      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 .

Creeping Charlie and Crab Grass

Recommended Posts

I have used a product called Mec Amine-D. It has worked very well for me. It is a liquid and you would need to use a sprayer. If you just had pockets of creeping charlie a hand spayer works just great. As for the crabgrass granular is the way to go imo. If you keep your lawn mowed high and watered you should keep it in check. Hope this helps.

Creeping Charlie is an FAQ for me. You are looking for a product with a high content of the active ingredient Dicamba. All of your chemicals are required to have an active ingredient list on the front of the package. Just look for one will a high content of Dicamba.

Some will tell you boron is the answer to Creeping Charlie. Be careful when using boron. A tiny bit too much and you will kill everything in the area. But if you don't use enough it will just act as a fertilizer. Boron can be a fertilizer in small quantities, in a very narrow window its a selective herbicide great with Creeping Charlie, or in modest to large quantities its a broad spectrum herbicide that will kill pretty much everything in the area.

Dicamba is your answer

The product I have used that works great is Q4. Kills your broadleaf weeds as well as crabgrass.

I picked it up from Lesco. It is a bit pricey but works.

One of the challenges is with creeping charlie or "ground ivy" is that it develops a waxy cuticle layer on the leaves that makes it difficult for herbicide to penetrate.

The best times to hit CC is when the flowers are blooming and in the fall after the first frost. Other times of the year and its pretty difficult to get consistent results.

I'm sure you'll find that it spreads by rhizomes creeping across the ground, when I'm trying to pull it out, I rake it with a hard tined garden rake. You can get quite a bit out since its an interwoven mat. I do that in the summer and spray whats left in the fall. Its been working pretty well.
