Need some home and garden inspiration? You’ll likely find it this weekend at the Auburn Spring Home Show.

One of the largest shows of its kind in our area, this popular event features scores of vendors and a wide range of seminars. Set for Friday through Sunday, May 19 to 21, the show fills the Gold Country Fairgrounds.

“With hundreds of exhibits from beautiful landscaped vignettes ready to inspire you to exhibitors offering everything for your home and garden needs, to crafty items just ready to take home with you, you are sure to enjoy your show experience,” promise the organizers.

Hungry? This show’s menu is packed, too. “A variety of tasty food items can be found at the International Food Court,” say the organizers. “Temp yourself with mouthwatering garlic fries, fried seafood, addictive tacos, and much more. Smoothies, wine or beer round out your meal.”

Special features include a walk-through display of tiny home and container conversions. See what can be done with not much space or cash.

Got a gardening question or problem? The Placer County master gardeners will be available at their spring gardening-themed booth all three days to help gardeners find answers or solutions.

Kids will be entertained at the Laser Tag building and Critter Corner. See just-hatched baby chicks and adorable (and petable) goats, sheep and more.

Show hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $8; children age 12 and younger are admitted free. Senior Day is Friday with $3 admission. Parking: $6.

Gold Country Fairgrounds is located at 209 Fairgate Road, Auburn.

Dig In: Garden Checklist

For week of Feb. 18:

It's wet to start the week. When you do get outside, between or after storms, concentrate on damage control:

* Keep storm drains and gutters clear of debris.

* Clean up tree debris knocked down by wind and rain.

* Where did the water flow in your garden? Make notes where revisions are necessary.

* Are any trees leaning? See disturbances in the ground or lawn around their base? Time to call an arborist before the tree topples.

* Dump excess water out of pots.

* Indoors, start peppers, tomatoes and eggplant from seed.

* Lettuce and other greens also can be started indoors from seed.

* Got bare-root plants? Put their roots in a bucket of water until outdoor soil dries out. Or pot them up in 1- or 5-gallon containers. In April, transplant the plant, rootball and all, into the garden.

* Browse garden websites and catalogs. It’s not too late to order for spring and summer.

* Show your indoor plants some love. Dust leaves and mist to refresh.
