Welcome to the Home & Garden Review BY TERESA MCQUERREY RIM REVIEW EDITOR

Welcome to the Home & Garden Rim Review. In this special edition of the Review you will find information about the new seed-lending program at the Payson Public Library and an update on the Payson Community Garden. Also inside is an article about thrift store decorating by a local enthusiast and how to make a small space a charming place. There are also articles about maintenance, keeping homes clean and healthy, general gardening and outdoor living. There are all kinds of resources for making updates to your home — whether it’s a major remodel or just freshening things up for a change in the season. A whole television network is devoted to the topic. Unfortunately, it seems to show a steady stream of repeats than new shows. So, if you find that as annoying as I do, indulge in a little Web surfing and find all the latest and greatest. In fact, to get you started — if you

are so inclined — that’s exactly what I did to research decorating trends for 2014. Google the topic and you get 21 million “sites” — I checked only three: Better Homes & Gardens, Elle and House Beautiful. While they all had some common themes, there was an almost overwhelming diversity. Trends are fun in small doses — which is also the more economical approach to incorporating them. Among the trends are global prints (primarily from India) and Native American textiles, agates and geodes, brass and gold and mixing metallics (not shiny, more burnished), nail head trim, raw and honey-toned wood, rope, and wallpaper (in small doses, such as a single wall). Among the year’s popular colors: radiant orchid (apparently the color of the year), navy blue, a color palate featuring a variety of blues, turquoise, yellow, bright (not “Easter”) pastels, mint green and warm grays. Another “fabric” trend present on all three sites: hides, in both natural and dyed colors, on furniture in varying lengths, plus feathers and taxidermy

were noted. Something called Ikat (which from the looks of it is a print suggesting the eye of a cat) was mentioned on more than one site. Other textile trends included big blossoms, wide-striped fabric and blocked prints — this appears to be the next level of color blocked fabrics, you have two complementary colors on the fabric, one features a small image in multiple repetition and the other has that same image as a large, single element in the center. General style trends cited were glamour, traditional, schoolhouse, vintage, brightly painted front doors and painted furniture. Style mavens may think their opinion is the ultimate word, but in reality, they’re just making suggestions — if you like what they have to say, fine, go ahead and use them as you choose, if you don’t, that’s OK too, after all, you are the one living with your things. And what’s living if you don’t love the things with which you live? Thanks for reading — hope you enjoy what we have to share in this Home & Garden Rim Review.

Lots of local resources for gardeners BY TERESA MCQUERREY RIM REVIEW EDITOR

Novice and veteran gardeners have lots of local resources in the Rim Country. The community boasts two garden clubs, the High Country Garden Club that meets the evening of the first Thursday of the month and the Rim Area Gardeners, which meets the evening of the second Monday of the month. There are also the experts who are offering classes in conjunction with the Payson Community Garden — these programs are free and open to public as well as residents using the community garden. Additionally there are the resources of the University of Arizona Extension Service at the county complex on the corner of West Frontier and South Colcord, plus the area’s longtime nursery businesses. Both garden clubs frequently feature area experts presenting programs. For instance when the High Country Garden Club meets at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, May 1, Eileen Lawson and Martha Teubner will demonstrate how to create prizewinning Creative Garden Art. Each won prizes at last year’s Northern Gila County Fair. Teubner won for her chair planter and Lawson for her dish garden. At the April meeting there was a program on Companion Planting, which can

be defined as beneficial grouping of plants to help discourage insects, attract beneficial insects, flavor enhancing or providing nutrients to the soil and plants. The meetings are at the fellowship hall of the First Southern Baptist Church, at the corner of Bonita and Colcord streets in Payson. Refreshments will be served after the presentation. For more information, please contact Carol Blann at (928) 9783881. At the April meeting of the Rim Area Gardeners had a program by Cayci Vuksanovich on Gardening Even if you Don’t have a Normal Garden Plot — in other words, container gardening. The club meets at 7 p.m. the second Monday of the month at the Church of Christ and welcomes the public to come to learn. Call President John Schulz at (928) 472-6571 with questions. The High Country Garden Club will be sharing the bounty of members’ gardens and growing expertise at its annual Plant Sale from 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, May 10 in the Walmart parking lot. This is the club’s major, yearly fundraising project. This year members are incorporating a craft sale and a bake sale along with offering many indoor and outdoor plants, including annuals, perenni-

als, vegetables and herbs. The craft table will have handmade pots, stepping stones, birdhouses, planters and many other unique items. Members will be on hand to discuss the plants and assist

with loading items into vehicles. Another article in this special Home & Garden Rim Review has information on the classes scheduled at the Payson Community Garden.

