      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 .

Washing potatoes

Recommended Posts

I always wash mine out on the lawn with the hose.Let them lay out there for a few hours to dry off and put them in a dark place.To early right now to dig them.Even if they are dead on top......they will keep the best in the ground.I usually dig them mid to late Oct.

When I grew up we had a potato patch that yielded about 2000 lbs of spuds. Maybe it was the amount but we just put them in sacks until we needed them. I doubt washing them will do any harm.

When I was a kid, I don't remember how many sacks, but we'd just get rid of most of the dirt with our hands before they went in the sack.

I don't grow near as many potatoes now, and I do what Ken does. Spread them out on the lawn and hit em with a hose and let them dry. I keep them in milk crates, and cover them with a tarp.

We always dug them in late summer, once the vines dried off, and cured them on the north half of the corn crib, out of the sun of course, usually without washing them to keep from harming the mature skin as much as possible. Even spading fork holes usually healed and the spuds kept better. This summer might not actually be warm enough to get a good cure.
