      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 .

Last harvest of the year

Recommended Posts

I also still have Kohlrabi, Daikons, Romaine lettuce, and beets in my garden. The latest I have had veggies in 35 years of gardening. And it isn't suppose to freeze all this coming week. Have to love it if you are a gardener.

Friend from church just gave me some stuff from his garden....  Arugula, parsley, and rosemary.  Then the guy across the street came over and gave me a pheasant breast.  He just got back from SD. 

 

Time for sous vide pheasant next week.

Who is still harvesting food from their garden?

 

My wife and I are still eating a lot of delicious spinach, kale and chard which will continue through early December this year. We have gotten down to 23f in the west metro but still not cold enough to kill off these hardy plants. The bigger chard leaves wilted, but the new growth is still coming on. The colder temps finally killed the herbs and arugula. The Kale and spinach didn't flinch under the snow and colder temps.

 

One of the producing greens bed was planted in March, so it has definitely been a very long and productive growing season this year.  

 

My Hovland garden, which is 10 feet from the front door of our cabin planted the their week of April, was cleaned out by the deer prior to firearms season, so we were not able to harvest kale and chard up there during camp as an addition to our meals, but I believe we could have if not for the marauders (We did go three for three on deer though).

My carrots were a bust this year. I lost about half of them to rot. They do keep well in the ground and seem to get sweeter the longer they are in. I typically dig  a lot mine right before rifle deer season. This past season we had eaten all of the good ones and didn't have any left in the ground after first frost for storage or canning.