Tips for a bountiful backyard garden The benefits of having your own backyard vegetable garden are plentiful, and can include significant lifestyle impacts, such as healthier eating habits, money saving perks and more.

your garden. Use a sod lifter or garden spade, keeping the area level and removing as little topsoil as possible. Next, use a round point shovel to dig into the soil about 12 inches, breaking it up and removing clumps. To encourage proper drainage and escape light freezes in early spring and fall, construct a raised bed by creating a border with wood slats and filling in with soil.


Looking for a hobby that allows you to contribute to the health of your family? Take up gardening. Beyond producing nutritious foods, it can help you teach your family about local agriculture, all while basking in the tranquility of the great outdoors. Though starting your own home garden can be intimidating, there are a few simple steps to get you started. Once developed, it can yield fruits and vegetables from early spring and into the fall.


Use a rake to create a smooth finish and remove debris or stones on the surface. You may want to add manure, compost or soil additives to provide additional nutrients in the soil. PLANT YOUR SEEDS


Find out what vegetables grow best in your area and when is the right time to plant and harvest. Many local university extension programs have this information readily available online. For each plant, consider the amount of water needed, how much sunlight is required and if it should be started from seed or a transplanted seedling. CHOOSE A GOOD SPOT

Keep in mind vegetables need at least six hours of sun each day, so plant away from the shade of buildings, trees and shrubs. Planting close to your house may make you more likely to bring your harvest right into your

Determine if you will be starting your plants from seeds or transplanting small seedlings. Be sure to research how much room each plant will need and plot the layout of your garden. Dig V-shaped furrows using a warren hoe or the edge of a garden hoe. Carefully distribute the seeds in the furrows evenly and in accordance with the instructions on the seed packet. Cover the seeds and pat down gently, then water thoroughly. Use this information for a fruitful harvest this gardening season. For more tips, visit www.AmesTrueTemper .com.

Payson Public Library has seed lending program BY TERESA MCQUERREY RIM REVIEW EDITOR

Rim Country residents now have a Seed Lending Library available at the Payson Public Library. The seeds available through the seed library are for edible plants (fruits, vegetables, herbs) and most are either organic or heirloom varieties. Membership in the Payson Seed Library is free and does not require an active Payson Public Library card. Some basic information about the seed library follows, additional literature is at the library.

There is no cost to borrow seeds. The only requirement is a commitment to growing plants from these seeds as a gift to yourself and saving the seeds produced to return to the community (if possible). There are a few restrictions — some seeds may only be checked out once a year; others every three months; borrowers are limited to 10 packets a month and may only have a single packet of each seed chosen. If possible, save the seeds at harvest and then return a portion of the seeds from the strongest, tastiest and most

vigorous plants to the Seed Library to keep it self-sustaining. The more seeds in the library, the more community residents can experience the joys of growing their own food. Seed Library users will not be penalized if they are unable to return seeds back to the Seed Library at the end of the season. It is understood that seed saving is new to many. But if you are willing to help sustain the Seed Library, you will be part of the evolution toward seeds best adapted to grow in our arid, high chaparral, forest environment.

The Payson Public Library and Sustainable Rim Country partnered together for the creation and organization of this circulating seed library. The seeds that make up the collection have come to the library through the generous donations of various seed companies: American Meadows, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, W. Atlee Burpee, Geo. W. Park Seed Co., Seedway, Seeds of Change, Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, and Territorial Seed. To learn more, call the Payson Public Library at (928) 474-9260.

Incorporating raised flower beds using stone planters can beautify the landscape without taking a lot of time or effort.


