The Farm

We are residents of Hidden Springs planning for the agricultural areas in the community. Our focus for 2016 is on row crops, perennials, pumpkin patch, and a corn maze. We want to bring back the vitality, production, and sustainable features of the agriculture that allowed this community to exist and thrive. The farm draws people to our community. It is a source of pride and sets Hidden Springs apart from other developments, it is a place of wonder for our children, a space for nature and people to coexist harmoniously.

We had another great work night on Monday.  All of the vegetables have now been planted, we are doing some reseeding in areas that did not do well during the first round.  Please walk very carefully in the row crop, upick and squash beds as those little plants  can be hard to see.

The Idaho Botanical Garden tour was a great success.  We had about 120 people visit the farm, please accept your share of the many, many compliments we received from the visitors.

It is time to start making compost tea.  Does anyone have a piece of fine  mesh screen, about 2’ square that we could use for this purpose?

We are no longer going to have a separate weed pile, our compost masters are confident that our “pile” is hot enough to kill all those weeds so they can all go in the compost pile.

We will be working at the farm tomorrow, Monday June 10th, 6-8:00 PM.  Tasks will include seeding, weeding and compost screening. All rows in the row crop area are seeded, please walk carefully. Looking forward to seeing you!
