Don’t Give Up on the Fall Garden time to be planting cool-season crops. Lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, spinach, radishes and arugula all love the crisp fall weather as much as we do.

By Sean Conway Tribune Media Services

Now that temperatures have cooled and the sight of school buses is once again the norm, there is no denying that the summer garden season is drawing to a close. My garden is still yielding an abundance of produce, but warmth-loving plants such as eggplant, peppers and tomatoes have stopped putting forth new growth and instead are expending energy on their ripening fruit. Each day, I have been picking overflowing baskets of ripe red, yellow and green-striped tomatoes, plump, dark purple eggplant and a rainbow of colored peppers in varying shapes. Quite honestly, I’m ready for the plants to ease up. I have overdosed on all of them. That’s an all too common complaint among inveterate gardeners. And it’s a reason to be thankful for the succession of fruits and vegetables that happens throughout the growing season. In June, when strawberries are ripe, I eat them until I am tired of the taste. Midsummer signals the blueberry phase in my diet: blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, blueberries on cereal, ice cream and yogurt – not to mention blueberry tarts and blueberry pie. Then come the tomatoes, my favorite things to gorge on. When they first come into season, I can’t seem to get enough. I can eat them all day long. My favorite summer lunch is a bowl of tomatoes, lightly salted, drizzled with olive oil and tossed with a splash of sherry vinegar and a handful of basil flowers. In case you haven’t tried them,

This past week, I planted four types of lettuce, two types of kale and seeded the first round of radishes. I happen to have a rather large garden; even if you don’t, the advantage of cool crops like lettuce and spinach is that they take up less room in a garden than warm season crops. Most cool-loving vegetables are ready to harvest rather quickly, and many are quite tolerant of cool temperatures. Some spinach varieties, for instance, can even tolerate a light freeze, as can broccoli and kale.

basil flowers have even more concentrated basil flavor than the leaves, and they don’t need chopping. They also mix into a salad more easily than chopped or shredded leaves. By late September, however, there are baskets full of perfectly ripe tomatoes sitting on the kitchen counter just waiting for me to cut them up and break out the olive oil. Unfortunately, my taste buds are ready for a break. I’m ready for more cool-season gardening. Many gardeners hang up their hoes at the end of the warm season, perhaps unaware that their gardens have months of productivity left in them. Now is the perfect

Fall gardens produce a lot of bounty. See story above. (Thinkstock)

On the Cover

You may have overdosed on tomatoes, peppers and zucchini and may be ready to walk away from your garden until next spring, but don’t give up yet. Use the last of the tomatoes and peppers to make tomato sauce, and plant some cool season vegetables in their place. If you plant now, you can be harvesting fresh greens all through the fall. Like me, you will eat more salads than you thought possible, and by the end of fall tire of anything green and leafy. But by the dead of winter, you will be longing for the taste of something fresh picked, and you will be glad you did it when you had the chance.

Eco bathrooms a natural choice By Ed Del Grande HGTVPro.com

Q: I'm a contractor and never miss your column, which always gets me thinking about new ideas I can share with my clients. Recently I started working with a designer on a project, and she is excited about us offering the homeowner the option of an "eco," instead of a conventional, bathroom. I'm new to all this eco thinking for bathrooms and would like your views on the subject. Can you explain to me in plain English some basic components used in eco bathrooms? – Bill

If you’re planting trees this fall, give them the best care possible with these tips for planting: • Choose the site carefully for exposure and room to grow. Check the mature height of the tree and put it where it won’t rub against houses or power lines.

A: Simply put, an eco bathroom should incorporate as much natural and recycled material as possible, and efficient plumbing, lighting, heating and cooling equipment. But it doesn't stop there; the materials used for the project should also be ordered from factories and manufacturers that have kept environmental concerns in mind when mak-

• Prepare the planting hole so roots can extend out before the ground freezes. Dig the hole in a wide, shallow bowl shape that’s three to four times the diameter of the root ball. • Prevent sinking of the tree by ensuring that the bottom of the hole is firmly tamped down. • Place the tree in the hole so that the knees of the root ball – where the ball begins curving in toward the top – are an inch higher than the soil line. • Backfill with soil and add water to firm the soil around the root ball. • Properly watering your tree sets up its hardiness for winter. Those under drought stress are more sensitive to cold, suffering winter injury sooner than their well-watered counterparts. Water your trees once per month during winter if we are not getting much snowfall.