Don’t let a sore back, bad knees or lousy soil stop you from gardening. Elevate your garden for easier access and better gardening results. The simple act of creating a raised bed improves drainage in heavy clay soil. Add in some organic matter to further increase drainage and improve the water holding ability for sandy soils. And if your soil is beyond repair or you don’t want to wait, a raised garden allows you to bring in quality soil and create a garden right on top of the existing soil or even paved areas. The quality soil and easy access will allow for dense plantings without pathways. This means greater yields, up to four times more, in raised beds than in-ground gardens. Raised beds also help conserve water. You’ll concentrate your growing efforts in smaller areas and that means less water wasted. Increase the benefit by using soaker hoses or drip irrigation in order to concentrate water application to the soil nearest the plants, right where it is needed. Make your raised bed a comfortable height. Elevating the garden minimizes bending and kneeling. Design raised beds in corners or edges suited for sitting or areas narrow enough to set a garden bench alongside for easy access. Design raised gardens so they are narrow enough for gardeners to easily reach all plants growing within the garden. Or include steppers or pathways if creating larger raised garden areas. Add a mowing strip around the edge of the raised bed. A narrow strip of mulch or pavers set level with the soil surface keep the area tidy and eliminate the need for hand trimming. Select a material suited to your landscape design. Wood, brick and stones have long been used to create raised beds. Consider using materials that are long-lasting and easy to assemble, like planter stones. These

stone sections can be set right on the ground, fit together easily, and can be arranged and stacked to make planters the size, shape and height desired. Start a raised bed garden by measuring and marking the desired size and shape. Remove the existing grass and level the area. For taller raised gardens edge the bed, cut the grass short and cover with newspaper or cardboard prior to filling with soil. Be sure to follow directions for the system being installed. Once the raised bed is complete, fill it with quality soil. Calculate the volume of soil needed by multiplying the length times the width times the height of the raised bed, making sure all measurements are in feet. Convert the cubic feet measurement to cubic yards by dividing it by 27 (the number of cubic feet in a cubic yard). For a 4-foot-by-8-foot raised bed that is two feet deep you would multiply 4 x 8 x 2. This equals 64 cubic feet. Divide by 27 and you will need just a bit more than 1 cubic yard of soil. Don’t let the math overwhelm you; most topsoil companies and garden center staff can help you with the calculations. Just be sure to have the raised bed dimensions handy when you order your soil. The best part is that this one time investment of time and effort will pay off with years of gardening success. ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Payson Community Garden growing strong BY MICHELE NELSON ROUNDUP STAFF REPORTER

While the rest of us enjoyed the calm and peace of winter, the members of the Payson Community Garden turned it into a university-level showplace. During a late April morning, Anita Barker, a community garden board member, proudly gave a tour of the new additions. “We put in a bird, bee and butterfly garden, demonstration and research gardens, SIPS (sub-irrigated planters) and Dutch Buckets,” said Barker. “No matter how little space someone has, we can show them how to grow vegetables,” she said. Barker said all of the garden plots have sold, including the three new rows of plots. “We have a waiting list,” said Barker. As she gave the tour of the garden, she showed off the winter vegetable gardens, a garden covered in black paper designed to draw warmth into the soil, and frost cloths covering new plants struggling to gain a foothold. “The temperature in the air does not indicate the time to plant,” she said. “Right now the soil is not warm enough. I tell people you’re not out here during the nights.” Nearby, a garden with pepper and tomato plants already in the soil had some damage from frost, while others were still fine. “It was a mild winter, but frost comes through like wisps of smoke,” said Barker. She said it fascinates her that despite her years of gardening, coming to the Payson Community Garden still teaches her new things. Take frost, she had no idea it has such a randomness to it. She said parts of the garden are affected and others not. Sometimes, two plants in a garden will be affected and others next to them are not. She’s seen one swath down the middle of the garden affected, while the sides remained fine. She also enjoys seeing the different ways people grow their food. “I tell people there are 140 gardeners (in the community garden), by the time you talk to them all, you become a master gardener,” said Barker. In one research garden, the owner read about mixing spinach, radish and lettuce seeds together and sowing them all together in “broadcast” fashion. Already the cold weather crops are starting, but Barker said those plants grow best in cold weather. Barker said one gardener tried to grow corn, but the soil was too wet and cold and instead of growing, the corn seeds rotted. “That can happen with seeds,” said Barker. To help answer questions, the Payson Community Garden will again have Garden Monitors that will wear lime green colored hats. “Ask questions because they are experienced gardeners,” said Barker. Yet she still tells people to attend the Saturday morning classes. Even she learns new and useful tips. “I can walk around the garden and spot those gardeners who have not attended classes or read their emails,” she said. The Payson Community Garden secretary sends out an email each week on updates, what’s going on in class, and needs of the garden. This year, Barker said the board decided to have teams of specialists from painters to those knowing tool repairs. “One gentleman, Ralph, signed up for tool maintenance,” said Barker. “I don’t even tell him to fix a tool, I just pull it out, he takes it home and brings it back the next day fixed.” She said her painters will paint anything so people bringing their own tools to the garden must be careful or they will be painted the iconic purple color and included in the lineup of tools to borrow.

