Avid Southwest gardeners see August as a time to enjoy the beauty of summer annuals, the bounty of a summer garden harvest, and the shade of the early morning or late afternoon. Southwest gardeners also mark August as the traditional beginning of the fall vegetable garden. Some fall vegetables should be planted by seed as early as mid-August: squashes like acorn, butternut and Hubbard; zucchini; melons like “Crenshaw,” honeydew, and casaba; fall sweet corn; tomatoes; peppers; and green beans. And September marks the beginning of the fall vegetable planting season — the most abundant season in desert gardening. So, preparing the garden’s soil is on every vegetable grower’s August checklist.

Homeowners are starting to think about spring cleaning rituals. We organize, shuffle, wash, vacuum and even dust in corners that are normally forgotten or overlooked. We conquer our bathrooms, kitchens, dark closets and are brave enough to look under the bed. What about the furniture? More than likely, it hasn’t been cleaned, or cleaned properly, in a long time, if ever. So, it’s time for spring-cleaners to tackle their deep, dark furniture-cleaning fears.
