      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 .

Planting Raspberries

Recommended Posts

We started out with a small patch of Raspberries, now, thanks to the birds they are all over the yard. They spread pretty easy.

I heard they grow best in direct sunlight but we have out best producers growing under a Mtn Ash.

Good Luck,

Mike

There pretty easy. Just plant them and water them until their well established. They will usually produce the fall of the next season. Do not cut them down till the 3rd year and then take out the obviosly dead canes in the spring of the year. We grow them in full sun, sandy soil in a 5x10 section of the garden. Do not put in very wide rows or they will shred your arms when you pick them. I fertilize them once a year and that seems to be plenty.

Good luck

I grow what are called everbearers.The best I have seen is one from the U of M called Redwing.Plant the roots and let them grow this year.

The canes will be green.They will bear fruit on the top 1/3 of the cane.Then next year let them leaf out and cut off the tops that are leafless.These canes will have fruit on the them in July.

Meanwhile there will be new green canes coming up.These will have fruit on them in Sept.and be next years brown canes.

They are called everbearers,but they really aren't.You just get 1/2 the fruit on top one year and the bottom 1/2 the next.

If you plant regular once a year raspberries,they will bear all their fruit in July.

It is important to cut the brown canes off at ground level once they are done bearing whether you go with the everbearers or the once a year bearers.Each cane only has fruit `1 time,so if you don't cut off the brown canes after they bear,you will wind up with a thick bramble patch.

Raspberries are great. Just realize they spread like crazy and are tough to control. They spread by underground roots. So dont put them in an area you dont want them to completely take over within a few years.

My father has a nice raspberry patch. He has them in narrow rows and the ground around them covered in wood/bark chips. The rows and chips help in picking them and keeping them weeded and the "runners" under controll...

    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
    • maybe a chick.  we had one here for a couple weeks.   
    • Minn Kota  55 Riptide with foot pedal and hand held remote so when you first connect the battery with out the foot pedal connected or any of the control cables connected, the shaft will begin turning to the right. with foot pedal and wireless remote cables connected the unit stops turning but does not respond to the left or right control. It will go forward. it was purchased used and worked fine in April. In July i went to use it and it acted as I described above. I have read several of the forums but did not see the exact same symptoms. help please. thanks in advance
