ASK WENDY A delicious red beet is hard to beat now a good time to grow Q:Isbeets? I want to put them in

my fall garden. Yes, now is the perfect time to plant those delicious red globes in your garden. The “UF/ IFAS Extension Vegetable Gardening Guide” recommends planting beets from September through March.This allows enough time to have a couple of crops this fall, and one more in the spring. Beets grow well from seed, provided you sow them in moist soil and are able to keep the soil slightly moist while they are germinating. Once the seeds are up, thin them to leave 3 to 5 inches in between plants. The beet roots can be harvested about 60 days from planting. The beet greens are edible and quite delicious, besides having a beautiful color. Some gardeners are surprised to learn that beets (Beta vulgaris) and leafy Swiss chard (Beta vulgaris subsp. Cicla) are just different sub species of the same plant. Beet greens from seed will be ready to eat in 33-35 days, depending on the variety of beet you choose to grow. If you harvest all the leaves, the bulb will not form, so you have to make that decision in the garden if you are growing

Warm, inviting and comfortable, Tania and Vinnie’s basement feels like anything but a basement. ania and Vinnie spend most of their time in the basement with their two young kids. It was a big, multipurpose space that served as an office, a TV room, a playroom and a guest bedroom. Like most finished basements, there was a lot of usable space, but it was sorely in need of a better layout and a visual makeover. Tania was in favor of introducing earthy colors and a more rustic style, while Vinnie preferred a bit more color. They like the great outdoors, so I decided to reorganize the living area with nature as my inspiration. I also sectioned off his-and-hers workstations with ample storage, a children’s play area and a separate guest bedroom, which Tania and Vinnie planned to decorate at some point. Their old sectional sofa was, in fact, not old at all. It was certainly big enough for the living area, but it looked sloppy because it had too many back cushions. I tossed all of them and had new ones made using a contrasting patterned fabric. Immediately, this simple makeover

transformed Tania and Vinnie’s sofa from flat to fabulous. On the opposite wall, behind the TV, we hung a stunning forest-inspired wall mural. It certainly did the trick to bring the outdoors inside, instilling a real sense of calm and peace into this family retreat. Finally, we chose a beautiful but highly durable modular carpet-tile area rug. Each panel is removable and washable, because spills are inevitable when kids (and some adults) are around! Just down the garden path — or should I say beyond the forest? — is the guest bedroom, fully enclosed and waiting to welcome those out-of-town family members. I decided to create separate but adjoining workstations for Tania and Vinnie so they would each have a desk to call their own. Store-bought shelving with plenty of storage surrounds both desks, and track

It is good for the beet as well as the beet greens. Detroit Red and Cylindra produce good, dark red beets. If you would like to try a yellow beet, plant the Yellow Detroit. The most recommended beet variety for the tops is one called Early Wonder Tall Top. You also could grow beets to add to micro green mix. The young shoots are easy to harvest, and they are delicious.

Spittlebugs are small insects, less than ¼-inch long, but you don’t always see the insect because they are hidden in a mass of frothy foam.

Use garden shears, reciprocating saw or hacksaw to cut branches to proper height. To determine proper height, measure the distance from the top of the table to the bottom of any light fixture above. Protect work surface with kraft paper, then place branches on top. Add two even coats of matte black spray paint to branches.

Pour an even layer of pebbles into the urn that’s approximately 6 inches deep. Place dome-shaped floral foam inside of urn with dome side facing down. Ensure that foam stays in place by adding a bead of hot glue around the perimeter of the urn. ADD BRANCHES AND MOSS TO FOAM Insert branches, one at a time, into foam. Focus on keeping them spaced at least 1 inch apart to keep the look balanced. Cover the surface of the floral foam with moss secured with hot glue. Once finished, add any desired Halloweenthemed decorations to the branches, such as rubber bats, snakes, spiders or mini-hanging lanterns. For thousands of other ideas, visit www.hgtv. com.

