ne day the week before Christmas, my wife was going through the mail and noted the arrival of the first garden seed catalogue. A couple days later, another arrived. Undoubtedly, these went to gardeners throughout the country, and while the garden season is still far away for residents of northern climates, Floridians should be placing orders in the next few weeks if seeds are to arrive in time for vegetable gardens to be planted about March 1. It is time for some family discussion about what to plant in the garden this year and also some thought about the garden layout. It is important to rotate crops so they are not in the same spot as last year. I have found it helpful to make a list of items I hope to get done on my farm in the coming year, including the landscape and vegetable gardens. The lists make an interesting collection for review and are useful to help recall when trees, hedges and ornamental shrubs were planted. These lists also help budget for items to be purchased, and they allow one to focus on sections of the landscape that need attention. A list of this nature results in a planned landscape and helps prevent spot purchases of plants that don’t fit landscape goals. Time is another factor in all this planning, and a list of priorities not only assists with budgeting monetary resources, but also time allocations for projects that encompass more than a day or two. After you have managed your property for several years, you probably will find recurring activities that always occur at

HOLMES: Annual color a piece of the puzzle that requires some planning Continued from 4H

certain times of the year. For example, I always try to plant my spring vegetable garden the first weekend in March. In order to prepare for this, I know the soil should be tilled the third Saturday in February. Potatoes usually are planted on the Martin Luther King holiday, and hedges are pruned Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. A routine like this will make your annual calendar more manageable, and will ensure things get done and that they get done at the right time. There are, of course, exceptions to planning, and this includes planned purchases. A few years ago, in the middle of the year, my wife purchased a

Yellow Jasmine vine at one of the Master Gardener plant sales. It was a good, quality plant at a good price, and the plant was on the University of Florida’s recommended list of vines. It would be a good addition to our garden. When we arrived home, she wanted to know where we would plant it. Since this vine needs a trellis and we didn’t have one, the question really was not where the vine would be planted, but when we were going to get a trellis. It wasn’t on the wish list for that year, and so we purchased a small, inexpensive trellis. Without this vine purchase, I probably wouldn’t have thought about a trellis, but in the years since, it has become

a nice addition to our landscape. Annual color is another piece of the landscape puzzle that requires some planning. Last fall, I was in a local nursery and admired the colorful pansies that were on display. Thinking about how well they perform in cool weather, I spoke to the nursery owner about them. He told me they were already sold to a local landscape contractor. An Apopka nursery placed a special order, and the plants were being held until the owner could pick them up. “By the way,” he said, “this Apopka nursery has a new pansy color selection you’ll find interesting — orange and blue. You might think about getting some for

the office.” It is my opinion that only a few annuals, planted en masse, make an affordable, yet colorful statement for the landscape. It is important to locate these in just the right spot for visibility and full enjoyment. Over the course of the year, it probably will be necessary to change these out two or three times, so they become another part of your annual planning list. The Extension Service has an old, but very good, publication on annuals — CIR569 — that will be useful in your planning. Of particular interest is the chart indicating planting and removal dates — a perfect item for your landscape-planning calendar. Call the Extension

Service at 671-8400 if you would like to receive a copy. In this season of reflection and planning, creating a list for your landscape and gardening efforts will help budget your time and money while giving you a schedule for getting things done. When it comes time to welcome in 2014, you’ll be able to pause and reflect over your list and take satisfaction in all you got done in a productive 2013, and you will have a foundation for planning your landscaping hobby for next year.

STYLE AT HOME

New Year’s resolutions to freshen your decor Scripps Howard News Service

love making New Year’s resolutions, and here are a few from me and my decorating team that you might want to adopt to make your home even more lovely in 2013. (Thankfully, none of them involves dieting!) DO SOMETHING WONDERFUL WITH WINDOWS: For years, I was convinced that shutters were the only kind of window treatments that would work in my living room. But I revisited the idea of drapes, thinking they could be my ticket to fabric paradise. I am so glad I did, because I was completely wrong — my windows look lovely framed by simple fabric panels. Next on my list: Updating the tired drapes in my bedroom. I prefer subtle colors in my bedroom, perhaps because by the end of the day my overcharged brain needs a chance to chill out. The camel-and-cream animal print I used for my drapes is the perfect blend of edgy and serene. RETHINK YOUR DECOR WHEN THE DECORATIONS COME DOWN: My home always seems so bare right after I take down holiday decorations. But it’s the perfect time to look at your decor with fresh, new eyes and make some much-needed changes. First, take a critical look at everything in your home.

