    Neighbor is supposed to be coming home sunday. I'll water all the plants that morning so she doesn't feel the need to immediately do that. Some are doing great. Some need some love. But none are dead, which I hope will make her happy. I've also noticed that her license plate light is falling off her car (early 2000's scion) so I've tried to find a replacement part on Rockauto.com but they don't seem to have it or at least I can't figure out what it's called, so I'll swing by autozone tomorrow and see if they can help at least with what it might be called, if not sell me the part itself. Plants aren't really in my wheelhouse but minor car repairs totally are so hopefully I can fix this for her.

    Thanks for the update, jp1. Glad she will be coming home soon. And that is so sweet of you to be taking care of all these things for her!!

    Aside from wanting to help her out she’s a sweetheart so I don’t mind doing all this. And I’ve confirmed that any sort of large scale gardening is not likely to be one my retirement projects. I just don’t particularly enjoy doing it. Even with an established garden like hers I just don’t particularly enjoy it. Although we HAVE been enjoying her tomatoes! They are amazing.