ing the products. That's the short version. For a more detailed breakdown, please see the following for a few ecofriendly ideas and tips that can be used to create an eco bathroom. • Vanities and countertops – Natural stone is a great choice for vanity tops, along with manmade countertops that use recycled materials. • Wall tiles – Natural-stone tiles and recycled-glass tiles work well. Also, fired-clay tiles that incorporate recycled material. • Flooring – Once again, naturalstone tiles are in high demand. However, environmentally friendly and energy-efficient, lightweight concrete flooring can be a good choice for bathrooms. • Plumbing fixtures – Cast-iron tubs and sinks are back in style since they are made from about 90 percent recycled materials. • Lighting fixtures – Wide choices in decorative fixtures that use less energy than standard fixtures have made it easy to conserve electricity.

Most people think of fall as a time of decline, when gardens quiet and leaves litter the ground. A feeling of sweet melancholy steals over us as we forget the bugs, disease and disappointments of the season in favor of wistful memories of the summer’s garden. But not everyone looks at fall as the dieing season; some see it as an opportunity to celebrate by planting a tree. Once you’ve popped your sapling into the ground, you’ll find that they sink roots into your heart as well as the soil. “When you start talking to people, Carol O’Meara everyone has a tree Colorado State story. They’re about University Extension being proposed to under a big oak or planting a cottonwood when going to visit grandparents,” says Sara Davis, Denver’s Million Tree Initiative program coordinator. “My mom made me stand in front of a silver maple on the first day of school every year so she could take a photograph. When that house was sold 13 years later, I wasn’t sad about the loss of the house, I was sad over the loss of the tree. It cemented me to the home.” Launched by Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper in 2006, the Million Tree Initiative aims to plant one million trees in 32 Denver-area cities by 2025. Tree lovers are participating by registering their leafy loved ones on greenprintdenver.org. So far, they’re on pace to achieve their short-term goal of 200,000 trees planted by the end of 2010. “The scientist in me tries to add a value in money and resources, because they provide environmental and economic benefit. But really what trees mean (to people) are a sense of place and community,” Davis says. “The areas that stick in your mind are those with big trees; without them places are sterile, devoid of personality.” Big vegetation appeals to humans, especially when commemorating events, such as the planting of nearly 400 trees at ground zero of the World Trade Center site. The trees, grown by nurseries in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. – areas of the attacks – will be planted around the 8-acre memorial throughout the next year. “We suffered a massive blow to our psyche as a nation; we want to honor that moment in time. Trees won’t last forever, but they last a couple of generations. Then, at the passing of trees and their replanting in the memorial, it rekindles that moment of renewed hope,” Davis says.

Think big with small spaces By Anna Taylor Longmont Times-Call

Clear the Clutter Before adding any additions to your home, whether it’s furniture or accents, it is important to look at what you already have. “Let your space dictate what you keep,” advises Elsa Jewett, a Denver-based professional organizer and Feng Shui consultant who works throughout Denver and Boulder County for All In Good Order. “Pick and choose the things that feed you emotionally and store the rest.” When you’re limited to a small area you need to put a lot of thought into what you need to have in your home and what you can do without. Assess Your Space Once you have cleared out any unneeded clutter you can determine exactly how much room you have to work with in your

This allows you to visualize the ideal sizes and ensure walking room between pieces. You may think that with limited space you would want to steer clear of large furniture but this often isn’t the case. By choosing one or two larger pieces as the focal points and accenting with smaller pieces, the area seems larger and more comfortable. “The key is to have a few pieces and

highlight them,” says Sean Cain, general manager for Woodley’s Fine Furniture in Longmont. Choose Your Furniture Wisely The style of furniture is also key when trying to make a space feel larger and more open. Cain says glass tables are nice because the transparent top is not as jarring visually and therefore gives the illusion of more space. He also suggests modular pieces because they can be rearranged easily and take up less room than traditional desks. Also, consider pieces that can serve multiple purposes. “Storage ottomans are great

because they eliminate the need for large end tables.” They can also be used for extra seating and coffee tables. Storage can be another factor that can help when choosing furniture. Folding chairs or stools and nesting tables provide extra seating and table space, but can be easily stored when they are not needed. Cain also suggests using armoires because they can be attractive while providing a large amount of storage space.