Always clean faucet finishes with care Scripps Howard News Service

I’m trying to get the corrosion off my older bathtub mixing valve and sink faucet. I have tried using strong cleaners, without success. Also, some spots on the handles appear to have a gold color coming through the chrome plating. No matter how hard I scrub, it does not look clean. Can you please help? What can I try next? — Lee, Ohio I’m sorry, Lee, but it sounds as if harsh cleaning over the years might have taken a toll on your faucets — or if they’re really old, the finish might just be wearing off. Either way, to solve this problem you may need to find new handles that match your present fixtures, or you can change out the entire faucet and/or tub valve to start new. The good news is that today’s faucet finishes are very durable. But you should always clean them with care. Use non-abra-

sive mild cleaners, rinse them thoroughly with a soft, damp cloth and blot them dry. Keeping the faucet as dry as possible is important, especially if you have hard water. Finally, only clean the faucet if it is dirty. Constantly polishing a clean faucet or tub valve might make it sparkle for a while, but sooner or later you may lose your luster!

SCRIPPS HOWARD NEWS SERVICE

Moving your furniture from room to room will give you a different look without spending extra money. pinpoint items you are not using or no longer love, donate them to a charitable organization so they can bring joy to someone else. Once you’ve done a good, thorough cleaning-out, take a second look at your furniture placement. Does the flow of each room work? Are all the furnishings to scale? If not, try moving pieces from room to room, using them in new places and in new ways. HANG SOME BEAUTIFUL ART: Take a look at the walls of your home. Are they filled with artwork that makes your heart sing? Far too often, customers tell us they don’t hang art in their homes because they are afraid they won’t buy the “right” artwork or hang it “correctly.” Toss that one out the window, because in my book, the only “right” artwork is the kind that makes your heart skip a beat. And the only “correct” way to hang it is the way that pleases you.

Can it get any better than that? ADD THEATRICAL LIGHTING: “All the world’s a stage, so you need to light it well,” says Bruce, our resident actor and singer. Bruce uses three creative techniques to create dramatic lighting in a home. The first is “framing,” placing a pair of matched lamps on either side of a killer display. Try it on your buffet or mantel this year. You’ll be surprised by how the lamps spotlight the tableau. The second is “illuminating,” using lovely lamps to provide the light you need to perform a task, like reading. And the last is “highlighting,” using a small accent lamp to call attention to something special to you. To pull this off, pick out some objects of great sentimental value, like snapshots of loved ones, a treasure from vacation or a family

heirloom. Then, put them on a side table under the downward light of an accent lamp. FRESHEN ACCENT PILLOWS: The secret to being a pillow princess is to fill the pillows with high-quality down inserts. Get rid on any old poly forms you may have in your accent pillows and replace them with down pillow forms. When you do, you will be amazed by how sink-intosoft your pillows look. Instead of the stiff, uninviting look you get with poly form pillows, those stuffed with down inserts are plump and full and indulgent. Unlike poly forms, down forms don’t lose their shape. Just plump them and they are perfect again. Mary Carol Garrity is the founder of Nell Hill’s, a home décor store in Atchison, Kan. She can be reached at marycarol@ nellhills.com.

THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

Actress Jenna Fischer has purchased the Casey Stengel estate in Glendale, Calif., for $1.9 million. living room with a barrel ceiling, two sitting rooms, five bedrooms and five bathrooms. There is a separate maid’s quarters off the garage.

