What a nice article. You sound like such a nice family. I dont even read our papers here they never have anything nice to say. I need to subscribe to your papers up there since one day I WILL move back there.

Carolyn, you have such a great family. I commend you for having a green farm! This is my favorite quote of the article from your husband,

Quote:
"We try to be at all the kids events. It's a balance, but I think it's important for our family to keep that as a priority."

Hi Fishin Chicks,

I read the article also in the Duluth paper several weeks ago.

I think it is fantastic that you and your sister both got your captains licenses! And even better that you started a business together chartering. Grand Marais is a fantastic area. And I hear you do get some nice really Kings up there as Thunder Bay plants alot of kings, you probably get a bunch of those that navigate down, maybe?

My huband has his Coast Guard 6 pack Charter Fishing license also, he encourages me to get mine, but I need a bit more time docking, etc. I have spent many, many hours driving the bigger boats on Lake Michigan and Lake Superior in rough weather, fog, etc. I am familiar with the electronics and radar and have learned alot of the "rules of the road" from the hubby. Maybe someday I will take the class.

Are you fishing up there all summer, or are you down in SW MN for the rest of the summer?

Heidi-

The article you are referring to is not my family. We live in SW Minnesota year round. I signed up as "fishinchicks" long before I knew about those girls. I have two daughters that like to fish with me, that is how we came up with our name.

I have to say, though I have not responeded to a lot of posts lately, I have read about what you are doing up there. Sounds really cool. Your hubby encouraging you to get your CG license in similar to mine wanting me to get my CDL driver's license so I can haul grain in the semi. I, however, have resisted the idea. smile

Nice to have you on FM!

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn,

Thanks for the update. Sorry for the mix up.

Getting your Semi Truck drivers License would be great!

Thanks for the welcome.

Heidi

    • Sorry. I see this concept is completely over everyone's head here.    
    •   Just outlaw anything that might hurt someone.    If it saves just one life..... Do it for the children....   And they want us to believe these 2 political parties are different. 
    • Luckily for me my neighbor across the road bought a hive with 2500 or 25,000 bees, I forget, last summer. Have bees everywhere here in the summer and we plant a lot of flowers and will be increasing that this summer to help the little dudes. Even got a jar of honey from him last year!
    • I think just about anything can be smoked. would be easy to get the crappies over dry. they turned out great using the technique above. dang near as good as smoked eggs!  
    • Raised beds, you hear people talk about them but what are they? Depending on how much money you want to spend on material and dirt a raised bed can be just a couple 2x8’s nailed together to waist high beds that you don’t need to bend over to work. Now that waist high one will with dirt is going to cost you some compared to the shallow 2x8 bed. Either way a raised bed does some or all of the following things. It eliminates the need for tilling, as you never step into the bed thus compacting it. When you fill the bed it allows you too put clean dirt exactly where you want it, not on the paths between beds where you walk and never plant. Weed control is much easier. Containing the crop you are growing is much easier. Harvesting is much easier. You can add fertilizer taylor made for the crop you are growing not fertilizing the entire garden that maybe 30% of that you walk on and don’t grow in.   The last few years I have been switching to low raised beds and container growing. A typical 4x8 bed takes twenty bags of dirt to fill or about 500#’s the beds are so fluffy that I can turn them over with my hand or just a little rake. This season I am going to add three more beds which will give me total of 11 and over 50 five gallon containers. Of course if room is not a problem then traditional planting stills works just fine especially for spuds and melons and squash. Just offering other ideas.
    •   But yet Christians claim they do.....  
    •   The one I made called for cumin. I think next time I might do something in between my recipe and this one.
    • I always thought smoking was for more fattier fish such as lake trout, salmon, suckers, whitefish and the like?
    •     This sounds good. Gonna have to try it   Plus the emphasis on vegetables in most Chilis
