      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 .

cold temps delaying perennials

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem. Several of the perennials in the wife's flower garden havent shown any signs of life yet. The hardy ones like the daylilies and irises are going strong but stuff like the russian sage and the campanula (canterbury bells) are doing zilch. Are we that delayed or should I plan on going shopping for some new plants. When we got pounded with that 7 inches of rain last August some of the plants actually lost all of their leaves from being so waterlogged. They came back, but I'm wondering if there wasn't enough energy left in the root to regenerate this spring.

From what I've seen in my properties, we're about 2 1/2 - 3 weeks behind a "normal" season.

Yesterday we mowed a Senior high for the first time this season, and about 40% of it still could have been skipped for another week.

If you look around, there's still a fair amount of trees that are still just showing VERY small buds.

I've got some places that want me to replace bushes, but I've told them that I'm holding off until at least June 1 before I we make any decisions on which ones are dead, and which ones are just being slow to go.

Hey Steve! Good to see you on here again. Been meaning to stop in and visit with your Dad but have been on a whirlwind tour this spring seems like. Our stuff is S-L-O-W too. Not sure exactly where you're living now but I know our iris, tulips, tiger lillies, day lillies, horseradish, hackberries, spruce, etc., are all way behind. Just this morning I noticed the first of the wild plums starting to bloom on the road cut east of the house. That's usually a mid to late April event in SC MN. Checking the GDU accumulation for May thus far at the SROC and the few accumulated in April (base 50) and soil temperatures they keep record of, it's no wonder things look the way they do.

Like these guys said, wouldn't give up just yet.