Maybe you live in a small apartment, have recently downsized to a more modest spot or simply have small areas of your home that are going unused because of their awkward shape or size but just because a space is petite doesn’t mean it can’t have huge potential! Here are some simple tips that can make any space in your home look and feel more spacious.

shades of blues and greens on walls to give the feeling of an open, airy space. She also advises placing darker colors on bottom and lighter colors on top when doing range coating. In contrast, Poll says certain rooms can utilize darker colors to make the space feel larger. “I painted a room dark green with glossy white trim and a white ceiling and, once art had been hung, the walls seemed to disappear.” The colors and textures of the furniture can also make a huge difference in creating a more open and spacious feel. Cain suggests choosing fabrics that are light in color and texture, such as silk and rayon, because they reflect light and make larger furniture pieces feel less bulky. “It’s harder to pull off a lighter look with heavier, busier fabrics,” Cain says. Try using smaller accents like throw pillows and blankets in bolder colors and textures. “Pull the more vibrant, fiery colors such as tangerines and reds into the room

with accents,” Jewett suggests. Small splashes of bright color are attention-grabbing and offset the wall color without being overwhelming. Light Up Your Life Lighting is essential for creating the impression of a larger, more open space. If you have natural light from a window, opt for lighter, see-through curtains rather than heavier fabrics which would block the light. Jewett also suggests opting for Roman shades which are much softer visually than Venetian blinds, which can be harsh and cutting. If you don't have natural lighting you can opt for either overhead lights or lamps. The most important consideration with lighting is to think about ambiance verses task, Poll explains. “You won’t be able to read from recess lighting like you would a table lamp.” With any type of lighting, though, Poll suggests having either three-way lights for table lamps or

dimmers for overhead lighting so the intensity can be adjusted depending on what function the space is serving at a given time. Don’t Waste Wall Space The walls can serve as a multifunctional component of your space, as well. Shallow shelves and hooks can be mounted to hold pictures and knick-knacks without taking up table and floor space. If you want to utilize the area for a workspace you can purchase wall pockets made of acrylic to keep files easily accessible, Jewett advises. Carefully placed mirrors make the space feel larger as well. “Mirrors are great because they are expansive,” Jewett says. The reflection extends the space visually creating the feel of a larger area. Overall, the specific style you choose will depend completely on your space. “There’s not a set of answers for every room,” Poll says. “It’s going to vary greatly from one home to another.”

It doesn’t make sense to prepay a 15-year mortgage at 3.75 percent

Beyond bedspreads, coverlet looms large holes – much like the holes on a player piano’s roll music – and these cards guided the creation of specific designs. This attachment, which first appeared in the United States in the 1820s, allowed the weaver to create intricate patterns and coverlets that did not have a seam down the middle. This was a great improvement over the seamed “overshot” coverlets that had been made on looms since the 18th century. The coverlet’s maker, Jacob Shalk, became an active weaver in Pennsylvania in the 1830s and in Ohio between 1840 and 1850. He died in Pennsylvania in 1864. The damage to one edge is unfortunate, but not catastrophic. The loss of fringe is not a major problem and can be repaired by an expert weaver/restorer. Like so many other categories of antiques, the value for this type of textile is down at the moment. However, this piece should still be insured for between $1,000 and $1,200.

Dear Helaine and Joe: This coverlet belonged to my great-great-grandmother, who lived in Pennsylvania.

Dear W.K.: The word “coverlet” is derived from the Middle English word “coverlite” or “coverlid,” which literally means “to cover the bed.” Well, a beautiful woolen spread such as this one will certainly cover a bed, but more important, this and similar items were essential in our ancestors’ homes, because without them (and home-pieced quilts), people would have been quite uncomfortable during the cold nights of winter. This coverlet would not have been possible without the invention of a loom attachment by French weaver Joseph Jacquard (1752-1834). He created a device for use on double-weave looms that used a series of cards with punched