MARY CAROL GARRITY

Twist some honeysuckle vines up the base of the bath. A central tenant of decorating is to mix the formal with the informal, the rough with the refined. So, we balanced the wild, organic nature of our centerpiece with an elegant table service. A silver tray holds crystal champagne flutes. A three-tiered silver server will show off even the simplest of appetizers — fruits, cheeses, nuts and veggies — in fine style. Another benefit of a buffet service is that guests are free to mill and mingle about. To give my guests a comfortable place to sit while they dine, I cozied up iron outdoor furniture with soft cushions and pillows made from durable outdoor fabrics. Instead of doing an elaborate fall centerpiece on my little iron table, I just added an orange wooden tray. Thanks to my sheltered screened porch, I can entertain outdoors even when the weather is nippy or misty. When guests gather on the porch, I use my wooden hutch to serve food and drinks. To trick it up for a fall party, I added a spray of fall foliage to the top, then dotted the shelves with gourds and little vases holding orange roses, one of my all-time favorite flowers for fall decorating.

2013 PRESIDENT OCALA/MARION COUNTY ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®

Shadow Inventory Drops by 1/3 What is “Shadow Inventory”? Pre-foreclosures. Why is “Shadow Inventory” important to watch? It was deemed a big threat to derailing the housing recovery, but that threat is slowly vanishing. Shadow inventories have now fallen to the lowest point in four-and-a-half years and dropped more than a third since August of last year according to, Lenders Processing Services reports in the “first look” data from its August Mortgage Monitor. The shadow inventory now represents 2.66 percent of all homes with a mortgage in the country, compared to 4.04 percent a year ago. Unfortunately, Florida still leads the way at 16% with the highest percentage of non-current loans as of July, however that is down 24.1% year-over-year. Month-over-month during 2013 our “Local Market Reports” are reflecting less sold/closed properties under foreclosure or short sale status and more traditional sales than in the years past. Are you unsure where to get more information about foreclosures or short sale process. Contact a REALTOR Today!

Mud-jacking may not be the garage-floor fix casts extra light on Scripps Howard News Service

own a one-story Q:Iranch, with the garage

extended on the front of the house. The only common wall with the house is the rear wall of the garage. I back both vehicles into the garage, and have done so for the 30 years we have lived here. The blacktop driveway was replaced with concrete five years ago. Two years ago, a small hairline crack developed across the entire garage floor where the front tires of both vehicles are when the vehicles are parked. Last year, the garage floor began to sink in

toward the crack. Since this area is near the front of the garage, the garage floor also has raised a slight bit where it meets the end of the driveway. Could mudjacking solve the problem and level the garage floor, or should the garage floor be replaced? Mud-jacking, the process of pumping a slurry of cement under the floor through small strategically spaced drilled holes, has been

DWIGHT BARNETT

A:

used successfully for years to level concrete floors, walks and patios, to mention a few examples. Because the floors are moving independently of each other at the crack, there may be an underlying problem with erosion. Adding the weight of the cement slurry or grout may cause additional problems. I would recommend that the smaller section of concrete near the driveway be removed and the soils inspected for erosion or other problems that may have been caused by the addition of a concrete driveway. Once the problems are

identified, you can then choose to replace the concrete by sections or replace the entire garage floor, which I believe in your situation will be necessary. Make sure you locate and correct the source of the erosion, if that is truly the problem. Dwight Barnett is a certified master inspector with the American Society of Home Inspectors.

Stars of ‘Crocodile Dundee’ sell their Malibu estate million.

