      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Organic weed control

Recommended Posts

I know the best methods of organic weed control are all mechanical, but is there an organic spray that can get rid of stinging nettle? It is spreading pretty rapidly in our farm yard, but I cannot use any of the traditional chemical methods to control it.

There is a product called Weed Pharm, it comes in a ready to use bottle. Safer Products I believe still makes a similar product that comes in a concentrate. Both of the products are non-selective herbicides so whatever they touch they will kill.

Do you know where the concentrated acetic acid is available? We used some a few years back with mixed results. Killed the grasses, but not the broadleaves - just stunted those.

We use flaming on a large scale, but not around the yard. I will look into what is available around here.

JR Johnson Supply in Minneapolis is where I get it. Buckwheat Growers Association or Albert Lea Seedhouse might have it also.

I've gotten rid of it around some of my plots with periodic mowing if that is an option.

The areas with most of the stinging nettle are on the edges of our groves, where mowing is next to impossible.

We do quite a bit of business with Albert Lea Seedhouse, so I will check with them to see if they have the acetic acid.