Mortgage lenders want documents for everything By Marcie Geffner bankrate.com

Applying for a mortgage used to be easy: You’d complete an application and the lender would pull your credit score. More often than not, you’d be approved. But nowadays, lenders require paperwork that documents every facet of your financial life: taxable income, assets, rent payments and more. Bankrate can help you find the lowest available mortgage rate. And there’s no escape. Every borrower must survive what mortgage specialist Joe Metzler describes as “the flaming hoops of loan underwriting.” “Even if you are the most perfect (borrower), expect that you might still get singed going through,” says Metzler, who heads Mortgage Unlimited, in St. Paul, Minn. Four mortgage professionals offer the following list of items you may need to document income. Loan guidelines typically specify one month of verified income. You can prove this with paycheck stubs. Employees paid electronically may be able to access a corporate website to print out paycheck stubs. Guidelines typically require the most recent Form W-2, but some borrowers are asked for two years of W-2s. “If your loan hasn’t closed by the time that new W-2s should be received by the employees, then (the lender) may ask for that, certainly,” says Julie Miller, a sales manager at Prospect Mortgage, in Irvine, Calif. Borrowers generally must supply bank and investment account statements for the last 30 days. An application for a jumbo loan could trigger a request for up to three months of statements. In the past, only self-employed borrowers who went through full underwriting typically were required to present income tax returns. Today, almost everyone is expected to provide a recent tax return, including all the pages and schedules. Borrowers also must sign IRS Form 4506-T, which allows the lender to get a

Loan guidelines typically specify one month of verified income. You can prove this with paycheck stubs. Employees paid electronically may be able to access a corporate website to print out paycheck stubs. transcript of the tax return from the IRS. This practice “has become an industry standard as fraud prevention,” says Brad Blackwell, national sales manager at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. Tax returns are scrutinized for unreimbursed employee business expenses, selfemployment business losses and telltale signs of loan fraud, such as reported income that doesn’t match an employee’s W2. Don’t try to amend a prior year’s tax returns to show more income. That’s now a no-no. Self-employed borrowers may have to submit a current-year profit-and-loss statement, especially if the year is more than half over or they haven’t filed their prior year’s tax return. Many self-employed borrowers used to be able to get loans with little or no income documentation, but no more. “There is no more ‘stated income,’” says Peter Ogilvie, president of First Residential Mortgage Corp., in Santa Cruz, Calif. Borrowers who include rents from investment property in their income need to show the income on their tax return. Canceled rent checks and bank statements showing those deposits might be OK if the property was purchased in the current calendar year. Homeowners planning to buy a new home and rent out their current residence must provide a rental agreement, canceled rent checks and bank statements. They also must have at least 30 percent equity in

their current residence. An appraisal might be required at the borrower’s expense. Borrowers who receive a cash gift toward their down payment should be prepared to provide a letter from the “giftor” that declares the gift isn’t a loan. A copy of the giftor’s bank account statement showing the funds, a canceled check and the borrower’s own statement showing the funds also may be required. These guidelines are much stricter than they used to be, especially for borrowers who want to get a loan insured by the Federal Housing Administration, says Metzler. “It’s not that big a deal, except that Mom and Dad don’t like to give (their kids) a copy of their bank statement, especially if there is a lot of money in the account,” Metzler says. Renters must supply 12 months of canceled rent checks and bank statements showing the rent was paid on time. Renters without that documentation can provide the landlord’s name and contact information for payment verification. Borrowers also may be required to provide a copy of a divorce decree, proof of a child’s age if child support is counted as income, bankruptcy discharge papers and more. Lenders also may demand letters that explain negative items on a credit report or verify the borrower’s motivation for the loan, Miller says. Bring in documents early. Doing so can speed up the process. Also, never cross out, white-out or alter any information on a document. “If you white-out anything, it’s not a valid document for our purposes,” Miller says. Always provide every page of every document – even the pages that say “This page is blank.” “They want that, too,” Ogilvie says. “If it says ‘page one of seven,’ they want to see all seven pages.” Finally, remain ready to supply updated documents. “Documents expire after 60 days,” Blackwell says. “So if homebuyers take a long time in their house-hunting effort, we won’t need the whole thing again, but they will have to bring the most current paycheck and that type of thing.”

When buying bulbs to plant this fall, plan for spring bouquets at the same time you’re building your garden. Some good choices: fragrant double narcissi like “White Lion” or a fragrant, brightly colored jonquil like “Golden Echo.”