Anita Barker, a board member with the Payson Community Garden, shows off one of the garden’s new additions — Dutch Buckets, a modified hydroponics system. Buckets have a hole drilled in the bottom for drainage. The water with nutrients is put onto the plant and the excess dribbles out the bottom.

“Roger (Kreimeyer) has lost a few tools that way,” said Barker. The Eagle Scouts have taken on the garden for projects. They built the bird, bee and butterfly garden and will build a dome — the board is still deciding how to use that structure, Barker said. “We could hold classes or grow an experimental garden,” she said. She then walked to a corner of the garden where there are buckets, tubs, a dark green covering and rows of green painted slats. This is where the SIPS and Dutch Bucket experiments are housed. Barker excitedly showed off bok choy, a winter crop, she grew in a SIP. “It keeps the soil perfectly damp and with the organic nutrients mixed in the soil, the plants are always fed,” she said. A SIP is a bucket or other container with a PVC pipe stuck down the side into the bottom. Barker said she waters through the pipe, that way she can see the level of water or if the plants even need water. The Dutch Buckets are a modified hydroponics system. Buckets, they can be five-gallon paint buckets or people may come to the garden to purchase one ready to go, have a hole drilled in the bottom for drainage. The water with nutrients is put onto the plant and the excess dribbles out the bottom. “Both ways conserve water,” said Barker. She said the garden plots lose a lot of water in comparison, but they are a great way to grow vegetables. The garden is now only open from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Look for a new website to start up, too. “We envision it will be a place to collect all of the information we share and learn,” said Barker. Garden classes have been underway since March. At right is an organic plant food introduced in a class. Classes are at the Church of the Nazarene at 9 a.m. Saturdays.

At the Payson Community Garden some members unable to control the urge to get out and plant have covered their plots in black paper designed to draw warmth into the soil and frost cloths covering new plants struggling to gain a foothold (at left). Meanwhile, the garden’s paint crew is prepping the raised beds. The beds make it easier for those in wheelchairs to use the garden. Funds from Cenpatico benefited the garden, increasing accessibility to the handicapped and those in wheelchairs.

Transform small spaces into charming places In home listings across the country, the word “small” is often replaced with a far more marketable and appealing word: “charming.” But what makes a home charming compared to small? How does a homeowner transition a cramped room into a space with unique and appealing character? Focusing on a few key areas will let you make a big impact in a little space, allowing you to create a charming and memorable environment. For starters, when dealing with a small space, it’s important to live clutter free. Make sure that only mandatory items and furniture are in the room. CREATE SPECIAL SPACES AND STORAGE

Lorie Marrero, a certified professional organizer and author of “The Clutter Diet,” recommends carefully considering the functions of any space — is it for TV viewing, reading or computer use — so that only the items needed for those specific functions are stored there. Understanding how this space is utilized also allows you to establish dedicated zones and supplies for each activity more efficiently. In addition, Marrero notes that creating proper storage is the key to managing and maintaining a clutter-free home. “Even if large closets aren’t available, there are a number of versatile and CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

Decorating a small space can be a challenge or an exercise in creativity. Look for items with multiple uses, or use your imagination with what you have. For instance, closet doors can be removed and replaced with curtains — adding color and accessibility.

