Another sign of normalcy: The original Sacramento Home & Garden Show returns to Cal Expo.

Friday through Sunday, the granddaddy of local home shows will fill three buildings at the State Fair grounds with the latest in home and garden ideas.

This will be the organizers’ 41st Spring Sacramento show. After so many home shows and fairs were canceled by the pandemic, vendors are excited to greet potential customers back to browse their products and services.

“Meet and learn from top local experts in a casual, comfortable, no-pressure environment,” say the organizers. “You’ll see the newest in landscaping, gardening, patios, fencing, decks, heating and air, solar, insulation, remodeling, new construction, plumbing, kitchens, baths, closets, home furnishings, appliances, lighting, roofing, painting, gutters, home security, windows, doors, siding, tile, stone, granite, BBQs, pools, spas and more.”

That’s quite a list! Vendors will be spread out, so there will be room for social distancing. Several vendors will be set up outdoors. In line with relaxed mandates, face masks will be optional.

Show hours are noon to 6 p.m. Friday, March 4; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 5; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 6.

Admission is $7; seniors, $4. Parking: $10. Cal Expo is located at 1600 Exposition Blvd., Sacramento.

Advance tickets and more details are available online at www.sachomeandgardenshow.com.

Dig In: Garden checklist for week of Sept. 25

This week's warm break will revive summer crops such as peppers and tomatoes that may still be trying to produce fruit. Pumpkins and winter squash will add weight rapidly.

Be on the lookout for powdery mildew and other fungal diseases that may be enjoying this combination of warm air and moist soil.

* Late September is ideal for sowing a new lawn or re-seeding bare spots.

* Compost annuals and vegetable crops that have finished producing.

* Cultivate and add compost to the soil to replenish its nutrients for fall and winter vegetables and flowers.

* Plant for fall now. The warm soil will get cool-season veggies and flowers off to a fast start.

* Plant onions, lettuce, peas, radishes, turnips, beets, carrots, bok choy, spinach and potatoes directly into the vegetable beds.

* Transplant lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower.

* Sow seeds of California poppies, clarkia and African daisies.

* Transplant cool-weather annuals such as pansies, violas, fairy primroses, calendulas, stocks and snapdragons.

* Divide and replant bulbs, rhizomes and perennials.

* Dig up and divide daylilies as they complete their bloom cycle.

* Divide and transplant peonies that have become overcrowded. Replant with "eyes" about an inch below the soil surface.