Los Angeles Times

hris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky have purchased a Malibu estate from actors Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski for $4.8 million. The remodeled home, built in 1992 and set on an acre, has ocean views, vaulted ceilings and a library. A Victorian exterior belies the more than 6,000 square feet of contemporary interior. There are five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Hemsworth, 30, stars in the new movie “Rush.” He has starred in such films as “The Cabin in the Woods” (2012), “Snow White & the Huntsman” (2012),“Thor” (2011) and the upcoming “Thor: The Dark World.” He is the

Pataky, 37, was in this year’s “Fast & Furious 6” as well as “Fast Five” (2011). Hogan, who turns 74 on Oct. 8, and Kozlowski, 55, are known for the “Crocodile Dundee” films. They bought the property last year for $3.8

Talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres has turned around another property, this time unloading her 26-acre ranch in Thousand Oaks for $10.85 million. DeGeneres and her spouse, Portia de Rossi, bought the rural property in 2009 for $8.5 million and had it on and off the market for the last two years. The spread includes eight contemporary farmhouse-style cabins, two barns, a yoga pavilion, stables and a tennis court. There are eight bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms and a partial bath. ■■■

Actor Dennis Quaid has sold a house for $3.315 million in Pacific Pali-

sades. The “At Any Price” star purchased the remodeled home for $3.1 million earlier this year, several months after he and Kimberly Quaid filed for divorce a second time. They have since reconciled. The 3,421-square-foot home features an open floor plan, four bedrooms and 4½ bathrooms. There is a saltwater swimming pool, a spa and patio space. Quaid, 59, starred this year and last in the series “Vegas.” His film work includes “Pandorum” (2009), “Vantage Point” (2008) and “The Day After Tomorrow” (2004).

work surfaces Continued from 4H lighting casts extra light on the work surfaces. Comfy white office chairs on casters will allow both Mom and Dad to wheel across to the kids’ play area, which features a crafts-andgames table, built-in storage and an interlocking block wall that serves as a visual screen to block off the stairs. The basement’s old drop ceiling was terribly ugly, so we replaced the tiles and installed a very cool coffered-style ceiling system. These lightweight PVC strips clip right on top of the existing drop-ceiling T-bars. What a quick and easy way to give a dated basement ceiling an instant style lift! Like many basements, the windows in this space were small. Once again, I was able to use one of my favorite designer tricks to create the illusion of larger, above-ground windows. We installed mirrored panels below each window, and then covered the entire area — window and mirror — with wooden shutters.

Every day is Mom’s day.

OcalaMom.com

The light is reflected off the mirrors through the gaps in the shutter slats, and it seems as if the windows are much bigger than they really are. The basement is a hardworking space that serves many different purposes. By sectioning it into designated zones, the room is used more efficiently and everybody gets a piece of the pie: the kids get a play zone, the adults each get a work zone and everybody gets to kick back in the lounge area. Plus, guests no longer have to sleep out in the open, which is a bonus in anyone’s book. Warm, inviting and comfortable, Tania and Vinnie’s basement feels like anything but a basement! All the finishes are durable, and with its functional layout, this space is sure to serve them well for a long time.

Advice on vessel-type bathroom sinks Scripps Howard News Service

My wife and I are installing a new bathroom sink. We agreed on a “vessel”-style sink, but had no idea that we had so many material choices. We’re leaning toward a “natural stone” vessel sink. To help us with a final decision, can you please tell us more about stone vessel sinks? — Bob, Ohio A vessel sink sits on top of the counter rather than being mounted in or below the countertop. This opens up a lot of design opportunities because the sink rim will not be confined to fitting a straight countertop edge. Along with design

Q:

A:

freedom comes a vast choice of materials that you can use for a vessel sink. China, stainless steel and cast iron can keep the look a little more traditional. Glass, metal and natural stone, on the other hand, can give your bathroom a more dramatic effect. When it comes to natural stone, marble is a very popular choice for vessel sinks. Since a marble vessel sink is usually formed and polished from a single piece of stone, the

When it comes to natural stone, marble is a very popular choice for vessel sinks. Since a marble vessel sink is usually formed and polished from a single piece of stone, the finished product may look more like a piece of sculpture than a bathroom sink. finished product may look more like a piece of sculpture than a bathroom sink. Here are a few more things to keep in mind: When installing, use only caulking and sealants made for natural stone, or you may stain the sink. Also, since this is a natural product, colors and grain may be limited to the stone available. Finally, this type of bathroom sink is a

higher-end plumbing product, and that’s a “stone-cold” fact!
