“It’s a Go!” That’s the message on the Auburn Home Show home page, adding, “meeting safety requirements and guidelines.”

So, bring a face mask and remember to social distance, but otherwise enjoy products and ideas from hundreds of vendors at the annual Auburn Fall Home Show, underway today through Sunday, Sept. 24-26, at the Gold Country Fairgrounds.

“Safety requirements are in place that meet safety guidelines," say the show's organizers on the website. "We are fortunate to have a facility that can more easily accommodate the guidelines with plenty of outdoor displays and multiple buildings that allow for ample socially distancing. With the experience of producing two events under COVID restrictions, management is experienced and prepared to welcome guests to the Home Show.”

It may be only the first week of fall, but this home show will focus on the holidays: Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Special exhibits and demonstrations will be keyed to each holiday including a “Spooktacular” walk-through Halloween display, Thanksgiving-themed cooking demonstrations on Saturday and Christmas cooking ideas on Sunday.

Dig In: Garden Checklist

For week of Sept. 24:

This week our weather will be just right for fall gardening. What are you waiting for?

* Now is the time to plant for fall. The warm soil will get these veggies off to a fast start.

* Keep harvesting tomatoes, peppers, squash, melons and eggplant. Tomatoes may ripen faster off the vine and sitting on the kitchen counter.

* 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.

* Fertilize deciduous fruit trees.

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

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

* 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. That includes bearded iris; if they haven’t bloomed in three years, it’s time to dig them up and divide their rhizomes.

* 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.

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