TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) – Spring flowers are blooming and one of the best places to view them locally is at the Twin Falls Temple.The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which always keeps its grounds well-groomed, has a lay ministry in which members of the church volunteer their time and talents in many religious capacities.

Tips and tricks to welcome back gardens and flowers
TWIN FALLS — Spring is a time of renewal and growth, but not without a little muscle, sweat and gardening knowledge.Mary Jo Mallan was gone all winter and returned to a back lawn sprinkled with weeds and brown plants. The cold wind rattled distant wind chimes as Mallan cleared away a large patch of dried up Alyssum. After a rainy weekend, Monday was perfect dead plant-clearing, weed-picking weather.Among the brittle stems and brown leaves, one plant grew lush and green — dandelions.“If you don’t get them out now,” Mallan said, pulling out a huge cluster. “Once it dries, it’s impossible.”The smell of wet earth rose with the exposed roots. Above Mallan, a murder of crows circled overhead, floating on the breeze.Weed controlDon Morishita, a University of Idaho weed scientist, said the best method right now for removing perennial weeds like dandelions is to simply pull them out. Don’t use a herbicide on them in early spring because its root system is transferring carbohydrates upward to cr... (Twin Falls Times-News)Nov 18, 2016

The sugar year: While beet crop flourishes, massive sugar plant preps for harvest
The Paul plant and its smaller counterparts in Twin Falls and Nampa used to employ many seasonal workers — especially farmers who planted and grew sugar beets in the spring and summer, then worked the slicing campaign after harvest.
“It gave the farmers a winter job,” Hepworth said.
In the past decade, an expanding factory schedule increased opportunities for full-time, year-round employees.
The Paul factory still processes the crop as quickly as possible — the slicing campaign now lasts 200 days — but the plant holds back 40 percent of the nonperishable sucrose “juice” to be crystallized after the slicing campaign ends.
The factory now operates 24 hours a day with no breaks; the movement of product through the plant is choreographed to last 11 months, so the last of the 2015 crop is made into sugar shortly before the first of the 2016 crop hits the factory.
The sugar-making process takes a huge toll on equipment. Every summer, the factory is filled with workers who maintain, repair and upgrade the facility.
“Beets are abrasive. Sugar is very abrasive. Juice is corrosive,” Lloyd said.
Thousands of valves and miles of piping are inspected and repaired or replaced so the plant can run the next slicing campaign without breakdowns. Such work is called “prediction maintenance.”
“We have to predict what could go wrong” in order to prevent a breakdown, said Jeremy Smith, facility manager. “We can’t afford the downtime.”
Amalgamated Sugar’s three plants employ a total of about 1,600 workers, while an additional 400 seasonal workers man the 74 sugar beet receiving stations during harvest and the slicing campaign. As the Paul factory becomes more efficient, fewer employees are needed to work the slicing campaign and more are needed for maintenance and repair.
“But the maintenance and repair season is crunched down now,” Lloyd said. “And that’s the challenge.”
IDEAL GROWING SEASON
While the Paul plant crystallizes juice held back from the 2015 crop, Mother Nature is being kind to most Magic Valley sugar beet growers so far this year.
“No catastophes,” Hepworth said. Unlike some years.
In the first two months after sowing seeds, Hepworth made only three passes through the field: two applications of Roundup to kill emerging weeds and one cultivation to break up a hard layer of soil between the rows.
“No tractor has been in my beets since June,” he said.
The few exceptions to the near-perfect growing season include a narrow band of damage from a July hailstorm, a small infestation of the black bean aphid in some of the beet crop, and a few fields that show symptoms of rhizomania — called “crazy root” because of the deformed and shriveled root that results from the disease.
“We don’t worry about rhizomania too much any more,” Hepworth said. “There’s rhizomania in all the soil here, so most of us grow rhizomania-resistant beets now.”
The hailstorm set back affected sugar beets about four weeks, so growers expect a 4-ton-per-acre loss of yields in those fields. The aphid’s effect on the crop is not yet known, but damage was enough to warrant some growers near Kimberly spraying for the insect, which sucks the life out of new foliage.
Growing a crop is all about balance — paying close attention to economic thresholds, Hepworth said. It’s costly to treat a crop for pests and diseases, and crop losses in early stages are often less than the cost of treating the pest.
“It doesn’t make much sense to spend money to kill them unless they are doing a lot of damage,” he said.
With the 2016 sugar beet crop heading into the homestretch, growers are hoping for temperatures to drop to increase its sugar content.
How does that work?

Check out the wildflowers this weekend
New River Gorge National River, the state parks of Babcock, Carnifex Ferry Battlefield, Pipestem Resort, and Twin Falls Resort, and at Tamarack.
The complete event program schedule is listed below and is available online at http://www.nps.gov/neri/planyourvisit/wildflower-weekend.htm.
So what is so special about this area, the cause for such celebration? The New River Gorge area has the most diverse flora of any river gorge in central Appalachia. New River Gorge National River and area West Virginia State Parks help preserve this unbroken and globally significant section of the Appalachian forest ecosystem. Besides providing essential habitat for endangered mammals, rare birds and amphibians, a dedicated botanist can find over 1400 species of plants in these park sites.
The reason for this diversity of plants stems from the varied topography of the gorge, the northern flow of the New River that provides a pathway for southern plants to migrate and grow along the warmer sheltered riverbanks, and the higher elevations of the gorge that provide habitat for northern species.
In the New River Gorge, spring begins with the first solitary bloom of a skunk cabbage, bloodroot or trout lily by the riverside in early March. April offers a forest carpeted with wake robin and great trillium, Dutchman's breeches, and Virginia bluebell, and the understory alive with redbud and dogwood. The finale has showy displays of Catawba rhododen... (The Fayette Tribune)