“Alright, I’m over it,” I say, hands on my hips, staring at the dusty mantle decor and other outdated items. I need to shop. While a statement like this usually strikes fear into any man, as he proceeds to the safe for the checkbook and credit cards, in our house, my husband knows that $20 is all I need to give our living room a new look. It’s Friday and I am hitting the thrift stores. Payson is rich with secondhand shops. When planning a shopping route, however, I don’t forget to Bessie Tucker add Pine to the list. There are not only a host of shops there, but shopping in more than one community delivers a diversity of finds reflective of donors’ tastes and decorating styles. In Payson, for example, I have spotted Louboutin and Vera Wang at the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Shop, 1006 S. Beeline Highway. Friends often ask where I get such unique pieces or how I am so lucky finding items at thrift stores remiBessie Tucker photos niscent of West Elm or Restoration Hardware.

I drop that off at the first thrift shop and have an empty box to hold the day’s finds. It is a great way to make space in the home for “new” stuff. I also look through home decor catalogs and websites like Pinterest, making mental notes of trends, color schemes and furniture shapes. I have picked up more than one piece because it looked like one I saw in a Pottery Barn advertisement or a lamp that reminded me of one on I also delve into my sentimental side. From books or games from childhood, I re-create those memories by seeking out game boxes and book labels. On a recent trip to the Senior Center Thrift Store, 512 W. Main St., I picked up an unused deck of Parker Brothers French Card Game Craze Mille Bornes just as crisp and bright green as I remember on family game night, some 25 years ago. With the research done, I set a spending limit so my day of thrifting is guilt free. If I walk out the door with $45, spend $20 at the Almost New Shop, 304 E. Aero Drive, I have $25 left for the Pine-Strawberry Thrift Shop, 3916 N. Highway 87. And in many cases, the money goes to a worthy nonprofit. More guilt-free motivation.

Clearing a small home of its clutter will automatically make it seem larger. However, the illusion of more space can also be enhanced with proper lighting. The right lighting will also play a big role in helping create a more charming feel. Recessed lighting is visually appealing and perfect for small spaces. Torchiere lights can help bounce light off the ceiling and back down to the room. If the room does not have windows, consider adding a skylight to bring character and light to the space. You can also affect a room’s lighting with low-cost or no-cost solutions that make the most of the space’s built-in features. For example, highlight the windows, don’t cover them. If the room has a fireplace, emphasize it. ADD CHARMING DETAILS

Woodwork is another simple embellishment that adds instant character and charm without affecting usable space. A chair rail, crown molding or even baseboards can help take a standard room and outline it with interesting architectural elements. In a small area, intricate woodwork can serve as a main focal point or art, giving the space exceptional appeal that won’t be easily forgotten. By managing clutter, using lighting to create bright and airy spaces and incorporating simple architectural elements, you can easily transform a cramped area into a charming and inviting room that you — or a potential buyer — can enjoy.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) his is a good week to look at healing bruised feelings and re-establishing weakened relationships. It’s also a good week to start new projects and make new job-linked contacts. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Music and art dominate the week, giving the sensual Bovine a lot to appreciate. On the practical side, deal firmly, but fairly, with those who might try to undermine your work efforts. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Good feelings continue to flow from your recent efforts to reconnect with family and friends. But be ready to defuse a dispute before it can disrupt all that peace and harmony. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A practical view of a romanticized situation could help to clarify some of its more confusing aspects before you make a decision that could be tough to undo later on. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Pay more attention to what a recent spate of workplace criticism might say about your performance and not what you think it implies about you personally. Some flexibility might be called for. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) With new information, and new promises of support (not to mention growing self-confidence), this could be a good time to restart a project you couldn’t quite handle before. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Before you decide to close down a problem-loaded project and make a fresh start with someone else, try once more to reach a compromise with your balky partner. He or she might surprise you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) While you continue earning points for your sharp negotiating skills, be alert for an attempt to undercut your efforts. You’ll need to provide solid facts and figures to stay in the game. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A minor health problem might cause you to ease up on your usually busy schedule. But you’ll soon be back in the saddle and ready to pick up the reins and charge ahead. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) The adventurous Sea Goat might be eager to take on a new challenge. But before you do, you might want to take some time to check out previously overlooked factors. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A feeling of being overwhelmed by all that you have to do can be eased by setting priorities. Deal with the most urgent and timesensitive situations first, and then work down the line. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Creating a calm, peaceful place for yourself in the middle of a roiling emotional whirlpool this week starts when you, and no one else, decide how to make decisions about your life. BORN THIS WEEK: Your determination to stick with your principles wins the admiration of everyone who knows you. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.
