      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 .

BEST SWEET CORN

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any suggestions on where to get the best sweet corn around St. Paul or up around Anoka? Been awhile since I have had anything worth a darn. Thanks.

In Anoka the best corn comes from BAUER FARMS. They used to have a stand off 169 and Bass Lake Rd. Not sure if there is going to be one this year. Give them a call. It is the best corn I have ever had and I do know CORN. It is also the best for freezing. Ver large ears,very tender and flavorable.

Trust me on that as I drive from Richfield to that stand, just because the corn is that good. Last year froze 35 quarts.

It should start up about now.

County Market in Andover off of Round Lake Blvd has had some EXCELLENT sweet corn this year. Previous years it was hit & miss, but this year they have done me right!

That stand is right by my mom's. They do have excellent corn. Their stand is not up yet, but hopefully they will soon.

Let me know if you need the number. I have it somewhere.

Fishinchicks, hey if you see the stand set up let me know. They usually start around the 25th-30th. They are only there for a couple of weeks, otherwise you have to go directly to their farm.

I heard he wasn't going to have the stand this year, but I have not called them yet to confirm.

I'll have to keep checking with my mom - she drives by there regularly.

What is corn going for up in the Cities? We have a few farmers selling it for $3.50/dozen down here.

Our certified organic sweet corn should be ready soon. This will be our first attempt at a road side stand, so we'll see how it goes.

I bought a dozen in St paul off of Century ave north about a mile. It was picked at 2:00 am Saturday and driven up to St. Paul and he was selling by 1000am. I paid 6.50 and got a good bakers dozen, actually 18 ears, but some were small.

I also bought some in Buffalo on Sunday afternoon. Again a good bakers dozen plus 2 free peaches, but it was 7.00. It was OK, no where near as good as Bauers. That is all I have bought so far this year. If you find corn from Tennesse or Mississippi, try some it was real good last year, but it is only available b-4 the Minnesota corn is ready.

South of town. Try reseingers vegetable stand in farmington. North of 50 on Akin Road. $4.50/ Dozen you get about 15. If no one is there he has a self service cash box. Exact change. My kid ate seven ears two nights in a row. He doesn't even salt or butter them. Best corn is yet to come.

I like that kid....if the corn is good, why add salt and butter. It reminds me of a restaurant owner that did not supply A-1 or Heinz 57. He said if the steak is done right, it is an insult to him and the chef to season it. smile

ULT I AGREE 100% with the steak/ A-1 Heinz 57 deal, but I do like a little butter and salt on my corn. Was the corn even heated up. I have seen people eat it not cooked. I don't think I could do that one.

Fishinbabe did they say they had corn ready to sell yet.

I've done that with fresh right off the stalk young stuff. I do butter the tough kind though.

The corn was boiled...it's funny I love Heinz 57 I have learned to not use it on steaks it is insult to her or family if I put it on a steak. It is great with out it. But I have learned to eat it.

I've had corn from Elmers in the past and it was good. Had it 2x this year and it has been terrible. Small kernels, half dead ears, etc.

Glenn I wish I could by my corn from that place all summer. What a nice thought.

Just got some from the stand at 66th Lyndale in Richfield. Nice size ears, good flavor, tender and juicy. 3.75 for 6. Work him a bit and you will get 8 or 7.00 for good dozen. Corn came from Eden Prairie. Got to find the Waverly corn.

Planning on venturing out this weekend to some of my past favorites.

    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