Fischer, 38, has played receptionist Pam Beesly on the sitcom since 2005. She will star in the film “Kiss Me,” due out next year. Stengel was a Major

League Baseball outfielder who went on to manage the Brooklyn Dodgers, the Boston Braves, the New York Yankees and the New York Mets before retiring in 1965. The Baseball Hall of Famer lived at the Glendale house until his death in 1975 at 85. The property came on the market in June at $2.41 million. ■■■

Former pro basketball star and coach Elgin Baylor and his wife, Elaine, have put their

Beverly Crest area estate on the market at $4.25 million. The contemporary Mediterranean-style home, built in 1981, is sited on nearly an acre to take advantage of canyon and city views. Features include a 1,600-square-foot great room that could function as a home theater or game room. There are multiple decks, six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and more than 8,000 square feet of living space. Baylor, 78, was a small

forward with the Minneapolis/Los Angeles Lakers from 1958 to 1971. The Hall of Famer went on to coach the New Orleans Jazz and was general manager for the Los Angeles Clippers for more than 20 years. The Baylors paid $1,445,249 for the property in 1992, public records show. They raised their family in the home and would now like a smaller place in the area.

HELLO! I am thrilled, but most importantly honored, to be selected to serve as the 2013 President of the Ocala Marion County Association of REALTORS®. The future of real estate for 2013 in our local market looks very promising for both sellers and buyers. Why? We are seeing improvements in local job market, interest rates are at historically low rates, and Marion County leads the state in affordability of housing. However, the strength of the housing market is based entirely on improving core fundamentals: continuing economic growth (at reasonable rate), improving job growth (with jobs will come more housing starts), improving consumer confidence as home prices strengthen and in turn the growth in the number of new households. Rental demand looks to increase in 2013 with an estimated 5 to 6 million new rental households created in the next 10 years, mainly caused by lenders tight credit standards and low housing inventory. With apartment rents increasing to its highest levels since 2007 in most areas of the country, it is often much cheaper to buy a home, than to rent but not always a viable solution.

The 7/23 loan has the same rate for the first 7 years and then adjusts to the rate that will be in effect for the remainig 23 years. BALLOON—A mortgage that has level monthly payments that will fully amortize it over a stated term (e.g. 30 years) but which provides for a lump-sum payment to be due at the end of an earlier specified term (e.g. 10 years).

HOME MAINTENANCE

Open crawlspace vents keep winter homes healthier Scripps Howard News Service

You have often said that crawlspace vents need to be opened in the winter. Why is that? I always thought they should be closed to keep my water pipes from freezing. I used to think the same thing, but the energy crisis of the 1970s led to a lot of research on how to maintain homes to conserve energy. Over time, it was discovered that making a home substantially airtight also would trap moisture and other gases inside the living environment. Warm moisture-laden air or humid air naturally travels

Q:

A:

DWIGHT BARNETT

from the warmer areas outside the home to cooler areas inside the home, where it can condensate back into

water. Inside the living areas of our homes, we control the flow of moisture using fans, air conditioners and dehumidifiers. Otherwise, a tightly sealed home could become a garden for mold spores. We also need to control the levels of humidity in the crawlspace, where

water vapors can saturate the wood floor system, which then can lead to wood rot, mold growth, decay and structural damage. Many of the crawlspaces I’ve inspected have elevated-humidity problems. To control the humidity, you open the crawl vents in the winter to allow the warm moist air to flow naturally to the cooler dryer outside environment. In the summer, you close the vents to keep the warm moist air outside and away from the much cooler dryer air in the crawlspace. However, if you have a

water line near one of the crawlspace vents, that vent should be permanently sealed and insulated to prevent freeze damage to the water line. In addition to preparing the crawlspace for winter, you should also: ■ Remove garden hoses from water faucets. A modern anti-freeze faucet can be damaged if the hose is left in place all winter. If the faucet has an inside shut-off valve, close it until spring. ■ Check to see if you have a kitchen or bathroom sink with plumbing on or next to an outside wall; the pipes could freeze. To protect the water pipes,

Real Estate

leave the cabinet doors open or let the water trickle slowly during the night. Placing a 60-watt lamp on the floor just outside the cabinet doors also can provide enough additional heat to prevent freezing. Never place a light fixture inside the cabinet. ■ Insulate the water lines in the crawlspace or basement. Insulation conserves hot water while you are using it and prevents condensation from forming on the cold water pipes in the summer. ■ Locate the main water shut-off valve and make sure it is operable. Most older valves are difficult to

close and many will leak when you do turn them off. A minor repair now could save you from an expensive repair later if you are unable to turn the water off in an emergency. ■ In mobile homes, electric heat tape may be necessary to prevent freezing of the exposed water pipes.
