      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.

Don't know if it is the best but we had corn at work today and it was mighty tasty. Came from the stand in the parking lot of the osseo meat market. The Osseo meat market's beef tenderloin is on sale for $5.99 a pound too! Steak and sweet corn mmmmmmmmmm.

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.

    • How hard has he been running this 400 HP rig? Might be as simple as a plug wire or might require a compression test. 
    • Get the choke adjusted that should take care of the cold start issue. A weak fuel pump usually starts to show up at high RPMs.   If left to idle the fuel pump fills the carb bowl, as you accelerate the weak pump can't keep up and the engine bogs and bucks.  A bad fuel filter will do the same thing and is often overlooked. You probably have 2 filters,  one on the gas line and one inside the inlet of the carb.  Replace them, don't clean them.   A  fuel pump pressure test would be the next thing to do.   If your getting the bog throughout the power band then I'd suspect something electrical but it could show up just at higher RPMs or load as well.  Condition of plug wires, dist cap, rotor, pickup coil, and vacuum advance.  1st check all the vacuum lines for cracks and loose connections.  Something that old is bound to have bad lines.  While your at it clean the PCV vavle.  Google HEI distributor to test the pickup coil and ohm values.   Check the linkage to vacuum advance.  You can do a visual on the cap and rotor but its hard to find a hairline crack.   Keep us updated.  
    • I was seeing the same things on the lakes in Roseville/Shoreview. I assumed that with the cold temps over night the ice was growing and expanding causing a few of those cracks to show up.  Maybe some of the light snow helped push the ice down enough to let a little water seep through.
    • Tried wiring the choke open at operating temp and took for a drive. Still misses at appx 45 mph. Always seem to miss about 90% of the time at that speed although sometimes at around 30mph. Next question,,, fuel pump maybe or possibly the EGR VALVE. Dont have a way to test the fuel pump but thinking with the way its hard to start I was thinking possibly low fuel pressure. 
    • Bald Eagle skimmed over on Saturday.  Today after the relatively light snow there are many areas where the cracks look like water came up through and discolored the ice.  At least that what I think happened. Since there was only an inch or so of snow I am surprised that it pushed the ice down and let water come up.  Anyone else have an explanation?
    • I am assuming it was either an Ion, SM Lithium, or drill setup... If it is, no need for a slush copter. I put my slush bucket over the hole... drill... then reverse. In 12" of ice I can do 6 holes with one dump of the bucket. Every 6" beyond that takes another dumping of the bucket.
    • I have the parts on order to get the unit set up for the ice.  I ended up buying a marcum lithium shuttle for my LX7 and then plan to mount the Helix on the shuttle that came with my LX7.  I am hoping to find walk-able ice in my area this weekend and hopefully the parts show up before then so i can give it a go.  I have the pre-chirp model of the helix so with a little luck i can get them to cooperate.
    • Big home game tonight against a very young and vastly improved Calgary team.  Should be a great game.
    • I sold my old 4 stroke and bought a new electric this year because of the fumes.  Even drilling 4 holes nearly gassed me every time.  
    • I'd be careful about extending these older guys at this point....extending Koivu was a mistake and if Staal proves out and he's worth it we can sign him later...like we should have done with Koivu...but we've already been down that discussion. Agree on the 3 on 3 OT wins...we showed more aggressiveness, it paid off...and then it becomes a confidence factor which we certainly should have going forward.  Big game tonight.
