“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.

Garden Checklist for week of July 14

Your garden needs you!

* Keep your vegetable garden watered, mulched and weeded. Water before 8 a.m. to reduce the chance of fungal infection and to conserve moisture.

* Feed vegetable plants bone meal, rock phosphate or other fertilizers high in phosphate to stimulate more blooms and fruiting. (But wait until daily high temperatures drop out of the 100s.)

* Don’t let tomatoes wilt or dry out completely. Give tomatoes a deep watering two to three times a week.

* Harvest vegetables promptly to encourage plants to produce more. Squash especially tends to grow rapidly in hot weather. Keep an eye on zucchini.

* Pinch back chrysanthemums for bushy plants and more flowers in September.

* Remove spent flowers from roses, daylilies and other bloomers as they finish flowering.

* Pinch off blooms from basil so the plant will grow more leaves.

* Cut back lavender after flowering to promote a second bloom.

* It's not too late to add a splash of color. Plant petunias, snapdragons, zinnias and marigolds.

* From seed, plant corn, pumpkins, radishes, winter squash and sunflowers.
