      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 .

Spraying apple trees

Recommended Posts

I have 9 apple trees in the back yard. I've heard so many different things I don't know what to do. I've been told to spray them with insectacide when the blossom, before they blossom, after they blossom, middle of the summer, and never.

These trees really crank out the apples. Last fall I had to pick some apples early cuz the trees were so bent over from the weight, but a lot of apples had bugs and worms.

So I toss the question out to yous guys, when should I spray them and what should I spray them with????

I checked on this a while back and they recommend whey to much for me but go to the Arbor Day site and there's a fruit tree schedule,I got mine down to no bugs,scale or rust with 3 sprays one as I see blossems start one after most all fall and one when apples are pea sized seems to work

Spraying for fungal disorders (leaf spot, apple scab, rusts) is done early on during leaf growth. Usually spray when leafs are half out and spray again 7-10 days later. Some products recommend multiple treatments, but usually 2 is fine unless you know youre trees get it particularly bad.

If you're talking about insects and protecting fruit then that is done during fruit development. I've never done that type of spraying because of the food involved, I didn't have that certification.

You need to identify what you're trying to control and then pick a course of action.

We have spayed our 6 apple trees in the past but last year we hung a baby food jar in each tree half full of vinegar and while I can't say we had totally bug free apples it really kept the bugs down. It worked.

Does vinager evaporate?? Meaning, do you have to go re-fill from time to time?

Yes about once every two to three weeks. You will see lots of moths and bugs in the jars.

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
