have really weird spotting/coloring on them. And I think you can somewhat see what I meant earlier when I said one used to be bushy. You can see all the old branches and how bare it is now. :hit Granted some of the leaves I’ve pulled off but still.

I've never tried to overwinter a pepper plant. I once tried with the basil plant but it died.
Yeah, I never have either but I read that peppers were technically perennials so I wanted to try it. I usually just let them die but figured since they were potted anyway, I’d give it a go. I did let all the inground ones die. Didn’t feel like digging them up. :lau plus they were tiny anyway.

I have never had much success with herbs. :(
