      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 .

Roundup Ready sweetcorn

Recommended Posts

I will plant one acre of this for a roadside stand.  The herbicide tolerance seems insignificant compared to the fact that it is also a Bt.  It is a bicolor se variety.  I will plant 2,000 green bean seeds for the same market.

Some folks have done the Round Up Ready thing locally and it is handy but spendy. No worries about foxtail which usually is the biggest weed issue here. Flavor seemed OK although I'm sure they've improved the variety selection since the last stuff I ate a couple years ago.

Would you be able to sell at a higher price if you could advertise that the items didn't have the rountup ready deal/  Lots of folks seem to be shying away from those types of products.

So i had a couple pieces of this brand sweet corn friday at a bbq at work.  It is so good, i could have eaten 10 ears.  I think you all will like it.

Oh it is dry heat until June when monsoon rolls in then it is humid and really hot.  Nothing like getting the paper at 4 am to a 95 degree sw breeze.  It is darn good corn i will say that.

This variety of sweet corn is clearly superior!  The eating quality is excellent, as evidenced by the number of repeat customers claiming this is the best corn they have ever eaten.  About 15 percent of the stalks produced two saleable ears, planting population was 25,000 ppa.  Most of the ears have 22 rows around the cob and are 40+ kernels in length.  No bugs.  No worms.  No weeds.  I feel the harvest window is five days longer than the conventional peaches and cream variety.  We have sold nearly 2000 bakers dozen as we wind down the season on Saturday.

That is nice. Corn ear worm has been a real pain in some spots this season.The first corn we ate had a bunch in it. Discovering one of those large ugly things munching on an ear usually turns people off. How did the green beans come out?

The green beans performed poorly as they were always suffering from too much soil moisture throughout the season.  I am not impressed with the disease tolerance of the Jade II variety.  Germination rates were also disappointing.  I will try a different cultivar next season, any suggestions?  We enjoyed success with dark red norland potato, straight eight cucumber, and Oregon spring tomatoes.
